Bradenton, Fla. – The Florida Department of Health in Manatee County (DOH-Manatee) has partnered with Turning Points to vaccinate 100 individuals against COVID-19.
The closed point of dispensing was held on April 9 at Turning Points, a community partner serving homeless and indigent populations.
Manatee County paramedics and LECOM faculty and students were on hand to provide support, as well.
This is the latest in DOH-Manatee’s efforts to team up one-on-one with community partners to vaccinate specific populations across Manatee County.
DOH-Manatee partnered with the Multicultural Health Institute in February and March to vaccinate more than 450 individuals at Oneco United Methodist Church.
The Department continues to look for community partners serving homeless, migrant farm workers, mobile home parks and other specific populations with COVID-19 vaccine and prevention materials.
