ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - In an effort to serve more minority and vulnerable communities and those with health disparities, Orange County is launching a program to bring the COVID-19 vaccine to you.
The Orange County’s Mobile COVID-19 Vaccination Program begins on Monday, April 12.
"The Mayor and County staff are working together to strategically select locations of high need for COVID vaccinations for possible future opportunities," said Orange County Government Director of Public Safety Danny Banks. "We’re fortunate our Mobile Program is the first time the county is able to be in full control of location and vaccine allocation, so we believe this is a tremendous opportunity to help better serve our community."
The first drive-thru location will be at Barber Park at 3701 Gatlin Ave. in Orlando from April 12 - 16. From 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., the site will be by appointment only.

Then from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., the site will take limited walk-ups while supplies last.
Residents 16 and older are eligible to get the vaccine at the site. Minors must have a parent or guardian present at the time of vaccination.
Anyone getting the vaccine must show proof of Florida residency or part-time Florida residency. The site will offer the Pfizer vaccine. Orange County officials say up to 1,000 vaccines will be offered per day.
Additional sites for rotations will be dependent on supply and demand and will be announced at a later date.
