***SCAM ALERT!***Caller ID Spoofing!

The Department of Health in Palm Beach County has recently been informed of calls that look to have originated from our main number in Delray Beach (561-274-3100), asking for personal information such as your Medicare ID, social security number, or other personal identifying information. The Florida Department of Health would never call you, unsolicited, asking for personal information. Scammers want to use your data in fraud schemes, costing you money. Don’t let them! If the call seems suspicious, just hang up.

ALSO avoid any suspicious websites asking for your personal information!

 

Should you take the COVID-19 vaccine if you are planning to get pregnant?

There is currently no evidence that any vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, cause fertility problems. CDC does not recommend routine pregnancy testing before COVID-19 vaccination. If you are trying to become pregnant, you do not need to avoid pregnancy after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.

 

I am in need of my second dose but do not have an appointment. When will I receive my second dose?

If you originally received your first dose through DOH-Palm Beach, (not the Health Care District), we will contact you to schedule your second dose no later than 3 weeks since your first dose. If you did not receive your first dose from DOH-Palm Beach, you will need to get your second dose from wherever you received your first dose, or by some other option.

Due to lack of supply, DOH-Palm Beach is unfortunately unable to provide second doses to those who did not receive their first dose from us.

 

Can I take the Moderna vaccine, and then the Pfizer vaccine for my second shot, or vice versa?

Per the CDC it is not advised to switch vaccines. Your second dose should be the same vaccine as your first dose.  Please see this link for more information: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/info-by-product/clinical-considerations.html#Interchangeability

 

Is it ok to get the Pfizer vaccine 28 days later instead of 21 days?

Yes per the CDC, this is within the allowed timeframe of getting your second dose.  More information can be found at this link: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/info-by-product/clinical-considerations.html#Administration

 

What side effects are possible after receiving the vaccine?

Please see this page from the CDC for more information: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/expect/after.html

If you have lost or misplaced your COVID-19 vaccination card, and would like to request a replacement, you will need to contact the same organization you used to get your vaccination.

If you received your vaccination from the Florida Department of Health, please email chd50contactus@flhealth.gov with “Vaccination Card Request” in the subject line.

If you received your vaccination from the Health Care District of Palm Beach County, please request your replace card from their website: www.hcdpbc.org
