MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – The COVID-19 vaccination site for seniors 65 and older at Zoo Miami opens at 8 a.m. Friday.

The zoo is located at 12400 SW 152nd St.

“We will not be testing there. There will be just one way in and one way out,” Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said earlier this week.

The hours of operation are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There are 250 appointments on Friday, 500 appointments on Saturday and 500 appointments on Sunday, according to the mayor’s spokesperson, Rachel Johnson.
