All vaccines are distributed via appointment. However, should there be any no-shows, we have developed a Vaccine Stand By List to accept names of individuals who would have the ability to come to the Ezell Hester Community Center quickly to receive a leftover vaccine. Please fill out this form if you wish to be contacted at the last minute in the event that we have any leftover doses.   Note - you will only be called if leftover doses are available. 

The Boynton Beach Fire Rescue Department will be administering the vaccines.
