COVID-19 Vaccination Update 1/22/21

1/22/21: The Town of Ocean Ridge was notified that Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens may have some vaccine available. You may call Hard Rock Café Stadium at 1-888-499-0840 to schedule an appointment. You may read more about it through WPTV 5 by clicking here.

1/21/21: 
The Palm Beach County Health Department has deactivated the chd50feedback@flhealth.gov email appointment system and is not taking any additional names for the time being, until appointments are given to everyone who has already registered (200,000 people).  Please do not email them for an appointment any longer.  If you already emailed them for an appointment, you are in the queue and the Health Care District of Palm Beach County will contact you directly to schedule your appointment.

1/19/21: 
Palm Beach County has notified the Town of an additional COVID-19 vaccine opportunity through Publix Pharmacy for eligible persons.  Appointments can be made on the Publix vaccine website    Update:  1/22/21:  Vaccination appointments through Publix were filled on 1/20, however, they opened more appointments at 6 a.m. on Friday, 1/22/21.  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.

Vaccinations are by online appointment only.  No walk-ins at Publix are allowed for vaccines.  Appointments cannot be scheduled by calling Publix.

Each Publix Pharmacy will be prepared to vaccinate between 100 and 125 residents daily while supplies last, and based on vaccine availability.

Eligibility:  The following persons are eligible to make an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Florida:

  1. Healthcare personnel with direct patient contact;
  2. Residents and staff of long-term care facilities; and
  3. Adults aged 65 years and older.

Restrictions apply.

If you have any questions about the COVID-19 vaccines, please contact your healthcare provider or call the Florida Health COVID-19 24 hour hotline at 1-866-779-6121. You may also visit these websites:

1/21/21: The Town of Ocean Ridge is partnering with the City of Boynton Beach to vaccinate residents age 65 and older through the City of Boynton Beach Fire/EMS Department Closed Point of Distribution (POD).  Please do not call the City of Boynton Beach for information.  Appointments will need to be made for the vaccine clinics via the appointment system on the City of Boynton Beach website once the clinic is open.  They currently DO NOT HAVE ANY VACCINES TO ADMINISTER, so the clinic is closed.  Please visit https://www.boynton-beach.org/news/covid-19-vaccines-boynton-beach for more information on making an appointment once the clinic is opened (we will let you know). Additional/future City of Boynton Beach vaccine clinic dates are to be determined based on supply.  Check the City of Boynton Beach website as listed above for more information.   

1/15/21:  Persons age 65 and older may also request an appointment for COVID-19 vaccines through the Palm Beach County Health Department by emailing chd50feedback@flhealth.gov
Please remember to include your name, phone number, and date of birth in the body of the email.  All emails will be responded to in order of receipt, and Health Department Staff will contact you with further instructions as appointment slots and options become available.  Vaccination appointments are based on dosage availability, which is very limited at this time.  We appreciate your continued patience.  ***No vaccines will be given without an appointment.  Please do not show up at any of our Florida Department of Health locations for a vaccine, or to request an appointment.  Appointments must be made via email as listed above.***
Important:  Please do not send more than one email, as that will further clog the system and make it harder for the Health Department to contact you.

Additional updates on local vaccine distribution will be communicated through http://palmbeach.floridahealth.gov or via Twitter @HealthyFLPBC and local media.  Make sure to speak with your primary care physician to answer any questions you may have about the vaccine before you receive it.

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.  They currently do not have enough supply to meet the demand.  We have 400,000 Seniors in Palm Beach County, and have only been given around 30,000 vaccines as of 1/11/21, with the first vaccines being given to hospital staff and long term care facilities.  They are only receiving around 4,000 vaccines per week and need to fill 100,000 requests as of today (1/11/21).
