 Palm Beach County COVID-19 Vaccination Planning

Governor Ron DeSantis has signed Executive Order 20-315 ​which outlines 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.
  • Persons deemed to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 by hospital providers.
COVID-19 vaccination
 
 

County staff are working closely with the Department of Health Palm Beach County and the Health Care District of Palm Beach County to complete the strategies for our local efforts to distribute the vaccine in accordance with the Governor's priorities.  Our local efforts will be in addition to the direct rollouts of the vaccine by the State of Florida or direct deliveries by federal agencies or contractors. Our strategies will include designated PODs (points of distribution) at both fixed and mobile locations that will be accessible by walk-up and/or drive-up.  The plans for these operations are being finalized with incremental startups expected early in January. 

Details of the local distribution plans are still being worked out and the timing of operations is dependent upon the supply and distribution of the vaccine by the Florida Departm​ent of Health, the Florida Division of Emergency Management and the County Health Department.  Local distribution plans do not include nursing home and long-term care facilities which are being handled at the federal and state level. Additional announcements specific to public distribution within the County will be forthcoming from the County Health Department and the Palm Beach County Division of Emergency Management. ​​
