The State Department of Health through Chuck Henry requested assistance via a resource request to identify and procure a centrally located indoor space for the purpose of providing vaccines. Over the past week, county staff has worked in close coordination with the DOH in the development and execution of a lease for space at Sarasota Square Mall for this purpose. Both first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccines will begin starting tomorrow from this location. This provides a secure and accessible location for those appropriately registered to receive the vaccine. DOH will staff the location and the hours of operation will vary as deemed necessary.
Staff is in the process of advising those registered that the vaccines will be administered at the mall site beginning Thursday, January 28.
