Broward Health Offering COVID-19 Vaccine To Some In General Public

A South Florida hospital is beginning to open the COVID-19 vaccination process to the public.

Starting today all seniors 65-years-old and older, community healthcare providers and staff, and EMS personnel can make appointments to get their first of two shots through Broward Health.

Ambulatory Services Medical Director Dr. Aldo Calvo says they have plenty of Moderna doses available with a goal of inoculating between ten and 20 an hour. "Depending on what the demand is, and we expect it to be quite large, we will also be replenished to continue this program as so long as it takes to vaccinate as many people as we can."

The shots will be administered Monday through Friday. The location will be provided at the time an appointment is made through Broward Health's Nurse Connect line at 954-759-7500.

Dr. Calvo admits demand has already been high so, "If you call, and if it's busy, or you can't get through, please be patient."

Miami Beach's Mount Sinai Medical Center letting existing patients 75 and over sign up for appointments to get the vaccine. Holy Cross Health in Fort Lauderdale is offering the shot to healthcare workers outside of the Holy Cross family.
