Palm Beach County Commissioner Robert S Weinroth has been advised the Health Care District of Palm Beach County is launching a program to provide the COVID Vaccine to individuals covered by the Executive Order issued by Governor Ron DeSantis.
On December 23, 2020, Governor DeSantis signed Executive Order 20-315 which outlined that providers can only administer the COVID-19 vaccine to the following groups:
- Long-term care facility residents and staff;
- Persons 65 years of age and older;
- Health care personnel with direct patient contact; and
- Persons deemed to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 by hospital providers.
At the present time, the Health Care District is only accepting requests for vaccination, per the Governor’s Order, for people 65 and older and who previously sent an email request to the Florida Department of Health (FDOH).
If you do not meet this criteria, your request will not be retained in their system. However, as the state moves through the next phases of vaccination rollout, additional people will be eligible to re-register.
If you are 65 and older, and have already sent an email to the FDOH at CHD50Feedback@FLHealth.org and would like to schedule an appointment, please click here and complete the request form. This will place you in a virtual waiting room until vaccines become available.
