No appointments required for pop-up, mobile sites in Jacksonville Saturday

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Saturday morning, pop-up vaccination sites on Jacksonville’s Northside and Westside will administer Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccines and no appointments are required.

They are expected to be busy today, especially ahead of Monday when the requirements are going to allow everyone 16 and older to get the shot.

  • Highlands Library at 1826 Dunn Ave. - 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
  • Mary Lena Gibbs Park, 6974 Wilson Blvd. - 10 a.m.-7 p.m.

The Agape Family Health mobile vaccination buses will be at three locations on Saturday:

  • Sanctuary at Mount Calvary at 9 a.m.
  • The Citadel Church at 1 p.m.
  • EWC from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The mobile vaccination sites offer the Moderna vaccine with no registration required and are open to the public.

There are also no appointments necessary at the large vaccinations sites at Gateway Mall and Regency Square Mall, and smaller sites at Legends Center, 5130 Soutel Drive, and Celebration Church, 9555 R.G. Skinner Parkway, and Edward Waters College, 1658 Kings Road. All those sites other than EWC currently administer Pfizer vaccines, although some will be changing to Johnson & Johnson on Tuesday (see chart below).

Appointments to get vaccines are increasingly available at hundreds of pharmacies in neighborhoods across Florida and Georgia as well as sites set up by county health departments.

There are changes coming to all vaccination sites as Florida will begin allowing all adults to get vaccinated and, in the case of sites giving Pfizer vaccine -- anyone 16 or older accompanied by an adult or guardian to sign a consent form.

Monday is also the last day you can get the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine at the federal sites. Those who got the first dose at those sites can still get their second dose there. On Tuesday, only Johnson & Johnson shots will be offered to those coming for the first time.
