Metropolis officers hope to vaccinate 1,000 Jacksonville residents a day

JACKSONVILLE, Fla – There has been a full week of vaccinations at the Mandarin and Lane Wiley senior centers, and the recordings will continue on Saturday.

Duval County residents 65 years old and on the front lines cannot be vaccinated by appointment but by the month they are born. Those with birthdays in November or December can get admission to any senior center on Saturday.

A dozen seniors were queuing at 5:30 a.m., although the city told people not to line up until 10 a.m.

The Mandarin and Lane Wiley Senior Centers will be open 11am to 7pm today or until they run out of shots for the day.

The city says the Lane Wiley and Mandarin senior centers have reached capacity every day so far this week. Between the two locations, the city hopes to be able to vaccinate almost 1,000 people a day.

The Mandarin facility will provide 500 vaccines per day, while up to 475 vaccines will be distributed in Lane Wiley according to official figures. Ask the City of Jacksonville to wear your mask, bring your photo ID, and the screening consent form.

If recordings run out for that day, attendees will have the option to return the following week on their allotted day or to schedule an appointment at the Prime Osborne Convention Center.
