Barnett Park to serve as FEMA vaccine site for 3 days

The Federal Emergency Management Agency will be opening a temporary COVID-19 vaccination satellite location.

The gymnasium at Barnett Park will welcome walk-ups for all those eligible to receive the shot. No appointments are needed.

Days and hours of operation include Thursday, March 11 through March 13, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Those eligible include Florida residents or part-time residents over the age of 65, educators or staff members at a school/college, including licensed childcare providers (any age), a sworn law enforcement officer or firefighter (any age), a health care worker with direct patient contact (any age), a veteran (any age), or an extremely medically vulnerable/high-risk individual.

The Florida Department of Health (DOH) has published a form for physicians to certify that they have determined an individual to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 and eligible to receive the vaccine. You can download the form on the DOH website here (PDF).
