“Due to the decrease in demand for COVID-19 vaccines and the communitywide availability, the COVID-19 vaccine center will close for vaccine administration and transition back to the FDOH-Santa Rosa," said Sandra Park-O'Hara, administrator for the FDOH in Santa Rosa County.

For appointment locations and times beginning July 6, call FDOH-Santa Rosa at 850-983-5200 and select the option for scheduling COVID-19 vaccines. 

FDOH-Santa Rosa currently administers the Moderna vaccine approved for those 18 and older.
