Hard Rock Stadium is the first state-run testing site to be converted into a vaccine site. The site will continue to provide COVID-19 testing while offering COVID-19 vaccinations.
While there was a soft opening of the vaccination site at the stadium this week, it became fully operational on Friday.
What To Expect?
Once arriving at the site, individuals will be directed to a separate lane to receive the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Once an individual is in the appropriate lane, they will provide contact information so the state can work with them on arranging a time to receive their second dose.
All individuals are encouraged to bring a government-issued form of identification and health insurance information to the site.
The government-issued ID does not need to be a Florida Driver’s License.
