JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – More than 11.4 million Floridians have received at least one dose of one of the COVID-19 vaccines since the shots became available in mid-December.

You can always find a vaccination site location near you by vising vaccinefinder.org, but there are some public locations available this week.

  • Agape Family Health and the JTA offer a mobile vaccination site at the Gateway Transit Hub on the Northside from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. each day through the end of the month.
  • The Department of Health-Duval offers shots at three locations this week: 1) South Jacksonville Immunization Center at 3225 University Blvd. Monday through Friday only from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., with extended hours until 7 p.m. on Tuesday; 2) Pearl Immunization Center, 5322 North Pearl Street, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; 3) Central Health Plaza at 515 West 6th Street from Tuesday to Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. (A $10 food voucher will be given at each DOH-Duval vaccination site -- while supplies last.)

Since the second week of February, pharmacies at select Publix, Walmart, Sam’s Club and Winn-Dixie stories are all taking appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations. They now give vaccines without appointments.

The state Department of Health offers preregistration for appointments at state-run sites, including each county’s health department, at myvaccine.fl.gov. Residents without internet access can still call for appointments.

For people who received a first dose, you must return to the same place for your second dose.

It is important to not mix the vaccines, so second shots are only available from the same place as your first shot. Bring the COVID-19 vaccine card provided when you got your first dose with you to get your second shot.
