Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) vaccination site has been relocated north on campus to a facility at 674 Gamble Street.
Other than the location, the operation remains unchanged, said Director of Student Health Services Tanya Tatum. Staff at the site, formerly located at the Al Lawson Jr. Gymnasium and Multipurpose Center administered more than 14,000 doses of vaccine since it opened in February. The new location is the old Office of Equal Opportunity Programs, but it could be temporary.
“We are starting to see more people coming in for vaccinations, so we are looking for a larger space,” Tatum said. This week, staff has been seeing 90-95 people a day getting vaccinated, which is double the numbers before the latest spike.
The site offers the Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday. No preregistration or appointment is required.
Meanwhile, the Bragg Memorial Stadium COVID-19 testing site remains open as demand for tests increases along with the spread of the highly contagious Delta variant. Testing is conducted 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Tests are free and no registration or appointments are required.
As of Tuesday, August 3, 389,408 tests have been conducted at the site. Of the 2,529 individuals who took rapid tests on Tuesday, 16.46 percent tested positive for COVID-19.
