The City of Jacksonville said for two days only, the Clanzel T. Brown Community Center located at 4575 Moncrief Road will be used as a COVID-19 vaccination site.
City leaders said they received enough Pfizer vaccines for 975 first and second doses from the Florida Department of Health to vaccinate those 65 and older, first responders, and medical personnel.
The site will be open on Friday, Feb. 5 and Saturday, Feb. 6 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Mayor Curry said those born between January and June can be vaccinated on Friday, Feb. 5. There will be 500 first doses available.
Those who were born between July and December will receive the vaccine on Saturday, Feb. 6. The city said there will be 475 doses available.

You will need to bring a photo ID and a completed consent form. The form will also be available to fill out at the site if you’re unable to complete it ahead of time.
For those who need a ride to the site, the Jacksonville Transportation Authority said it has direct service to the site via Route 3 – Moncrief.

After receiving the vaccine, patients must stay on site for at least 15 minutes to be monitored for potential reactions by healthcare and emergency professionals. While allergic reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine are rare, this safety measure is in place out of an abundance of caution.
