SARASOTA, Fla. — There will be a drive-through COVID-19 vaccination event this weekend at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall in Sarasota.

According to a spokesperson for the Department of Health, workers will give out approximately 4,000 doses between Saturday and Sunday.

This is not a special allotment of vaccines. These are part of the regular shipments DOH receives each week.

Appointments will be scheduled via the county's standby list for those who were previously registered through the Everbridge system. 

No walk-ups will be accepted and those without appointments are asked to avoid the area. 

Those who have a confirmed appointment will access the facility’s parking lot from the 10th Street entrance. You will be directed to the check-in area.

You will need to bring a completed vaccine screening and consent form and a valid ID or proof of Florida residency.
