Here’s where to get vaccinated in Central Florida
COVID-19 vaccinations sites now offer shots to all Florida residents 16 and older wanting the Pfizer vaccine or 18 and older wanting the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Note that not all sites offer the Pfizer vaccine and that 16- and 17-yearolds will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian and sign a consent form.
This week, the FEMA-run sites in Orlando at Valencia College’s West Campus as well as ones in Jacksonville, Tampa and Miami have switched to administering the Johnson & Johnson one-dose shot to previously unvaccinated residents 18 and older. (See more details below.)
We have compiled a list of vaccination sites across Central Florida that will be updated frequently.
There’s also a statewide email address for home-bound seniors to register to have the COVID-19 vaccine brought directly to them. To request vaccination, email HomeboundVaccine@em.myflorida.com or call 1-866-7796121.
Anyone seeking a vaccination will need proof of being afullor part-time Florida resident. Examples of accepted documentation include a valid Florida driver’s license or Florida identification card or any two of the following:
A deed, mortgage, monthly mortgage statement, mortgage payment booklet or residential rental or lease agreement.
A utility hookup or work order that is not more than 2 months old or a utility bill that is not more than 2 months old.
Mail from a bank or other financial institution — including checking, savings, or investment account statements — that is not more than 2 months old.
Mail from a government agency, such as a tax bill showing a Florida address, that is not more than 2 months old.
Caution: Beware of scams. Do not fill out Eventbrite vaccine registration forms unless they are provided through a county’s website or the links in this list, and do not register for a vaccination appointment that requires payment. However, many providers ask for insurance information if you have coverage.
