The City of Orlando will offer mobile vaccine sites in Orlando neighborhoods to make sure that families are all vaccinated ahead of the start of the school year.

The vaccines will be administered at seven City of Orlando neighborhood centers, offering the Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer vaccines.

Residents 18 and up can receive the vaccine of their choice. However, children ages 12-17 must receive the Pfizer vaccine, and only with parental consent.


"It's critical we continue to make the vaccine available to as many of our residents as possible, especially families, now that teenagers are eligible to receive it," Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said. "Our neighborhood centers are conveniently located throughout the city and it only takes about 30 minutes to get the vaccine there."

The vaccine schedule is below.
