State-supported immunization site at Lake Square Mall to accept same-day first dose appointments for 3/31

RELEASE DATE: March 31, 2021

Tavares – Due to an error with the scheduling system, Lake County will be accepting same-day vaccine appointments for first doses today from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Appointments are based on vaccine availability.

Vaccinations are limited to the priority population outlined in Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' Executive Order 21-79. This includes individuals 40 and older, healthcare workers with direct patient contact, and long-term care facility residents and staff. In addition, individuals who are deemed by a physician to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 may receive the vaccine by presenting a completed form prescribed by the Florida Department of Health.

The scheduling application is available at https://scheduling.lakecountyfl.gov and will begin accepting appointments today. Residents will need to bring a government-issued ID and proof of Florida residency.
