Holiday Park in Fort Lauderdale closes COVID-19 testing site, will reopen soon to administer vaccine

The coronavirus testing site at Holiday Park in Broward County has been closed.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – The coronavirus testing site at Holiday Park in Broward County has been closed.

This is to allow for a transition of the site to a vaccine administration location.

According to the City of Fort Lauderdale, it is working with neighboring cities Oakland Park, Pompano Beach and Wilton Manors to establish a COVID-19 vaccination site.

Once up and running, it will be operated by the Florida Department of Health.

Details are still being worked out, according to the City of Fort Lauderdale, but they are hoping to have the site operational “as early as next week,” according to a release from the city.

People ages 65 and older are eligible for the vaccine, but only by appointment. They can be made through Broward County’s Department of Health website, but the site was taken down Thursday temporarily to “enhance site performance,” the city’s release stated.

The COVID-19 testing site at Mills Pond Park remains operational, though it is closed on New Year’s Day. The site normally runs Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
