Persons without an appointment will not be eligible to get the vaccine.
Councilwoman Sherri Myers called to say the appointment process is smooth and simple.
“I was really depressed and frustrated trying to use the health department process yesterday,” said Myers. “But I’m overwhelmed and overjoyed with the new system. I called and have my appointment for tomorrow afternoon.”
Last night, Commissioner Lumon May told Inweekly that the pilot vaccination program held on Sunday at Brownsville Community Center vaccinated over 580 people. The FDOH Escambia had purchased additional vaccines to help.
May said, “I couldn’t be prouder how well the program went. Once again, the Brownsville Community Center came through for the community, thanks to help of FDOH, Community Health, Florida National Guard and county and state employees.”
