A new drive-through COVID-19 vaccination site will be open January 12 through 14 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church located half a mile south of the City of Mount Dora. The free vaccines are available to people 65 years old and older, as well as to front line workers on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no residency requirement and no appointments are currently available. Appointments are expected to be available for the second dose.
DOH-Lake is anticipating to have approximately 550 to 750 doses available each day at the Mount Dora area site and will administer vaccines while supplies last for each day. The site will be open this week at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and will remain open until the vaccine supply for that day is administered.
The church campus is large enough to hold the number of vehicles for the amount of vaccines available and then the entrance will be closed. A one to two-and-a-half hour wait in a line should be expected. Face masks are required to be worn in cars.
