Individuals who have been deemed extremely vulnerable need to present the Florida Department of Health form when they arrive at the sites. Individuals who have been deemed extremely vulnerable will NOT be able to receive a vaccine without this form. The form is available here.

The federal site at the Tampa Greyhound Track, located near Waters and Nebraska Avenue, remains open as the main vaccination hub in the Tampa Bay area and continues to vaccinate thousands of people each day.
