A COVID-19 mobile vaccination site is coming to the First Coast News parking lot to ensure the vaccine is available to anyone who wants it.

The location of our studio, 1070 E. Adams St., Jacksonville, Florida, is considered an underserved area when it comes to COVID-19 vaccine access.

The event is taking place starting Sunday, May 16, and Friday, May 21, when both the Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be administered. Pfizer shots are available to anyone over the age of 12, with parent or legal guardians required to be present for anyone under 18. The J&J shot is available to those 18 and older.

On Sunday, May 23, the J&J shot will be administered.
