Two LGBTQ+ organizations in Orlando will offer free Johnson & Johnson vaccine shots as well as HIV, Hepatitis C, and other STI testing on Friday.

The event, which will run from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at 946 N. Mills Ave., was possible due to a partnership between The Center, an organization with the mission to empower the LGBTQ+ community in Orlando, and Harmony Healthcare Orlando, an organization seeking to ensure sexual health among Central Floridians.



Although attendees must be 18 and older to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, STI testing is available for everyone 13 and older.

No reservation is required, but visitors must bring an ID with them.
