As of April 16, the Boca Grande Health Clinic will have vaccinated 1,471 patients and members of the Island community with their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and 1,032 with their second dose.
All Florida residents 18 years of age and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. With recent changes in eligibility, the Clinic is scheduling first-dose vaccines for patients, Island residents, and eligible employees of local businesses that took the BG pledge. Individuals must meet all current Florida eligibility requirements.
Please contact the Clinic only if you meet these requirements and are still in need of a first-dose vaccination.
