The Village of Key Biscayne is continuing to host vaccination pop-ups to offer residents free, easy access to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
The next confirmed dates are:
- Sept. 10 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. by Statlab

The vaccination site will be located inside the Key Biscayne Community Center, 10 Village Green Way.
No appointment is needed, this is a walk-up location offering Pfizer vaccines. The Pfizer vaccine (two doses) will be administered to patients 12 years old and older.
Please note that after receiving the vaccine, patients will be asked to stay under observation for 15 minutes.
Regarding the third vaccine dose:
- Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending that only individuals who are moderately to severely immunocompromised receive an additional dose. Please refer to the CDC's COVID-19 Vaccines for Moderately to Severely Immunocompromised guidance for further information.
- The federal government has announced that the third dose will be rolled out nationwide beginning Sept. 20. For more information, visit the White House fact sheet.
Some vaccine providers have begun accepting immunocompromised patients for the third dose on the honor system. That is, anyone who self-identifies as being immunocompromised can receive the third dose at those locations. Please note that as of this week (8/30) the CDC says more evidence is needed before they will give a booster recommendation.
