TAMPA, FL – To make the vaccine readily available to those who want it before the eligibility for the vaccine expands on Monday, the city of Tampa will host pop-up vaccine clinics throughout the area throughout the weekend.
On Saturday, the lines formed in Curtis Hickson Park two hours before the site had to be opened, as it is not necessary to prescribe the vaccine in pop-up clinics.
