COVID VACCINES!!!
Vaccine Distribution Talking Points Based on News Release Issued Dec. 31
Hillsborough County will begin vaccinating residents who are age 65 and older on Wednesday, Jan. 6.
Hillsborough County is in Phase I of the vaccine distribution plan as outlined and directed by the Governor of Florida. 
Phase I is categorized by limited supply of vaccine availability and is focused on long-term care facilities (residents and staff); frontline healthcare workers; and persons 65 years and over.
Limited availability is anticipated over the next several weeks.
While the supply of vaccines remains limited, Hillsborough County expects new from the state weekly, and vaccination appointments will be made available as those supplies arrive.
Appointments are mandatory for residents age 65 and older to get the first of two vaccine injections.
There will be no vaccines for residents without appointments, and there is no waitlist.
Appointments can be made online at HCCOVID19Shot.as.me beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, Jan. 4.
For residents without Internet access, appointments can be made by calling 888-755-2822.
The phone line will be open beginning Monday, Jan. 4 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
The County has four vaccine distribution sites that are strategically located to reach the most residents based on the sites’ geographic location, available resources, and population density of residents age 65 and older.
Residents can make an appointment for the vaccine site most convenient for them.
The sites are:
o University Mall (parking lot), 2200 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa, FL 33612
o Vance Vogel Sports Complex, 13012 Bullfrog Creek Road, Gibsonton, FL 33534
o Strawberry Festival Fairgrounds, 2700 W. Risk St., Plant City, FL 33563
o Ed Radice Sports Complex, 14720 Ed Radice Drive, Tampa, FL 33626


Details about access to the vaccine distribution sites will be available to residents upon appointment confirmation.
The Ed Radice Sports Complex and the Strawberry Festival Fairgrounds sites will open Wednesday, Jan 6.
The University Mall and the Vance Vogel Sports Complex sites will open Thursday, Jan. 7.
In addition to these sites, Hillsborough County Emergency Management is coordinating with the state for mobile distribution of vaccines to group homes and independent living facilities that meet the state’s criteria.
The state also has made about 74,000 vaccines available for health care partners in Hillsborough County, including Tampa General Hospital, BayCare Health System, CVS, and Walgreens.

Our request is that all of our members do the same to provide a safe environment for all.

PLEA FROM SUN CITY CENTER EMERGENCY SQUAD!
Our Dispatchers take emergency calls from our residents who are having medical emergencies. They get the basic information- medical issue and patient address and get our ambulance crews out the door and on the road. They schedule our medical wheelchair vans to transport patients to dialysis and doctor appointments.  In 2020, many of our dispatchers stepped back from volunteering due to COVID-19  and concern for their health or their families health.  Please consider joining us next Wednesday January 13th at 6pm, to learn more about what our dispatchers do and how they serve our community.

We have had a long history of this and now several of those who serve the community need help now and again themselves. There are 2 components that make the Emergency Squad function. One is money and this community has been very generous over the years. They have made sure we have been able to keep up with technology, providing the best care for our residents we can. The second is volunteers, this is a large community to serve. We are open 24/7 365 days a year. Most of the volunteers are retired, although we have a few younger ones. You can only ask people to work so many shifts, as they are retired like everyone else. Please consider volunteering with us.  We can always train you and make you a welcome part of our team.

3:30 p.m. WSCQ FM 96.3 SUN RADIO, SUN CITY CENTER FL. Guest: Thomas Hines, Assistant Chief for Health Administration, James A Haley VA Hospital.  Would it surprise you to learn that not all veterans get VA medical coverage? Thomas Hines is an expert working at the VA who knows what it takes to get coverage. It can depend on years of service, where you served, how you served, when you were deployed, how much money you make as a family, and 100 other variables. The takeaway from this interview is that you, if you are a veteran, should not disqualify yourself by not trying for coverage. The VA staff is ready and willing to discuss your current condition and evaluate your eligibility for coverage. Thomas points out that the rules are changing constantly and just recently with the passage of the “Blue Water” bill in congress, many sailors are now eligible that a year ago were not.
