Health Care District/Palm Beach County Vaccination Information

The Health Care District of Palm Beach County, in partnership with Palm Beach County, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue and the State of Florida, is now administering COVID-19 vaccines throughout the county.

 

At the present time, we are only accepting requests for vaccination per the Governor’s order for people 65 and older. If you do not meet this criteria, your request will not be retained in our system. However, as our state moves through the next phases of vaccination rollout, please visit this page when you are eligible to re-register. Residents 65 or older who want to get vaccinated at one of the Health Care District’s vaccination sites needs to go to vaccine.hcdpbc.org and complete the appointment request form.

 

*NEW* Helix Virtual Medicine Partners With Palm Beach International Airport to Offer COVID-19 Testing

Beginning today, the testing will be available in Helix Virtual Medicine’s clinic located on the second level of the terminal near Concourse C. The clinic will provide passengers with results needed to comply with new pandemic-related travel requirements. Testing is available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and on Sunday. Passengers must schedule an appointment for testing. Test results will be available to passengers within 24 to 48 hours for the standard PCR test. Patients will receive rapid test results in 30 minutes or less.

 

Passengers with proof of travel can take a PCR test for $125. Travelers can be tested at the airport in the days leading up to their travel or after they disembark from a plane, and can bill their insurance for reimbursement.

 

On-site COVID-19 testing is meant for passengers traveling to and from PBI. Travelers should plan ahead to make sure they obtain the right kind of test for their needs, and allow adequate time for processing – usually three days before travel to destinations where a negative PCR test result is necessary.

 

Appointments for COVID-19 tests can be made at helixvm.com.

 

*NEW* crisis counseling health services

The Florida Department of Children and Families has launched www.turnto211.com, a new website that provides access to crisis counseling health services. This site contains useful links, helplines, and tips for coping with traumatic events. COVID-19 has affected everyone. 211 is here to help when you do not know where to turn or you just need a friendly, listening ear.
