Oviedo Mall COVID-19 vaccine site moves to larger location

The COVID-19 vaccination site at the Oviedo Mall is expanding to a larger location to accommodate more patients. 

The new site is at the Sears store at the Oviedo Mall. This will quadruple the potential occupancy load, officials said.

"Currently, the vaccine site consists of two Oviedo Mall storefronts, totaling 12,530 SF. The new 46,095 SF location, a former Sears store at Oviedo Mall, also features direct parking lot access to the entrance, making the site more easily accessible."
