Health Care District Offers Walk-up COVID-19 Vaccinations in Downtown West Palm Beach
Starting tonight, visitors to downtown West Palm Beach will have a new experience to consider: getting a COVID-19 shot. The Health Care District of Palm Beach County is expanding access to COVID-19 vaccinations countywide by rolling out a mobile clinic to popular entertainment areas and events.
“We’re making it convenient for people who have not yet been vaccinated, including adolescents who are now eligible,” said Darcy J. Davis, Chief Executive Officer of the Health Care District of Palm Beach County. “With our mobile clinic parked downtown, visitors can receive a vaccination on their way to dinner.”
The Health Care District teamed up with the City of West Palm Beach and Palm Beach County to offer free, walk-up COVID-19 vaccines through this Sunday. City of West Palm Beach Firefighters will serve as vaccinators. The Health Care District’s mobile clinic will be parked on Datura Street, east of South Narcissus Avenue on:
• Thursday, May 13th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (Johnson & Johnson vaccine)
• Friday, May 14th from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. (Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccine)
• Saturday, May 15th from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. (Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccine)
• Sunday, May 16th from noon to 7 p.m. (Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccine)
On Saturday, May 15th the Health Care District will also offer COVID-19 vaccinations along the 500 block of Clematis Street from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. A parent or guardian must be present at the time of vaccination for anyone between the ages of 12 and 17.
The Health Care District is taking its vaccination outreach efforts on the road as operations wind down at the three mass vaccination sites in the northern, central and southern parts of the county. To date, the Health Care District has provided over 200,000 COVID-19 vaccinations countywide. Over four days last Friday through this Monday, the Health Care District vaccinated 170 people with its mobile clinic at the South Florida Fair. Next week, the Health Care District will provide walk-up vaccinations with one of its mobile units in the parking lot of its Lantana clinic located at 1250 Southwinds Drive in Lantana, Florida. The hours of operation will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. next Monday, May 17th through Friday, May 21st, 2021.
The Health Care District is also offering COVID-19 vaccinations to patients during regular doctors’ office visits at all of the nine C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinic sites across the county, which are located in areas of need. Appointments at the clinics can be made by calling 561-642-1000.
