The federally supported vaccination pop-ups in North Miami Beach and Miami Springs have moved to Liberty City and Cutler Bay again. This time, it’s to administer second doses only.

The “satellite” sites open Thursday, April 8, at Charles Hadley Park, 1350 NW 50th St. in Liberty City and at South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center, 10950 SW 211th St. in Cutler Bay.

Both sites are giving second-dose Pfizer shots and will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through April 13. Cutler Bay’s location will be closed on Sunday, April 11.

Then the pop-ups will end their run. The sites were part of a federal and state partnership to expand vaccine access in underserved communities.

Previously, the sites were at Allen Park Community Center in North Miami Beach and at the Miami Springs Community Center.

What to know about second doses at FEMA satellite sites

Only second-dose Pfizer shots will be available at the two pop-ups.

You will need to show your CDC vaccination card and a state-issued ID, such as a driver’s license, to get your second shot.

You should not get your second dose before the date on your vaccination card, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

People who get their first Pfizer shot at a FEMA site can switch among the three FEMA vaccine centers in Miami-Dade for their second dose.
