As the coronavirus vaccine continues to be distributed across the country, I wanted to make sure you had access to the latest information on how to receive one in our community. Below you will find helpful resources related to the coronavirus vaccine, as well as updates from the Governor’s Office and County Health Departments. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office at 202-225-3026.

*Note: Only permanent and seasonal residents may receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Florida. Only those who can prove state residency using a state driver’s license or other official documents, such as a deed, rental agreement or utility bill, will be permitted to receive shots.

About The Vaccine

The Food and Drug Administration has granted emergency use authorization to two coronavirus vaccines produced by Pfizer and Moderna. Both of these vaccines are more than 95% effective when both doses are administered. Please contact your healthcare provider directly with any questions regarding the vaccine and your personal health.

At this time, the COVID-19 vaccine will only be available to seniors from two sources - hospitals and county health departments. The Martin, St. Lucie and Palm Beach County Health Departments will be offering the vaccine in a way that best fits the needs of each community. Your local county health department will clearly communicate how and when they will be administering the vaccine.

As of December 30, all county health departments have received the vaccine and many have begun vaccinating those 65 and older. Additionally, appointments are being made available to those in this category who wish to receive the vaccine.
