5 vaccination sites opening at Duval County schools

New locations open as ‘Month of Action’ ends

The five sites will be open on their assigned day, as well as 20 days later for the second shot.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Five new vaccination sites are opening at Duval County schools over the next two weeks.

Anyone coming to these clinics will be getting the Pfizer vaccine, so that means they’ll have to come back for a second shot. Each clinic will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on its assigned days.

These vaccination clinics are open to anyone 12 years old and older, as Pfizer was approved for ages 12 and up in May. If someone is younger than 18, they can still show up alone, but they have to bring one of the consent forms and a photo ID.

Take a look at where the five new sites will be located and when they’ll be open:

These sites are opening just two weeks after several of the state-run sites shut down in the area. According to the Florida Department of Health, more than 9.2 million Floridians are fully vaccinated.

But there are still pushes for people across the country to get the shot as the new and more contagious Delta variant spreads. These clinics are opening at the end of the “Month of Action,” the effort to get 70% of the country to get at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by July 4.

In a partnership between Duval County Public Schools and the Florida Department of Health in Duval Clounty, each person will get a $10 grocery voucher for getting the shot.
