COMMUNITY TASK FORCE MONITORING OPIOID USE IN PINELLAS NOTES AN INCREASE IN ER VISITS

Full Story
During April 4-10, the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County (DOH-Pinellas) and its partners in the Pinellas County Opioid Task Force observed an alarming increase in non-fatal overdose encounters at emergency departments in the county.

Greater availability of vaccines in the community is ramping down operations at larger county COVID-19 sites

To make COVID-19 vaccinations more accessible to all Pinellas residents, large sites in St. Petersburg, Pinellas Park and Largo had been providing thousands of vaccines a week with assistance from the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County (DOH-Pinellas) and partners in the county’s firefighting/EMS agencies.

Now that vaccines are widely available at pharmacies and other community locations, the larger sites will begin consolidating operations in May.
