The Health Care District of Palm Beach County opened its fourth mobile vaccine unit at a Palm Beach County School District location Wednesday.

Parents and their kids showed up to Safe Schools Institute in Boca Raton to get the Pfizer vaccine. Students ages 12 and older, their families and district staff are eligible.

The partnership with the health care district was approved by the school board two weeks ago. School leaders said it’s about convenience and getting the COVID-19 shot into more arms districtwide.

“I feel 10 times better, because now I won’t have to worry about getting COVID,” said 25-year-old Wyatt Jacobs.

A consent form will be required for students ages 12 to 17 and a parent or guardian will need to be with them.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is also being offered to anyone 18 and older if they prefer to get the single-dose vaccine.

Each mobile vaccine unit location will be open on different days from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Aug. 8.

No appointments are required.

According to the Health Care District of Palm Beach County, they've provided 120 vaccinations over the first two days of operation at the school district-based sites at district headquarters in West Palm Beach on Saturday, June 5, and at the Pew Center in Palm Beach Gardens on Monday, June 7.
