DOH-PINELLAS OFFERS VACCINES NEAR YOU FOR GREATER CONVENIENCE
July 29, 2021
As the number of positive COVID-19 cases continue to rise, vaccines remain the single most effective weapon against the virus.
To make getting your COVID-19 vaccine more convenient, the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County (DOH-Pinellas) sends its outreach team to community locations several times a week. As always, vaccines are provided at no cost. Those vaccinated will receive a $10 food voucher. Anyone 12 and older can receive the Pfizer vaccine. Outreach events are held at different locations but are open to the public without appointments required.
Here are some upcoming outreach events to take advantage of:
- Wednesday, Aug. 4: Stop by the Safety Harbor Resort & Spa, 105 N. Bayshore Dr. from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The outreach team will return on Aug. 26 to provide second doses to those who select the Pfizer vaccine.
- Friday, Aug. 6: Visit the renowned Dali Museum Museum, 1 Dali Blvd., St. Petersburg, for your choice of Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson vaccines in its community room from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Those vaccinated will receive a voucher and a shopping tote.
