Florida Health in Flagler and City of Palm Coast Partner to Encourage COVID-19 Vaccinations
May 04, 2021
To stop the spread of COVID-19 in Flagler County, the Flagler County Health Department (DOH-Flagler) and City of Palm Coast are once again partnering to bring a weekly vaccination clinic to Palm Coast residents.
“Our strategy to increase the number of people getting vaccinated boils down to convenience,” said Dr. Stephen Bickel, medical director for DOH-Flagler. “The more locations we have that serve people where they live and work, the more likely it is we’ll be able to slow down the spread of the virus. Since we are at a point now that we have enough vaccine, we are adding options to make it easier for people to get vaccinated, at places like the Palm Coast Community Center.”
The City of Palm Coast will host the Health Department’s vaccination efforts on Wednesday mornings between 9 and 10:30AM for the next three weeks. No appointments are required for these walk-in clinics at 305 Palm Coast Parkway NE.
Mayor Milissa Holland gladly supported this latest collaboration between the City and the health department.
“Vaccinations are key for our community to not only return to normalcy but also to help protect ourselves,” said Holland. “We are grateful for the efforts by the Florida Health Department Flagler to make vaccines readily available to residents. And we are happy to be able to be a partner in that effort.”
The Palm Coast Community Center is one of ten locations where Flagler County residents and visitors can receive doses of the Moderna vaccine this week. A complete list of locations can be found here.
“We are grateful to the City of Palm Coast for allowing us to use its community center,” added Bickel. “The site is centrally located, conveniently located for many residents, and allows us to keep expanding our reach into the community.”
