The Boca Grande Health Clinic continues to monitor the rapidly changing COVID-19 vaccine distribution landscape as rollout of the vaccine continues across Florida. Using our best efforts with state and county contacts, we are confident that we will receive an initial supply of vaccine for patients in the near future.

In anticipation, the Clinic is taking steps to ensure a safe and efficient process for administering the vaccine. If you are interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine at the Clinic, please contact us if you meet all of the following criteria:

  1. You are 65 years old or older
  2. Currently in Boca Grande
  3. A patient at the Clinic or would like to become a patient

You can reach us by phone at (941) 964-2276. Please be patient if phone lines are busy.

The Clinic will use a medically focused and age stratified vaccine allocation system, weighing age and risk factors, to schedule vaccination appointments to those who have expressed interest and meet the criteria. You must be a Clinic patient age 65 or older and you must return to the Clinic to receive your second-round shot, 28 days after your first vaccination.

The Clinic will make the vaccine available to additional patients as more supply becomes available.

We will continue to provide updates as information becomes available in this ever-changing situation. Please continue to watch your email and the Clinic website (https://www.bghc.org/) for updates.
