The site will transition to a walk-up, indoor clinic; however appointments will still be required.
Second doses will continue at the fairgrounds until May 7th.
Individuals who are scheduled to receive their second dose after May 7th will need to go to the health department in Spring Hill.

At this time, only the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine will be given at the site. DOH-Hernando is asking residents with scheduled appointments to arrive no more than 15 minutes before their scheduled time.
While the health department has been a major provider of COVID-19 vaccination in the community, as vaccine supply increases, a number of pharmacies and doctor’s offices are now available to provide the vaccine.
