COVID-19 cases are suing in the country, particularly in Florida and among the unvaccinated. According to the the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County (DOH-Pinellas), vaccines remain the single most effective weapon against the virus.
To make getting your COVID-19 vaccine more convenient, DOH-Pinellas sends its outreach team to community locations several times a week.
Anyone 12 and older can receive the Pfizer vaccine. DOH-Pinellas holds outreach events at different locations, but are open to the public without an appointment. Vaccines are free for all.
