Anyone in Orange County who needs a replacement COVID-19 vaccine card will now need to make an appointment with the medical records department, the county health department announced Friday.

Starting Monday, July 26 the Florida Department of Health in Orange County will no longer process CDC COVID-19 vaccine replacement cards online but move to an appointment-only process. No walk-ins will be accepted.
