Expanded COVID-19 Vaccination Operations Begin Today Brevard County



BREVARD COUNTY, FL.– The Florida Department of Health in Brevard County (FDOH-Brevard), in conjunction with Brevard County Emergency Management, is expanding hours for its COVID-19 vaccination efforts to provide no-appointment-necessary vaccinations at a drive-thru site at 2555 Judge Fran Jamieson Way in Viera beginning at 4 p.m. today, April 15.

To better serve Brevard County residents, the expanded hours will continue from 4-7 p.m. through Tuesday, April 20. No appointment necessary vaccinations will also be provided at the same location this Saturday and Sunday (April 17-18) from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Only first doses of the two-shot Moderna vaccine will be provided during these expanded hours. No appointments will be needed on weekdays between 4-7 p.m. and on weekends from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The no-appointment-necessary expanded hours are drive-through only, and those eligible must be 18 years of age or older.

The state increased the county’s allotment of the vaccine to 8,600 doses to address a backlog on the state COVID-19 vaccination registry. That prompted an operational change that includes expanded hours for no-appointment-necessary vaccinations.  Recent allotments from the state have ranged from 3,500 doses to 4,700 doses of the Moderna vaccine. With the increased allotment, FDOH-Brevard is targeting 650 shots per day for the 4-7 p.m. time slots, and 3,000 doses per day for Saturday and Sunday operations.

The expanded hours are in addition to the first and second doses scheduled during normal 8:15 a.m.-4 p.m. operating hours. If you have an appointment or are called for an appointment, please arrive at your scheduled time.

Please Review the COVID Vaccine Fact Sheetand screening questions on the COVID-19 Vaccine Screening and Consent Form prior to your arrival. Bring a completed COVID-19 Vaccine Screening and Consent Formfor more efficient service.

To see how traffic will flow for the no appointment necessary drive-thru, please visit: https://youtu.be/mwAGlr-Ap1E The no-appointment necessary drive-thru is for first shots only. If you have an appointment during normal vaccination operation hours for a second dose and encounter lines of early arrivals for no-appointment-necessary vaccinations, you will be directed forward to honor your appointment commitment and receive your second dose -- again, as long as you have an appointment for a second dose.
