Registrants will need to follow the prompts in order to choose an appointment time for Friday, Jan. 15 and submit their identifying information, according to the fire department. A confirmation email will be provided to each successful registrant with the time and location of their appointment, general instructions, as well as a link to a vaccine consent form that must be completed and brought with them to the appointment.

“It is the goal of Delray Beach Fire Rescue to help get this vaccine to as many people as possible to put an end to COVID-19 pandemic,” Fire Chief Keith Tomey said.

Below is some important information for those interested in making an appointment:

  • Do not make an appointment if you currently have COVID-19 symptoms.

  • Individuals without an appointment will be turned away.
  • Registrants must be 65 or older and must bring valid identification with them to the appointment.
  • Any questions about the vaccine should be addressed to your individual healthcare provider.
