ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Five Orange County vaccination sites will shut down operations later this week.

South Econ, Meadow Woods, West Orange and Goldenrod Park recreational centers will no longer offer doses of Pfizer’s vaccine after Thursday. Leaders clarified these sites will not reopen to offer second doses and are directing people to get their second shot at Barnett Park or any other provider willing to administer the shot.
