Orlando Health is offering appointment-free first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19 to anyone 12 years of age and older at a drive-thru clinic. It’s located at 44 Lake Beauty Drive on its downtown Orlando campus, and patients can remain in their vehicles during the vaccination process.
“Evidence is clear that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and highly effective at preventing transmission of the virus,” said George Ralls, M.D., chief medical officer, Orlando Health. “We urge everyone to make the decision today to get vaccinated and help create a safer environment for themselves, their family members, friends and coworkers.”
The drive-thru site is offering vaccinations from 7 a.m. to noon Monday through Wednesday, June 28 through 30.
Identification is required to obtain either dose of the vaccine. Individuals going for their second shot should also take documentation that they have received their first dose. A parent or legal guardian must accompany anyone younger than 18 to their appointment.
Orlando Health clinicians are prepared to give about 100 doses per hour each day.
In case of inclement weather, the clinic may need to temporarily suspend operations until conditions are safe. Patients will be asked to wait in their cars until conditions improve.
