A week after the hold on Johnson & Johnson vaccines forced the city of Homestead to cancel last week’s one-day vaccine pop-up, the city will have a three-day vaccine event that’s designed to reach not only Florida residents — but the underserved farmworker community.

Here are the details:

When and Where

Thursday, April 22, through Saturday, April 24, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the FOP Lodge and Harris Field , 675 N. Homestead Blvd.
