Two recent vaccination events in Marion County brought an extra 6,500 vaccines to the area in a push to cover a higher percentage of the area’s residents age 65 and older. The events were both drive-throughs allowing those with vaccination appoints to get their shots without leaving their vehicles. The first was held at the Circle Square Cultural Center at On Top of the World. The second moved the operation to the Florida Agriculture Center and Horse Park. The shot caravan will return to give residents their second dose in about a month. [Bruce Ackerman/Ocala Gazette]
