Those still in need of the COVID-19 vaccine will have an opportunity to receive it locally Tuesday, June 15.

Health Hero Florida will be administering the Pfizer vaccine at Gotha Middle School's gynasium from 3 to 6 p.m. No appointments are necessary, as only walk-ups are being accepted.

Guardians must accompany minors, and anyone who is 12 years old or older is eligible. Guardians can fill out, print and bring a parental consent form with them to save time.

The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses, so anyone receiving it should plan to schedule their second dose on the school's scheduled date, at another Orange County Public Schools event or at an outside location. Gotha Middle's second-dose clinic is scheduled for 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 13.

Here is the remaining schedule for OCPS-hosted summer vaccination clinics in West Orange County:

  • Chain of Lakes Middle School gymnasium; 8:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 26 (second doses only)
  • Ocoee Middle School media center; 3 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 23 (first doses) and 3 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 14 (second doses)
  • SunRidge Middle School gymnasium; 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 29 (first doses) and 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 20
