FORT PIERCE – St. Lucie County’s Public Safety staff is partnering with several community agencies to offer COVID vaccines and boosters at different events in the coming weeks.
In partnership with the HANDS Clinic of St. Lucie County, St. Lucie County Fire District, and Fort Pierce Police Department, St. Lucie County will host two COVID vaccine booster events at the Lincoln Park Community Center, located at 1306 Avenue M, Fort Pierce, on Saturday, Feb. 5 and Saturday, Feb. 26 from 1 to 3 p.m. The first event will be a stand-alone event; while the second event will feature other activities as part of an annual Community Health Awareness Day. These events will offer the Pfizer vaccines - both pediatric as well as adult doses. Participants seeking booster shots are reminded to bring their previous vaccination cards.
Additionally, St. Lucie County’s Veterans Services will assist the West Palm Beach Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) with hosting a COVID booster clinic at the Havert L. Fenn Center, located at 2000 Virginia Ave., in Fort Pierce on Sunday, Feb. 6 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
