By CJ HADDAD - | Dec 27, 2021

Lee Health will close its COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at Gulf Coast Medical Center, with its last day in operation being Wednesday.

The clinic opened a year ago and has administered nearly 150,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Lee Health officials announcing the clinic’s closure on Monday said with the vaccine in abundant supply at hundreds of locations across the region, the county’s largest healthcare system is integrating its vaccine efforts into normal daily operations.

“Operating the clinic was a massive undertaking made possible by a team of dedicated Lee Health staff members who were eager to help protect our community,” said Lee Health spokesperson Jonathon Little in the email.

At Lee Health, the COVID-19 vaccine is available for ages 5-17 in Lee Physician Group pediatric offices and a mobile clinic that travels around the community. The vaccine will be available for adults at select retail pharmacies in the health system following the closure of the clinic at Gulf Coast, officials said.
