MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – There are big changes coming to the COVID-19 vaccination site at Hard Rock Stadium.
Starting Monday, the site will no longer require appointments.
It will also begin a new expanded schedule, opening at 8 a.m. and closing at 10 p.m. seven days a week.
“We’re planning to do 3,000 Pfizer first doses every day, and almost 2,000 second doses every day,” said FEMA spokesperson Mike Jachles.
While an appointment is not necessary for a vaccine at Hard Rock Stadium, those wishing to obtain a shot will need to preregister.
Teenagers 16 or 17 years old can also come to the site to get their Pfizer vaccine, as long as they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and have the proper documentation.
“This is the first site with the expanded hours,” Jachels said.
