DOH-Pasco Closed on July 5

June 30, 2021

 

Over 253,000 People Vaccinated in Pasco County

The Florida Department of Health in Pasco County (DOH-Pasco) will be closed on Monday, July 5 in observance of Independence Day and will reopen on Tuesday, July 6.

DOH-Pasco encourages individuals who are attending celebrations this summer to follow CDC COVID-19 guidance for unvaccinated people while attending large gatherings and small gatherings.

The CDC also provides guidance for fully vaccinated people.

As of Sunday, June 27, Pasco County has vaccinated 253,844 people: 32,484 people have received their first doses and 221,360 people have completed their second doses. The following are percentages in Pasco County as of June 30:

  • 12-19 years old: 26 percent have received at least one dose
  • 20-64 years old: 47 percent have received at least one dose
  • 65+ years old: 81 percent have received at least one dose 

In addition, the seven-day COVID-19 positivity rate in Pasco County as of Wednesday, June 30 is 4.2 percent.

COVID-19 vaccination appointments are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at our Dade City clinic at 13941 15th St. and at our New Port Richey clinic located at 10841 Little Rd.

To schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination at a DOH-Pasco clinic, individuals can call 727-861-5260 and select Option 1 for Medical Services then Option 2 for Immunizations. It is required to have a photo I.D. when checking in for all vaccination appointments.

Currently, DOH-Pasco only has the Moderna vaccine, which means DOH-Pasco is unable to provide vaccine to individuals who are 12-17 years old. However, Pasco County has over 130 locations providing vaccine throughout the county, and many of them offer the Pfizer vaccine.
