Lee Health has announced it’s closing its COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at Gulf Coast Medical Center. Wednesday will be the last day of operation. The clinic opened a year ago to deliver the vaccine shortly after it was approved. Since opening, the clinic administered nearly 150,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The COVID-19 vaccine is now in abundant supply at hundreds of locations across Southwest Florida, and Lee Health is integrating its vaccine efforts into normal daily operations.
At Lee Health, the COVID-19 vaccine is available for ages 5-17 in Lee Physician Group pediatric offices and a mobile clinic that travels around the community. It will be available for adults at select retail pharmacies in the health system following the closure of the clinic at Gulf Coast.
