Friends and family of Port Everglades workers and seafarers, including children ages 12 and older, can now receive the COVID-19 vaccinations on-site at the Port. No appointments are necessary. The site, provided by the State of Florida, is open Monday through Friday, June 25, from 8 AM to 5 PM daily, seven days a week in Cruise Terminal 4.
The Johnson and Johnson single shot dose is available from May 10 through June 25 as long as supplies last. The first dose of the Pfizer two-dose vaccine is available until May 21 to allow three weeks to pass before administering the second dose before the site closes. Children ages 12 and older are now eligible for the Pfizer vaccine, and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Ship agents can arrange for State of Florida healthcare workers to administer COVID-19 vaccines to ship’s crew dockside or aboard the ship at Port Everglades through June 25. Contact Mike Sellers with AC Disaster (vendor for State of Florida) at 850-341-7410 or firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the desired vaccination date. If there is a reason that a crew member needs to go to Terminal 4 for the vaccine, U.S. Customs and Border Protection must be notified to provide clearance. Those requests should be emailed to PEV-SEAPORTOFFICE@cbp.dhs.gov; DANIEL.NMN.RAMOS@cbp.dhs.gov; and PAUL.D.SHOUPE@CBP.DHS.GOV as early as practical, and before the vessel’s arrival to the Port. The email should include the reason why the vaccine could not be administered dockside or onboard the vessel at the vessel’s berth. To the maximum extent possible, cargo vessels should make use of the State’s offer to administer the vaccine at the ship.
A mobile site is also available to the public at Resolve Marine, 1550 SE 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale.
Please share this information with those you work with, including vendors and customers. Visitors will need to show a government-issued ID at the checkpoint.
