Orange County Convention Center expands vaccines to all law enforcement, corrections, fire department employees

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — The Orange County Convention Center is expanding its eligibility once again.

Now, all employees who work for local law enforcement agencies, corrections departments or fire departments can get vaccinated there.

Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings said he personally asked the state for permission on Friday, and was granted that permission on Monday.

The group is only able to get vaccinated at the convention center site, not other sites in Orange County.

The convention center has appointments available this week and next. Click here to register.

Demings said the next group will likely include other essential workers, but he’s not sure when that will be.

Many theme park employees said the governor and Demings should put them next in line to get vaccinated.

DeSantis said he’s not doing vaccine changes by occupation anymore, but Demings has been making some special requests to get certain jobs covered.
