JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Tuesday is the last day to receive a COVID-19 vaccination at the federally supported Gateway Mall site in Jacksonville.

It’s one of just four federally supported mass vaccination sites in the state.

David Mayo stopped at the Gateway Mall site to get the Johnson & Johnson one-dose vaccine on Tuesday. His wife said one shot works best for his schedule because he’s a truck driver.

“I’m doing it because my granddaughter is pregnant, and I’m having a great grandbaby, boy, if it wasn’t for that I wouldn’t be getting it,” Mayo said.

For those who can’t make it out to Gateway on Tuesday, there are still options if you want to get a vaccine locally.

FEMA recommends visiting vaccine.gov to find a site near you.

All you have to do is check which vaccines you are looking for and enter your ZIP code, then a list of different pharmacies and other options will pop up on your screen with the address.

News4Jax also has a county-by-county breakdown of local vaccination options.

In Jacksonville, some of the other locations you can go to get a COVID-19 vaccine include:

  • Edward Waters College
  • The Legends Center
  • Celebration Church
  • Regency Square Mall

According to officials, the Regency location is offering both the Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines without an appointment. Pfizer is approved for children 12 and up.

It is important to remember, those younger than 18 do need to have a parent or guardian with them to give consent.

So far, more than 10 million Floridians have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine with roughly 37% of the population in Duval County vaccinated.

The Gateway Mall site will be open until 7 p.m. Tuesday before it closes for good. You do not need an appointment.
