COVID-19 Vaccine, where can you get it in Palm Beach County?

An advisory pane to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) voted to recommend a third COVID-19 vaccine for immunocompromised individuals, and the agency’s director signed off on that recommendation.

Immunocompromised individuals can begin receiving the shots immediately. Mixing of mRNA vaccines is permitted for the third shot if their original vaccine is not available. Patients will not need a prescription or the signoff of a healthcare provider in order to prove they are immunocompromised and receive the additional dose, according to officials

On Wednesday, August 18, 2021, Gov. Ron DeSantis was in Palm Beach County to announce a new site for people who have tested positive for COVID-19, or who may have other risk factors associated with COVID-19 and would like to receive the monoclonal antibody treatments.
