The Federal Strike Team has opened a COVID-19 vaccination site at the Miami-Dade Community College located at 11380 NW 27th Ave, Miami, FL 33167. They will be open 7 days per week from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and will be administering approximately 2,000 vaccines per day to those who are eligible as outlined in the Governor's Executive Order. This is a walk-up site and no appointment is necessary. Please note that if you choose to receive your first vaccination through this site, you must receive your second dose there as well.

The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) has released a pre-registration website for eligible Florida residents to register for vaccines at https://myvaccine.fl.gov/ Individuals can pre-register for vaccine appointments and be notified when appointments are available in their area. "As we await additional vaccine supply from the Federal Government, we urge currently eligible Florida residents to save their place in line by pre-registering today", according to the FDOH website. Additionally, as part of the statewide registration system, each County has a designated phone number that individuals can call and pre-register if they do not have Internet access. The number for Palm Beach County residents is 1-866-201-6754. TTY number for hearing impaired: 1-833-476-1532.
Publix is providing COVID-19 vaccinations by appointment only. Appointments can be made on the Publix vaccine website
Check back on their vaccine website regularly in the early morning hours for more appointment opportunities. Please be patient, as appointment slots will only be opened once vaccines are received by the State, and that supply is very limited at this time. Vaccinations are by online appointment only. No walk-ins at Publix are allowed for vaccines. Appointments cannot be scheduled by calling Publix.

The Palm Beach County Health Department is asking for everyone's patience, as they currently have an extremely low volume of vaccines to administer that have been released to Palm Beach County from the State. We have 400,000 Seniors in Palm Beach County, and they currently do not have enough supply to meet the demand.
