To expand access to COVID-19 vaccinations for all eligible ages, including adolescents 12 through 15, the Health Care District of Palm Beach County will provide walk-up vaccinations next week with one of its mobile units in the parking lot of its Lantana clinic, located at 1250 Southwinds Drive in Lantana. The hours of operation will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, May 17 through Friday, May 21. A parent or guardian must be present at the vaccination appointment of those who are 17 years old and younger.
“As we phase out vaccinations at our mass vaccination sites, the Health Care District is developing strategies to expand access to the COVID-19 vaccine through the targeted use of our mobile clinics,” said Darcy J. Davis, CEO of the Health Care District of Palm Beach County. “Now that the Pfizer vaccine is approved for children as young as 12, we identified our Lantana clinic as an ideal site to serve residents in the community.”
The Health Care District is also offering COVID-19 vaccinations to patients during regular doctor’s office visits at all of the nine C.L. Brumback Primary Care Clinic sites throughout the county, which are located in areas of need. The Health Care District recently reached a milestone by providing more than 200,000 COVID-19 vaccinations in Palm Beach County.
