BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Florida Department of Health in Brevard County (FDOH-Brevard), in conjunction with Brevard County Emergency Management, will expand hours for its COVID-19 vaccination efforts to provide no-appointment-necessary vaccinations at a drive-through site at 2555 Judge Fran Jamieson Way in Viera beginning at 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 15.
To better serve Brevard County residents, the expanded hours will continue from 4 to 7 p.m. through Tuesday, April 20. No appointment necessary vaccinations will also be provided at the same location this Saturday and Sunday (April 17-18) from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Only first doses of the two-shot Moderna vaccine will be provided during these expanded hours.
No appointments will be needed on weekdays between 4 to 7 p.m. and on weekends from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The no-appointment-necessary expanded hours are drive-through only.
The state increased the county’s allotment of the vaccine to 8,600 doses to address a backlog on the state COVID-19 vaccination registry. That prompted an operational change that includes expanded hours for no-appointment-necessary vaccinations.
Recent allotments from the state have ranged from 3,500 doses to 4,700 doses of the Moderna vaccine.
With the increased allotment, FDOH-Brevard is targeting 650 shots per day for the 4-7 p.m. time slots, and 3,000 doses per day for Saturday and Sunday operations.
The expanded hours are in addition to the first and second doses scheduled during normal 8:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. operating hours. If you have an appointment or are called for an appointment, please arrive at your scheduled time.
Please Review the COVID Vaccine Fact Sheet and screening questions on the COVID-19 Vaccine Screening and Consent Form prior to your arrival. Bring a completed COVID-19 Vaccine Screening and Consent Form for more efficient service.
