No appointment needed for COVID-19 vaccine clinic Wed at Fairgrounds


INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — No appointments will be required for a COVID-19 vaccine clinic set for Wednesday at the Indian River County Fairgrounds, county officials said.

The Florida Department of Health will conduct the walk-in clinic inside the fairgrounds’ Expo Center from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., county spokesperson Kathleen Keenan said. Health officials will be administering 125 first dose shots of the Pfizer vaccine.

County officials were previously conducting the no-appointment vaccine clinics in the field on the fairgrounds property. Officials moved the clinic to the inside as Florida prepares to enter rainy season.

Those under 18 who attend the no-appointment clinics will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. It was unclear if the county planned to have more COVID-19 vaccine clinics – that don’t require appointments – in the future.
