BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — If tips to BocaNewsNow.com are true, there are Boca Raton and Delray Beach area doctors — who are not on the front lines of COVID patient care — cutting the line to receive COVID-19 vaccines at hospitals in and around Palm Beach County. These are not doctors who are routinely involved with emergency or ICU care. These are not doctors who traditionally provide lifesaving services. These are not even doctors who routinely spend time in a hospital.

According to our tipsters, these are doctors in private practice — some in administrative positions — who apparently have enough clout to arrange for COVID-19 shots before area front line emergency workers.

While the tips received by BocaNewsNow.com include names and — in some cases — very specific information, we are working to determine whether these are completely legitimate reports. If they are legit, we want to know if the incidents are isolated, or if there is a pervasive issue of doctors deciding that their importance outweighs the need for legitimate frontline COVID care providers to receive the vaccine.

If you have information concerning non front line doctors or non-hospital administrative workers receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, please let us know. While we ask for your name for our follow-up, we have no need to publish your personal information. The more information you provide to us helps us as we effort to authenticate the report.

Vaccine in the area remains in short supply. Pfizer’s vaccine arrived in Florida earlier this week. The Moderna vaccine is expected to reach Florida hospitals over the the next few days. See a list of hospitals expecting the COVID vaccine, here.
