Orange County is expanding mobile COVID-19 vaccine services through August and into September. Starting this week, community centers throughout Orlando will be hosting sites for one-day vaccine clinics.

A partnership between Orange County government and Florida Department of Health Orange County, the mobile vaccine program comes as Florida hits troubling milestones in new COVID case numbers and hospitalizations and area theme parks resume mask requirements.
