Orange County's mobile vaccine operation moves over from Barber Park to a new location at Silver Star Recreation Center for the duration of next week.

The site will run on an appointment-only basis for the first four days - Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. - and on the last day will accept walk-ups all day - Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The vaccine site may close early on a given day if all doses are used.
