Hillsborough County, Fla. (May 28, 2021) - Hillsborough County's COVID-19 coronavirus public vaccination site at the community center at Palm River Park, 725 S. 58th St. in Tampa, will be closed on Memorial Day, May 31.

First doses of the vaccine will be available at the indoor location June 1-4 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. In addition, the Palm River Park location will accept individuals who missed their second Pfizer dose that was to have been dispensed at any of the federal, state, and County public vaccination sites.

Vaccinations will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis; an appointment is not necessary.

Hillsborough County dispenses the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, which can be given to individuals 12 years of age and older. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Florida residents, as well as anyone who is present in Florida for the purpose of providing goods and services for the benefit of residents and visitors, are eligible to be vaccinated as prescribed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

For convenience, individuals receiving their first dose can save time at the vaccination site by going to patientportalfl.com and opening an account before arriving. The registration process is simple and easy, and takes only a few minutes. However, creating an account beforehand is not required.

There is no out-of-pocket cost to be vaccinated. A doctor's note or prescription is not required. Health insurance information is being collected in accordance with federal guidance; however, you will not be asked to pay a copay or deductible. Individuals who do not have health insurance will still be vaccinated.
