The Department of Health in Palm Beach County will provide a small number of COVID-19 vaccine doses to Delray Beach Fire Rescue for administration to those 65-and-older this week. Though the number of doses is limited to 200, it is likely the first in a series for DBFR to administer to the general public.
Those interested in making appointments to receive the vaccines in Highland Beach will be able to register at 2 p.m. Thursday at the following link: https://DelrayBeachVaccine.as.me/HighlandBeach
Registrants will follow the prompts to choose an appointment time on Friday and submit their identifying information.
A confirmation email will provide each successful registrant with the time and location of his or her appointment, general instructions, as well as a link to a vaccine consent form that must be completed and brought with them to the appointment.
“It is the goal of Delray Beach Fire Rescue to help get this vaccine to as many people as possible to put an end to COVID-19 pandemic,” Fire Chief Keith Tomey said.
- Do not make an appointment if you currently have COVID-19 symptoms.
- The appointment link will not be active until 2 p.m.
- Vaccines will not be administered without an appointment, and the link is the only method to make an appointment.
- Registrants must be 65 or older and must bring valid identification with them to the appointment.
Any questions about the vaccine should be addressed to individual healthcare providers.
