INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. — Officials in Indian River County announced a mass vaccination site located at the fairgrounds will close Friday.

The Florida Department of Health in Indian River County and Indian River County Emergency Services made the announcement Wednesday morning.

The health department said they will begin operating on a walk-in basis for COVID-19 immunizations starting May 5.

Immunizations will be offered Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Walk-in immunizations will not be available on May 11.

The Florida Department of Health in Indian River County is located at 1900 27th St. in Vero Beach.
