Walt Disney World is helping the drive to increase numbers of COVID-19 vaccinations by offering a Friends and Family vaccination event for its Florida based Cast Members later this month.

The event taking place on May 22 - 23 will allow Cast Members to bring along up to 5 friends and family members for a vaccination. Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson shots are on offer, and walk-ups are welcome. Pfizer is also available for ages 12+ at the event.

Vaccinations are taking place at Walt Disney World Health Services on Backstage Lane, and company ID is required along with ID for each adult guest.

Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings has said earlier this week that the county is nearing the level of vaccinations needed to eliminate the mask mandate when outdoors.

Mayor Demings announced late in April that when 50% of the population 16+ has been vaccinated, the facial covering mandate will be lifted for all individuals outdoors. When 70% of the population 16+ has received their first dose of the vaccine and/or Orange County's 14-day rolling positivity rate is 5% or below, all mandates will be lifted.
