Bay County Florida leaders want far more websites

PANAMA Town — Bay County leaders have proposed to the Office of Health adding extra COVID-19 vaccination web pages so residents have much more solutions and fewer length to travel.

The proposal arrives right after the Florida Division of Well being in Bay County began rolling out the vaccine to seniors 65 several years outdated and older a few of months ago. The county’s first freshly proposed site is at 5308 E. U.S. 98 and owned by the Gulf Coast Kid’s Advocacy Middle and Real estate agent Jason Oakes. County workers claimed the site would be a fantastic place for vaccine distribution since it would help seniors in Springfield and Parker.
