Hillsborough County is consolidating public COVID-19 testing, vaccines, boosters and antibody treatment therapy into one site. It will be the only COVID-19 public site supported by the county.

Starting Nov. 27, the West Tampa Community Resource Center at 2103 N. Rome Avenue in Tampa will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

It will offer COVID-19 testing, adult and Pfizer pediatric vaccinations, Pfizer booster shots, and antibody therapy treatment.

Appointments are not required.

COVID-19 testing, vaccinations and antibody therapy treatment are free, but proof of medical insurance is recommended and should be presented at the time of the visit.

People without medical insurance will still be tested, vaccinated and treated.

Children ages 5 to 11 who are accompanied by their parent or legal guardian can receive the COVID-19 Pfizer pediatric vaccine at the site. The child must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to verbally confirm the child's age.

Residents who would like to make an appointment are encouraged to visit patientportalfl.com or call (844) 770-8548.
