Vaccinations Update

There is an expansion of vaccinations sites available. Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings is expanding vaccination eligibility at the Convention Center site to include UCF employees, not just faculty.

“Orange Mayor Jerry Demings confirmed that professors and others who work on college campuses could now get vaccinated at the county site, a departure from Gov. Ron DeSantis’ current executive order laying out eligibility rules, which currently makes no mention of college staff and only authorizes vaccination for K-12 school employees older than 50….Demings said his staff communicated his decision to expand access at the Orange County Convention Center site to the Florida Department of Emergency Management and was told the state wouldn’t interfere if the county legal department deemed it OK.”

Information on the Orange County Convention Center Vaccination site is here.

Address: OCCC North Concourse
9400 Universal Blvd Orlando, FL 32819

A map to the vaccination site is here.

Don’t forget you can also get vaccinated at the FEMA Valencia West site with a UCF ID.
