Two local locations will be offering the COVID-19 vaccination in the next week.

Matthews Hope will be making COVID-19 vaccinations available to the public from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 21, during the homeless ministry’s food, hygiene and clothing pantry drive. Hygiene items, single-serve food items and adult undergarments are requested.

Matthew’s Hope is at 611 Business Park Blvd., Suite 101, Winter Garden.

The town of Oakland and the Healthy West Orange Arts and Heritage Center at the Town of Oakland are hosting a COVID-19 Vaccination Health Fair in partnership with Orange County Government and the Florida Department of Health in Orange County from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Aug. 25. 

Oakland and neighboring residents can receive a free Pfizer vaccine at a trailer to be located across from the Arts and Heritage Center at 126 Petris Ave. at the roundabout in the Town Center.

The fair will also feature booths from Shepherd's Hope and Healthy West Orange. They will be sharing information about their health services, providing PPE, smart thermometers, vaccination cardholders and more to visitors – while supplies last. 

The vaccinations are first come, first served and are offered while supplies last. Children 12 to 17 years-old must be accompanied by a parent/legal guardian.
