The City of Palm Bay must operate in accordance with State of Florida vaccination eligibility guidelines. As of April 5, 2021, all Floridians are eligible to receive any COVID-19 vaccine as prescribed by the Food and Drug administration. The Moderna vaccine is authorized for individuals age 18 and up.
Currently, the City has received doses of the Moderna vaccine through its partnership with Brevard County Emergency Management and the Department of Health in Brevard County.
The Moderna vaccine requires two doses, spaced 28 days apart. Individuals who receive the Moderna vaccine at the City of Palm Bay distribution site will have the appointment for their second dose scheduled during their initial visit.
Future Appointment Availability
The City of Palm Bay’s distribution site will operate on a week-to-week basis due to limited vaccine supplies. Future appointment availability will be determined by the weekly vaccine allotments received from the Florida Department of Health.
The City is committed to continuing our vaccine distribution partnership with Brevard County Emergency Management and the Department of Health in Brevard County. As supplies become available, we will open additional vaccination appointments.
