Sarasota – Beginning Saturday, May 8th DOH Sarasota will consolidate the first and second dose COVID-19 vaccination clinics at Sarasota Square Mall into one single clinic for adults 18 and older.  Both first and second doses will be available without appointments.  

According to Chuck Henry, Administrator DOH Sarasota, everyone who registered in our Everbridge COVID -19 registration system to receive a vaccine should have now received a second dose notice. With COVID -19 vaccine readily available in our community, we are now able to focus our efforts on conducting pop-up vaccination events around the county.

DOH - Sarasota operates a no-appointment necessary walk-in COVID 19 vaccination clinic using Moderna vaccine at Sarasota Square Mall located at 8201 S. Tamiami Trail for adults 18 and older Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Everyone receiving a vaccine must present a valid ID, a signed consent form and be ready for the 15-minute wait after receiving your vaccine. Individuals walking up for their first dose are asked to return to the same location 28 days later to receive their second dose, as they will not receive a second-dose appointment reminder.
