According to a news release, a specially-equipped, air-conditioned transit bus will be stationed in an East Beach parking lot, in the 15400-block of Marine Drive, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – or until supplies run out – to provide eligible people aged 12 and older with first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
