DOH-Bay is also monitoring the weather for possible delays in other dose arrivals 

Panama City, Fla.— The Florida Department of Health in Bay County (DOH-Bay) is moving COVID-19 second dose vaccine appointments previously scheduled for Thursday, February 18 to Wednesday, February 17. This is due to the potential of severe weather on Thursday. Appointments will remain at the previous time scheduled. These second dose vaccines will still be provided at DOH-Bay, 597 W. 11th ST, Panama City. DOH-Bay staff will also be calling persons who are affected directly.

“We greatly apologize for any inconvenience this may cause as we do our best to protect the health and safety of our clients and staff”, said Sandon S. Speedling, MHS, CPM, CPH, Administrator and Health Officer, DOH-Bay.

We are also watching the weather for additional delays in shipment of vaccines due to weather conditions nationwide. This could affect second dose appointments scheduled for late this week and early next week. We have not yet received first doses for this week due to delays in delivery from winter weather. DOH-Bay will continue to monitor shipping notifications and provide information on any changes as quickly as possible.
