JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. – A new vaccination site is opening up in Jacksonville Beach on Sunday, the city announced Wednesday.

The federally-supported site is one of two satellite sites that are moving to new locations in Duval County. There is also a new site opening up at the Oceanway Community Center (12215 Sago Ave. W) on Sunday.

The two original satellite sites, one on the Westside and one in Northwest Jacksonville, will remain open for second shots.

The Jacksonville Beach site at the Carver Center (777 5th Ave. S) and the Oceanway site will be open for 10 days, until March 23. They will be able to handle up to 500 vaccines a day.

The sites will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The walk-up sites, which will offer the Pfizer vaccine, don’t require an appointment and vaccines will be administered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The Carver Center site will follow eligibility guidelines set forth by the State of Florida. For current guidelines and the most up-to-date information, visit either of the following sites: bit.ly/ FLVAX or https://www.floridadisaster.org/covid19/vaccine/.
