The first vaccination clinic will runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Jan. 4 and 5 at Daytona Stadium, 3917 LPGA Blvd, Daytona Beach.

Drive-through vaccinations will be offered. Vaccine supply is limited and will be offered first come, first served.

There will be no cost for COVID-19 vaccinations offered by DOH-Volusia.

Photo IDs will be required to receive a vaccination.

Moderna only

Only the Moderna vaccine will be provided at this initial community vaccination event.

Prior to receiving a vaccination, individuals will receive the Moderna Fact Sheet on the Emergency Use Authorization and information on what to expect during and after the injection.

Individuals also will be required to complete a medical screening form and sign an informed consent form before receiving a vaccination.

They are encouraged to contact their primary care provider with questions about whether
they should receive the vaccine before presenting to a vaccination site.

Each person will receive a second dose reminder card that lists the date and the manufacturer for the first vaccination.

The Moderna booster vaccination should be received 28 days after the initial dose. The second dose must be from the same manufacturer as the first vaccine. After receiving a vaccination, recipients will be required to remain on site for 15 to 30 minutes for medical monitoring.

DOH-Volusia will return to this location in 28 days to offer the second dose to those who are due. Future vaccination dates in several locations across the county will be based on vaccine availability. Notifications will be provided to the news media.
