COVID vaccine near me: Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin County, Florida – TCPalm

November 27, 2022

Over 450,100 Treasure Coast residents — about 70% of the population — had been at least partially vaccinated against COVID-19 through Aug. 25, 2022, according to the Florida Department of Health’s latest data.
Infections are on the rise and more Floridians contracted the coronavirus in January than any other month during the pandemic. Health officials urge the remainder of the community to get the vaccine as soon as possible — not only to protect themselves, but also others.
TCPalm will update this list as vaccine clinics open and close, for Treasure Coast residents’ one-stop shot information.
Everyone 6 months and older became eligible for vaccination on June 18, 2022. 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Dec. 16, 2021, recommended the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines over the Johnson & Johnson vaccine but assured, “receiving any vaccine is better than being unvaccinated.” On May 5, 2022, the Food and Drug Administration limited authorized use of the J&J vaccine to adults for whom mRNA vaccines are inaccessible or clinically inappropriate. Over the summer, the CDC recommended the Novavax vaccine for people 12 and older. 
Moderately to severely immunocompromised people ages 12 and older — such as those with advanced HIV infection or who have received an organ transplant — are eligible for an “additional dose,” according to the CDC. These individuals must have completed their primary, two-dose Pfizer or Moderna series, or received the single-dose J&J shot, at least four weeks prior. Immunocompromised Pfizer patients 5-11 get their additional dose at least eight weeks after the second. Immunocompromised Moderna patients under 12 get an additional dose at least four weeks after the second.
In September 2022, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky endorsed an updated, bivalent booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine for people 12 and older and the Moderna vaccine for people 18 and older, at least two months after their primary series or most recent booster or additional dose. The new boosters target the BA.4 and BA.5 omicron subvariants; people 12 and older can no longer receive the previous monovalent booster.
Children 5-11 are eligible for a monovalent Pfizer booster at least five months after their primary series. Adolescents 12-17 who received the Moderna or Novavax primary series are eligible for an updated Pfizer booster at least two months later. 
People 50 and older who got the single-dose J&J vaccine are eligible for a booster after at least two months, and an updated Pfizer or Moderna booster two months after that. J&J recipients 18-49 can get an updated booster two months following their single dose.
The CDC now allows people to “mix and match” boosters. That is, they may choose which vaccine they get for their additional or booster dose, regardless of which brand manufactured their initial dose(s).
People who are homebound may request a vaccine by emailing homeboundvaccine@em.myflorida.com or calling 866-779-6121. An online request form is also available. In addition, Mobile Medical Associates and Doctors House Calls provide such services on the Treasure Coast.
