The City of Riviera Beach remains determined to serve the residents of the community in every way possible. Recently we have operated a vaccination site at the Wells Recreation Center to host and operate a series of vaccinations that were administered to hundreds of qualified seniors and frontline healthcare workers in and around the City. This was accomplished through collaboration with the State of Florida, Palm Beach County and the City of Riviera Beach. City employees have spent many hours to provide the community with the outstanding service they deserve during this unprecedented time.

Though vaccinations are currently unavailable with the City, community members should check back at this webpage for future updates or sign-up for CodeRed when vaccinations become available, so that you can receive notifications to your phone or by email. In addition, Palm Beach County provides an abundance of other resources and opportunities for vaccinations, simply visit their website by clicking here.
