The City of Sarasota will host a drive-through, second-dose Covid-19 vaccination clinic this Saturday and Sunday, March 27-28, at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. The clinic will be by appointment only for individuals who received their first dose Feb. 27-28 at the city-hosted vaccine distribution at the Van Wezel. Appointment notices are now being issued via the Everbridge system, Sarasota County’s first-come, first-serve vaccination standby list.
Individuals who have confirmed appointments for the clinic at the Van Wezel, 777 N. Tamiami Trail, can access the facility’s parking lot through the 10th Street entrance during their scheduled appointment block and will be directed to the check-in area. Drivers should again bring their completed vaccine screening and consent form and a valid ID or proof of Florida residency. No walk-ups will be accepted at the drive-through clinic. Individuals who are ill or who have tested positive for Covid-19 should not come to the site. For questions and more information on registration or your Everbridge account number, contact the Sarasota County vaccine registration call center at 941-861-VAXS (8297). The call center is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday.
