Orange County Public Schools to host additional COVID-19 clinics

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Following a successful start, Orange County Public Schools will continue hosting COVID-19 vaccine clinics at its high schools throughout the holiday season.

OCPS high schools will again open their doors for vaccine clinics the week after Thanksgiving, the district said. This will allow those who received their first shot last week to return to the same location for their second.
