All community members and family members ages 18 and older are welcome. No appointments are needed. A photo ID is required. A second-dose clinic will be scheduled during the week of May 17.

 

Initially organized as a student vaccination event by CARES Outreach Services and New College, the CDC’s recent suspension of the Janssen vaccine initiated a closer partnership with the Sarasota County Health DepartmentHedges Health Mart Pharmacy and New College to offer this clinic.

 

In addition to the COVID-19 vaccine, attendees can get free HIV and Hepatitis C testing, and information about PrEP (a one-pill-a-day regimen that prevents the spread of HIV).
