BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — COVID-19 vaccine distribution in Palm Beach County is exceptionally bad, confirmed by the latest numbers released by the Florida Department of Health.
In a county of 1.5-million people, only 117,742 shots have been administered. Just 7,313 of those shots are second doses. And only 13,815 of all the shots administered have ended up in the arm of someone 85 or older. There is no official report of how many were actually administered to people who live in the county. There is nothing stopping someone from Broward, Miami or even Duvall County — that’s Jacksonville — from getting a shot in Palm Beach County.
By age group as of Sunday night, January 24, 2021:
Age 16-24 — 1,035 shots administered, 94 complete.
Age 25-34 — 3,256 shots administered, 663 complete.
Age 35-44 — 4,444 shots administered, 1059 complete.
Age 55-64 — 8,655 shots administered, 1,376 complete.
Age 65-74 — 45,675 shots administered, 1,085 complete.
Age 75-84 — 34,999 shots administered, 761 complete
Age 85 and older: 13,815 shots administered, 707 complete.
The Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County continues to have limited access to the COVID-19 vaccine. The next “online signup morning” for Publix is Wednesday, January 27th, starting at 6 a.m.
