COVID VACCINE INFORMATION
1. 67 Publix pharmacies in PBC are offering vaccinations. Online sign-ups are scheduled for Wednesday and Friday mornings, beginning at 7:00 am: www.publix.com/covid-vaccine. As many as four people may be registered at one time. These locations will receive vaccine directly from the federal government and will not count against the DOH weekly shipment.
Publix customer support (for questions, NOT registration): 800-242-1227.
2. VA will vaccinate vets who are 65 and older, IF they meet financial guidelines. These guidelines are established by the VA.
3. Jupiter Medical Center will vaccinate persons between 16 - 65 with serious medical conditions. The physician must be affiliated with Jupiter Medical Center. As of today, the hospital has NO VACCINE available due to the weather conditions preventing distribution. Once Jupiter Medical Center has received more vaccines, persons who are extremely vulnerable should contact their physician (NOT THE HOSPITAL) and request that the doctor submit their name to the hospital for an appointment.
JFK will begin offering vaccines to persons under 65, with serious medical conditions. Start date may be postponed from this week, due to weather conditions. NO further information is available at this time, regarding JFK registration.
4. PBC Health Care District continues to schedule vaccinations for those who previously signed up, using the (now defunct) firstname.lastname@example.org. Emails have been sent recently to all who previously registered on this site, to determine how many still want/need their vaccine. The site will be re-opened, when the current list is almost exhausted, depending on vaccine availability.
5. The state will continue to target underserved areas and faith-based community sites with state strike teams.
6. PBC is developing plans for servicing homebound residents.
7. Lists of community PODs, which made requests for mobile units in their communities, are being maintained. Availability of vaccine will determine when/where these PODs can offer the vaccine. Plans are being made for a website for POD registration, for those interested, but have not already signed up.

Who We Are
The West Boca Community Council is an umbrella organization of more than 200 homeowner and condominium member associations who elect the Council’s Board of Directors every April. Absent any local government of our own, the Council serves as the voice for West Boca with the governments of Palm Beach County and the State of Florida. It was founded in 1980 to fight for quality of life issues. More than forty years later, that remains our raison d'etre.
