The County of Volusia and the Department of Health will provide 2,000 vaccines during the week of February 15 with scheduled events for Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Appointments will be scheduled through Sharecare, the statewide preregistration system.
As of Tuesday, February 16 vaccine operations for first dose appointments will transition to a walk-up event at the Fairgrounds, with face masks being required in the building. Staff and signage will direct individuals once on-site.
Second dose events will also take place on February 18 and 19 at the Fairgrounds.
These are closed events that will only provide vaccines for individuals who received their first dose at the same location on January 21 and 22. These second doses will be administered through the drive-up process managed in the same manner as their first shot.
According to a release, upon receiving their first dose, individuals were given a vaccination card with a date for their second dose. Individuals should report to the fairgrounds on this date during the same hour timeframe as their first dose appointment.
Individuals must bring their vaccination cards to receive their second dose. An email reminder will be sent through Eventbrite approximately one week before the second dose date.
Individuals for both first and second dose events are asked not to arrive before their scheduled appointment time.
To preregister for a vaccine appointment at the Volusia County Fairgrounds, visit myvaccine.fl.gov or call 866-201-7314.
Once preregistered, individuals will receive a call when vaccine appointments become available. When called for an appointment, Sharecare representatives will ask for first and last name, date of birth, and email address, and/or phone number; individuals will never be asked to provide their social security number.
At this time the Volusia County Fairgrounds is only vaccinating individuals 65 years of age and older and health care personnel with direct patient contact.
Questions regarding preregistration and appointments should be directed to the state’s helpline at 833-540-2077.
