GAINESVILLE ‒ Local residents can get a free COVID vaccination and a $25 gift card at a clinic scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 26, from noon to 4 p.m. Participants can walk up or drive through to get their vaccinations at the clinic, which will be held at Oak Tree Early Learning Academy at 1414 N.E. 23rd Avenue in Gainesville.

No registration is needed, but a photo ID is required to receive a vaccination.

Free COVID rapid testing will also be available at the clinic.

Alachua County School Board Vice-Chair Tina Certain is spearheading the event. “We are strongly encouraging our citizens to get the vaccine to protect themselves and their families,” she said.

The University of Florida College of Medicine’s Mobile Outreach Clinic will administer doses of the Pfizer vaccine to people 12 and older in cooperation with the Alachua County Health Department. Precyse Coding Solutions will provide the rapid COVID-19 tests.
