Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine is available to people 65 years and older on a first-come, first-served basis at a drive-through event on Jan. 4 and 5, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Daytona Stadium, 3917 LPGA Blvd. in Daytona Beach. The vaccines are provided by the Florida Department of Health in Volusia County (DOH-Volusia) in partnership with the City of Daytona Beach.
Vaccinations will be offered at no cost and photo IDs will be required. After receiving a vaccination, recipients will be required to remain on site for 15-30 minutes for medical monitoring.
Only the Moderna vaccine will be provided at this initial community vaccination event. Prior to receiving a vaccination, individuals will receive the Moderna Fact Sheet on the Emergency Use Authorization and information on what to expect during and after the injection. Individuals also will be required to complete a medical screening form and sign an informed consent form before receiving a vaccination.
Individuals are encouraged to contact their primary care provider with questions about whether they should receive the vaccine before presenting to a vaccination site.
Each person will receive a 2nd dose reminder card that lists the date and the manufacturer for the first vaccination. The Moderna booster vaccination should be received 28 days after the initial dose. The second dose must be from the same manufacturer as the first vaccine.
DOH-Volusia will return to this location in 28 days to offer the second dose to those who are due. Future vaccination dates in several locations across the county will be based on vaccine availability. Information also will be posted online at www.volusia.org/coronavirus.
