Fort Pierce Pfizer Vaccination Site UPDATE:

The City of Fort Pierce has been notified by the Florida Department of Emergency Management that all state-managed vaccine and health equity sites will be closing as of June 19, 2021. This will also include the Fort Pierce Recreation Center vaccination site. As of May 25, 2021, 11,436 Pfizer vaccinations have been administered at the Recreation Center. It has been a privilege for the City to have been given the opportunity to offer access to our local citizens and Florida residents. Youth activities will resume when the City regains control of the premises.

The Fort Pierce Recreation Center, located at 903 S. 21st Street, is offering Pfizer vaccines on a first-come, first-serve basis, in partnership with the State of Florida. No appointment or registration is required and hours of operation are from  9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., 7 days a week. 


The City of Fort Pierce encourages all residents and visitors to check all eligibility requirements before arriving at the vaccination site. If all requirements are not met, individuals can expect to be turned away.



Florida Governor Ron DeSantis prioritized Seniors First by executive order to ensure the most vulnerable citizens have access to the vaccine first. The state will expand its eligibility requirements as more vaccines arrive.


Per Executive Order 21-67 (Amending Executive Order 20-315 - Vaccine Administration/Protecting Florida’s Seniors) which states effective Monday, March 22, 2021.


  • Persons 40 years of age and older.
  • Persons determined to be extremely vulnerable by a physician 
  • Health care workers with direct patient contact.
  • Residents and staff of long-term care facilities.
  • K-12 school employees 50 years of age and older.
  • Sworn law enforcement officers 50 years of age and older; and
  • Firefighters 50 years of age and older



Do I need to be a resident of Florida to receive the COVID-19 vaccine?

State Surgeon General Scott Rivkees issued a Public Health Advisory on January 21 prioritizing vaccines for residents of the State of Florida or individuals in Florida for the purpose of providing health care services involving direct contact with patients. To prove residency an adult resident must provide a copy of his or her valid Florida driver license or a copy of a valid Florida identification card.


 Seasonal residents may provide a copy of two of the following to show proof of residential address:

 1. A deed, mortgage, monthly mortgage statement, mortgage payment booklet or residential rental or lease agreement.


2. One proof of residential address from the seasonal resident’s parent, step-parent or legal guardian or other person with whom the seasonal resident resides and a statement from the person with whom the seasonal resident resides stating that the seasonal resident does reside with him or her.


3. A utility hookup or work order dated within 60 days.


4. A utility bill, not more than 2 months old.


5. Mail from a financial institution, including checking, savings, or investment account statements, not more than 2 months old.


6. Mail from a federal, state, county, or municipal government agency, not more than 2 months old.



  I received my first dose in another state and now I am back in Florida, can I receive my second dose in Florida? Yes, just provided your CDC vaccination card and Florida driver’s license or Florida ID and proof that you are a Florida resident.

 Does a person need to have a note from their healthcare provider to prove they are high-risk? 
Yes, there is a form that needs to be filled out with the physician’s information called COVID-19 Determination of Extreme Vulnerability form listed above in the "Eligibility section."

 If my first dose was the Moderna vaccine, can the second dose be Pfizer? No

 Do I need to make an appointment? No. It is first-come, first-serve.

 How long do you need to wait between doses? The time period between the two doses depends on which of the two vaccines you get: Pfizer-BioNTech: The second dose is given 3 weeks after the first dose. Moderna: The second dose is given 4 weeks after the first dose.
