The Florida Department of Health in Orange County launched its COVID-19 Business/Organization Mobile Vaccination Request form on the Department’s website.

Any businesses and members of the community can apply to have crews bring a mobile COVID-19 unit to them.

“We will try to vaccinate as many as possible,” Pino said.

The service manager of Hawkers Asian Street Fare Justine Potvin said this program makes it convenient and could encourage more people to get the vaccine.

Once a form is filled out online, Orange County health leaders said they will contact you to talk about scheduling a vaccination date.
