If you’ve put off getting your or your family’s Covid-19 vaccine because of the confusion or hassle of scheduling, the Westchase Community Association (WCA) has your solution.
The Westchase association is graciously hosting a walk-in vaccination clinic at the Westchase Swim and Tennis Center on Saturday, April 24. No prior registration or scheduling is required. Simply drop in, get vaccinated and be on your way until your second dose.
“When the opportunity was first presented, I thought it would be a great idea to bring it to the community,” said WCA President Shawn Yesner. “We’re excited to offer this opportunity to residents and others to have a place close by where they can protect themselves and their family members and help put an end to Covid-19.”
At the walk-in clinic the Pfizer vaccine will be distributed for free to anyone 16 and older from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. with the second dose administered on May 15 at the Westchase Swim and Tennis Center from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The clinic is open to residents of Westchase and the surrounding area. The Westchase Swim and Tennis Center is located at 10405 Countryway Blvd., Tampa, FL 33626.
The clinic staff will include Dr. Dexter Fredrick of Bay Discount Pharmacy, four registered nurses, three registrars and volunteers to monitor the observation area and the flow of traffic.
Florida residency is required. Individuals who are 16 or 17 may get vaccinated with consent of their parent/legal guardian, who must accompany them during vaccination administration. Please fill out and bring the following vaccine screening and consent form with you to the drop-in clinic. You can download it here: doh-covid-vaccine-screening-consent-form.
Volunteers are needed to fill shift of two hours or greater for the vaccine clinic.

Volunteers are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to their shift for training and to ensure no gaps in volunteer coverage.
