Winter Haven, April 23, 2021 — Polk State College, in partnership with the Florida
Department of Health in Polk County (DOH-Polk), will host an on-site COVID-19
vaccination event for students, faculty, staff, and their families. The event will take place
on April 30, 2021, on the Polk State Winter Haven Campus, 999 Ave. H N.E., in the
Health Center.
To facilitate safety and social distancing and to minimize wait time, participation in the
event will be by appointment only. Students, employees, and their family members who
are 18 years of age or older are encouraged to visit the College’s webpage at
www.polk.edu/vaccine to make an appointment and download screening and consent
forms. Vaccinations are free.
“Since the onset of the COVID-19 public health emergency, Polk State has proceeded
with the College community’s health and safety at the forefront. This vaccination event
is one more way that we can be a part of keeping our College community, and Polk
County as a whole, safe and healthy,” said Polk State President Angela Garcia
Falconetti.
DOH-Polk will be prepared to vaccinate more than 1,000 individuals at the event using
the Moderna vaccine. They have stated that if the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is
cleared for use by April 30, it will be offered to participants as an option. Individuals will
be allowed to choose which vaccine they would like to receive at their appointments.
Polk State College is currently in Phase II of its Return to Campus Plan and all
individuals on campus are required to wear masks or cloth face coverings and practice
social distancing.
