Full Story
West Palm Beach, Fla.— Back to school time is around the corner, and The Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County is encouraging parents not to wait, and make sure their children’s immunizations are up to date now for the 2022-2023 school year. By ensuring your child is immunized now, you will beat the rush and increased wait times later.

  • When necessary, providers should prioritize treating patients at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19 illness, including older and immunocompromised individuals and those with clinical risk factors.
