How to navigate the Orange County Convention Center vaccine site


ORANGE COUNTY, #Fla. – The #Orange #County #Convention #Center which has offered coronavirus testing to tens of thousands of people for months is now also providing the county’s first large-scale vaccine site, causing confusion for some who arrive seeking either tests or the shots.

#To help you navigate the testing site #News 6 drove the route to the convention center and created a detailed map.

#If you are headed to another vaccine site in #Central #Florida outside of the OCCC, this article lists all the current sites in the region.

#Before heading to the convention center for the COVID-19 vaccine there are several things people must do.

1. #As of #Dec. 31, there are currently only three priority groups in #Florida included in this round of COVID-19 vaccines: health care workers, long-term care staff and residents, as well as people 65 and older. #Make sure you meet those qualifications before making an appointment.

2. #You must have an appointment before arriving at the OCCC vaccine site. #Anyone in #Florida can register for this site. #Visit OCFL.net/vaccine to begin that process.

3. #After creating an account the users will get a bar code confirming their account but individuals must still complete the process of selecting a date for both the first and second dose of the vaccine. #Both #Moderna and #Pfizer vaccines require two doses. #After you do that, you should receive a QR code in an email with the date and time of your appointment. #It will look like the example above. #Orange #County has provided step-by-step instructions on how to register here.

4. #With a screenshot or printed version of your QR code as well as a valid ID head to the OCCC vaccine site no more than 30 minutes before your appointment time slot. The address is 9400 #Universal #Boulevard, #Orlando.

#People are asked to have a full tank of gas, as well as any food or water. #Wait times may be longer than one hour. #Orange #County #Department of #Health spokesperson #Kent #Donahue said the goal is to get the wait time down to under an hour.

#Direction to the vaccine site line

#Once arriving in the area of the convention center you will follow signs leading along the route to the #North #Concourse for vaccines. The site is close to the entrance of the OCCC. COVID-19 testing is located in the #Destination #Parkway #Garage.

#News 6 drove the route to the site going west on the #Beachline #Expressway from I-4 to the #International #Drive exit. #Take the #International #Drive exit going north then follow that all the way to #Convention #Way where you take a right going north but instead of going into the vaccine site you go all the way to #Universal #Boulevard going east and turn into the entrance for the vaccine line.

#Watch the videos below for details navigating to the site:

#Are there bathrooms while you wait?

#Yes, according to the county, there are portalets and washing stations in the vaccine waiting line, as well as in the observation area after vaccinations are administered.

#After you get your shot

There is an area where you can wait for about 15 minutes after getting the vaccine in case of any adverse symptoms.
