BOCA RATON, Fla. — A South Florida resource outreach center provided hundreds of COVID-19 vaccines Saturday to underserved people in Palm Beach County.

The Wayne Barton Study Center, a nonprofit organization in Boca Raton that helps enhance health, welfare and education of children in the community, on Friday and Saturday provided more than 850 Johnson & Johnson vaccine shots to underserved areas, including Pearl City.

The CEO of the study center said that in order for everyone to return to the way things were, it will require everyone.

"I say to the people, take a role in this fight. Don't sit on the sideline," Wayne Barton said. "There is something that you can do to help defeat this thing, and we can't defeat it individually. We can only defeat this together."

There will be another one at the same location next Friday and Saturday.
