In hopes of assisting folks to coordinate where they “might” get a corona vaccination as of today, this is the latest information update.
For the latest info available on where one might possibly get vaccinated:
For the process in Palm Beach and Broward:
Broward County will begin giving COVID-19 vaccines to people 65 and older, and those interested can begin scheduling an appointment.
“We are excited about the opportunity to begin vaccinating our senior population, who are disproportionately affected by COVID-19, as we continue to work every day to protect our community during this pandemic,” said Dr. Paula Thaqi, director of the Florida Department of Health in Broward County.
The free vaccines will be available starting Sunday at drive-thru sites. Appointments are required and can be made online at browardcovidvaccine.com.
Anyone who gets the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at one of these sites must also get their second dose 21 days later in Broward County.
Vaccines will be available by appointment only at:
- Tradewinds Park, 3600 W Sample Rd., Coconut Creek. Hours: Sunday-Thursday (Closed Friday, Saturday): 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Vista View Park, 4001 SW 142nd Ave., Davie. Hours: Sunday-Thursday (Closed Friday, Saturday): 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Markham Park, 16001 W State Road 84, Sunrise. Hours: Sunday-Thursday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Broward Health also began distributing COVID-19 vaccines to people 65 and older Wednesday and is no longer accepting appointments. The hospital said it has more than 5,000 appointments scheduled through February.
The Florida Department of Health in Broward County said additional vaccination sites are expected to open and is encouraging everyone to continue checking browardcovidvaccine.com for appointment slots and locations.
The local hospitals, I believe, are gearing up for the public, but they are not being public about it, until it is ready to go. If it is anything like the rollout to first line folks it should be forthcoming. Word of mouth is a good way to find out too.
Memorial Hospital Hollywood seems to be giving them. They may have specific criteria they are following in these early stages.
Due to the complexities of the delivery, storage, and administration of this vaccine it does not look like my office will be administering them.
A hopeful option will be the local medical centers Delray Medical, Boca Regional and West Boca Medical Center. The may be reached at:
