Orange County's COVID-19 vaccine site at Camping World Stadium will now offer booster shots to those who want them.
Mayor Jerry Demings announced the new program during a press conference on Monday. The booster shot is recommended for people who are at least 6 months out from the second shot of their two-dose vaccine. The CDC recommends it for people over the age of 65, those with underlying health conditions that would be exacerbated by COVID-19 and people whose job puts them at high risk of coronavirus exposure.
The booster shots on offer at Camping World Stadium starting today are made by Pfizer. The site will still offer first and second doses for COVID-19 vaccinations. The site is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week.
