PALM BEACH COUNTY COVID-19 VACCINATION PLANNING

Pursuant to direction from Governor Ron DeSantis, the Florida Department of Health and local health departments are responsible for receipt and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine on behalf of the State.  Initial priorities for distribution were recently redefined in the Governor’s Executive Order 20-315: health care personnel; individuals 65 years of age and older; and long-term care facility residents and staff.

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 Department 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.
