This update confirms that Mobile Medical Associates (MMA) has NOT YET been able to obtain an allocation of vaccines from St Lucie County Board of Health and, at this time, is not able to predict the timing of receipt of future allocations.
We encourage you to continue to seek the vaccine at any location available to you.
Provided below is information on the process to be used and current eligibility criteria for the vaccine.
WHEN THE VACCINE IS AVAILABLE, individuals will register for an appointment on-line. Distribution of the date and time for each individual will be made through individual Association management, not the on-line system.

Possible Vaccination site at HO/V3
Covid Vaccine Clinic Information
Holiday Out and the Presidents Council of Hutchinson Island will be conducting a Covid- 19 Vaccine clinic in the near future, We expect the vaccination will be done by early February. The timing will be dependent on vaccine availability from the St. Lucie County health department. Planning for the event is underway now, so all details are not available at this time.
Once the detailed plans are in place, an information page will be available on the Presidents Council website and we will provide a link here once it is known. At this time we do not know which vaccine will be administered. It will depend on availability.
We don't know if there will be enough doses for everyone. 3000 doses have been requested but we don't know how many will be allocated. They will be distributed on a first come first served basis to all Presidents Council condo residents registering through the vendor's website. That website and link has not been set up yet. We will provide that link here once it is available. There will be no telephone or paper registrations. Here is what we do know at this time.
The location will be at the Holiday Out Rec Hall.
The vaccine clinic is being performed by a private company, Mobile Medical Associates.
The vaccinations are at no charge, but there is a $25.00 service fee for each of the
two required injections to cover the costs of Mobile Medical Associates bringing the vaccine to us.
Your second vaccination appointment will schedule at the time of the first vaccination.
It will be open to all residents age 65 and older.
You must not have had a positive Covid test within the last 30 days.
You must be available for the second vaccine 28 days after the first.
All registration will be done on-line. If you do not have internet access, you will need to work with someone who does.
Volunteers will be needed to assist with check-in and parking on the day of the event.
