La Primavera Supermarket in Sarasota will host a free COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Saturday, Aug. 21, in partnership with the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County, the City of Sarasota and The Mallard Law Firm, the city announced this week.

The walk-up clinic will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 21 at La Primavera, which is located at 901 N. Washington Blvd., a city news release says. “The Pfizer vaccine will be available to individuals age 12 and older. No appointments are necessary. Bilingual Spanish speakers will be on site to help coordinate the event,” the release adds.

“In an effort to increase the vaccination rate in our Hispanic community we’re building creative partnerships to overcome lingering access and hesitancy issues,” said Sarasota Mayor Hagen Brody in the release. “Enlisting trusted community institutions like La Primavera in our vaccination efforts is a natural step towards stopping the spread of COVID-19,” Brody added in the release.
