County Vaccination Schedule for Week of April 19 Includes Location in Progress Village

Hillsborough County, Fla. (April 16, 2021) - Appointments are now being accepted for first doses of the COVID-19 coronavirus vaccinations to be dispensed the week of April 19 at three Hillsborough County public vaccination sites. This includes a new County-run site in Progress Village, south of Causeway Boulevard and west of Interstate 75.

In an effort to continue bringing the vaccine to a variety of locations throughout the county, shots will be offered April 21-23 at the Larry Sanders Sports Complex, 5855 S. 78th St. in the Progress Village area. It will be a drive-thru location; individuals will remain in their vehicles throughout the entire process.

First doses will be dispensed April 19-23 at the Ed Radice Sports Complex (drive-thru), 14720 Ed Radice Drive in Tampa, and Vance Vogel Sports Complex (drive-thru), 13012 Bullfrog Creek Road in Gibsonton.

As a reminder, appointments are mandatory. Persons without appointments will not receive a vaccine and will be turned away. Florida residency is required. To make an appointment, go to the CDR Health Pro portal at patientportalfl.com.

It takes only a few minutes to create an account and select an appointment. The registration process is simple and easy, and same-week appointments are often available.

Vaccine eligibility statewide has expanded to all Floridians as prescribed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Sites run by Hillsborough County dispense only the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, which can be given to individuals 16 years of age and older.

There is no out-of-pocket cost to be vaccinated. A doctor's note or prescription is not required. Health insurance information is being collected in accordance with federal guidance; however, you will not be asked to pay a copay or deductible. Individuals who do not have health insurance will still be vaccinated.
