COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution — Update

State of Florida & Palm Beach County Begin COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

On December 23, 2020, Governor DeSantis issued Executive Order 20-315, which identifies the following populations that will receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the first phase:

  • Long-term care facility residents and staff;
  • Persons 65 years of age and older; and
  • Health care personnel with direct patient contact.

The supply of COVID-19 vaccines is currently very limited, and Palm Beach County Administration is working closely with Florida Health – Palm Beach County on the distribution plan.

At this time appointments through the Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County (DOH-Palm Beach), should only be requested by sending an email to chd50feedback@flhealth.gov.

Please remember to include your name, phone number, and date of birth. All emails are being received and will be contacted in order with further instructions as appointments slots and options become available. Vaccination appointments are based on dosage availability, we appreciate your continued patience.

***No vaccines will be given without an appointment. Please do not show up at any of our Florida Department of Health locations for a vaccine, or to request an appointment. This should be done by email only at this time.*

Additional information can be obtained from the state by texting “FLCOVID19” to 888777. The Florida Health COVID Call Center can be reached by calling 1-866-779-6121 or emailing COVID-19@flhealth.gov and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Additional updates on local vaccine distribution will be communicated through the Town’s website: www.highlandbeach.us, palmbeach.floridahealth.gov, twitter account @HealthyFLPBC, and local media.
