Hillsborough Targeted Vaccine Initiative Continues to Take Vaccines Directly to Seniors

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. – Hillsborough County continues to administer vaccines to those age 65 and older through the Targeted Vaccine Area (TVA) initiative.

The program allows for staff to visit and vaccinate seniors at senior homes, independent living communities, churches, and other targeted groups throughout the county.

Last week, Hillsborough County Aging Services, Hillsborough County Office of Emergency Management, and the Florida Department of Health in Hillsborough County identified and scheduled vaccinations at seven sites.

Vaccinations were administered to more than 1,100 seniors at:

  • Mary Walker Apartments in Temple Terrace
  • San Clemente Villas in Plant City
  • Bayshore Presbyterian Apartments in Tampa
  • Patrician Arms I and II in Tampa
  • J.L. Young Apartments in Tampa
  • Robles Park Apartments in Tampa
  • Revealing Truth Ministries in Tampa

The aim of the TVA initiative is to identify locations with high concentrations of seniors and to deliver the vaccines to them. The program started in January at Kings Manor in Tampa and the San Lorenzo I and II communities.

Staff from the Hillsborough County Office of Emergency Management and Aging Services continue to identify locations for future vaccinations.

USF Health, Hillsborough Community College, Tampa General Hospital, and the Tampa Housing Authority are partners in the TVA initiative.

This week, Hillsborough County and its partners will continue to provide the same service to seniors at other locations. The timing of future vaccinations through the TVA initiative will depend on the supply of vaccines.
