SMH to Host Special Vaccination Event for People 65 and Older this Weekend

Full Story
SARASOTA (Jan. 6, 2021) – With the COVID-19 vaccine in very short supply locally, Sarasota Memorial Hospital is partnering with the Florida Department of Health (DOH) in Sarasota to administer thousands of COVID-19 vaccinations to community members age 65 and older at a special immunization event taking place this weekend at SMH.

The Florida DOH in Sarasota is committed to disseminating COVID-19 vaccines as soon as we receive the vaccine.

To date, DOH Sarasota has received 5900 doses of COVID-19 vaccine and as of this writing, we have exhausted our current supply. We are expecting an allocation of 3,300 vaccines for next week.

2nd Dose Info:

At the present time, DOH Sarasota is planning to provide second doses as close to the 28-day mark as possible. We will NOT be using our 2200 Ringling location for second dose vaccinations.

Please monitor our DOH Sarasota web page for additional information on the location as we approach those dates.

DOH Sarasota continues to evaluate options for a new reservation system for initial vaccines and second dose appointments.

DOH Sarasota believes we will have these systems in place before your second dose is due.
