PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — The Health Care District of Palm Beach County is scheduling pediatric patient visits for children between the ages of five months and six years old to receive the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccinations will be administered by a C.L. Brumback Primary Care Clinic pediatrician and will begin on Tuesday, June 28, 2022 at the Lantana, West Palm Beach and Belle Glade clinics.
