Orange County offers free COVID-19 vaccination events before Thanksgiving

Five events taking place between Monday and Wednesday

It’s Thanksgiving week and many people might have time off work and children have time off school, so Orange County is offering several COVID-19 vaccination events around the area.

The Florida Department of Health in Orange County is offering Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last at each event.

County officials said for children 12 to 17, only the Pfizer vaccine will be available, and those in that age group must have a parent or legal guardian present during the vaccination and complete a consent form.

Flu shots will also be offered at most of the events. See notation below.
