COVID-19: Testing and Vaccine Sites

As COVID-19 cases increase in our area, please take necessary precautions to stay safe and healthy.

There are several local facilities offering COVID-19 testing and vaccine and booster shots, with and without appointments. Please check the links below:

The City continues to monitor the information and messaging coming from the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) and the State of Florida Governor’s Office about COVID-19.

Homebound Residents

Palm Beach County residents who are homebound, elderly, or with disabilities and would like to get the COVID-19 vaccine or booster shot call 833-930-3672 or go to homebound.patientportalFL.com to register.

Registration includes a 15-minute pre-screening to ascertain whether you have ever had an allergic reaction and if so, what were the symptoms; whether you are on a blood thinner and which one; whether or not you have had COVID, and if so, when. There is no cost and insurance is not necessary. Vaccine appointments are Monday - Friday.

Homebound residents can also utilize Palm Tran services for transportation to COVID-19 testing sites. Palm Tran Connection (a shared ride, door-to-door paratransit service) is available for qualifying individuals. For eligibility and an application, please call 561-649-9838 or (toll-free) 877-870-9849. Palm Tran fixed-route buses travel throughout Palm Beach County and offer a half fare for seniors age 65 and over. Buses can kneel down to curb level, accomodating passengers with special needs. All buses are equipped with wheelchair ramps. Call customer service at 561-841-4BUS or (toll-free) 877-930-4287. Visit the Palm Tran website for more information.

A Message from Baptist Health Boca Regional Hospital

Also, please see the following guidelines for those seeking assistance navigating the latest COVID-19 surge from one of the City's community partners - Baptist Health

  • Please spare emergency rooms and urgent care centers for the truly sick and hurt. If you are looking for a COVID-19 test, and you feel fine or have mild symptoms, please consider an at-home test kit, a pharmacy, or Palm Beach County community testing site to get checked out.  
  • Baptist Health has temporarily changed the hours of operation at many of the urgent care centers; please check online before driving in. 
  • To avoid a drive-in altogether, Baptist Health is offering free online urgent care via the Baptist Health Care On Demand telehealth app (using code CARE19)
  • Baptist Health is urging the community to help by getting vaccinated, getting boosted, distancing, and wearing a mask.
