Over the past few months, COVID-19 vaccination sites have opened at pharmacies and grocery stores, Miami International Airport, PortMiami, and even Gramps tavern in Wynwood.

Now, the shot is available at Dolphin Mall, too. Yesterday, Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava announced that the county's newest vaccine site will target shoppers and retail workers at the mall.

"Miami-Dade County is working harder than ever to make sure we leave no arm behind and that we make it as easy and convenient as possible to get vaccinated — especially for the workers who power our economy," Levine Cava said in a statement. "We're taking vaccines where the people are — to the port, airport, hotels, malls, restaurants, schools, and businesses across our community." The site is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. You'll find it in the valet area near Cheesecake Factory at Dolphin Mall, 11401 NW 12th St. Appointments are not required, but pre-registering online or by calling 305-614-2014 is recommended. This site offers the two-dose Pfizer vaccine.

Proof of Florida residency is not required at the site, although you will be asked to verbally attest that you live or work in the state.
