COVID-19 Response

All questions regarding vaccinations, appointments, and logistics of receiving a vaccine should be directed to representatives at the FL Department of Health in Pinellas. Although Foundation has advocated to assist with equitable access and distribution, Foundation team members are not involved with the logistics of scheduling or disseminating COVID-19 vaccines. Inquiries of this nature will promptly be rerouted to FLDOH professionals.

Please visit https://www.patientportalfl.com to create an account and book available COVID-19 vaccination appointments. For additional assistance, call the Patient Portal phone line, available 24/7 at (844) 770-8548.

Remember to continue to wear a mask, continue social distancing and frequently wash your hands even after vaccination. Stay Safe, Pinellas!

Race Equity at the Forefront

Racial discrimination has a wide-ranging and enduring legacy in Pinellas County, Florida. Across the social determinants of health—like education, housing, access to medical care and healthy food, employment and wealth-building opportunities—institutions and systems are embedded with structural racism that disadvantages and harms African American people.

The result is profound racial disparities in health, lifespan, and quality of life. Research tells us that stress, disease and other repercussions of discrimination, poverty, and lack of fair access to resources and opportunity take their toll on individual health at an alarming rate.

If we want a community that is healthier, fairer, more prosperous and more humane, race equity must be a priority—now! The Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg embraces a mission of race equity as the surest means of achieving health equity and improved population health overall.

Linda Cade

I would like to see ongoing conversations across races, religions, SES, genders, sexual orientations, etc. I would like to feel part of a community where it is understood that there is no us and them. It’s an arbitrary concept. We are all just individuals that want to figure out where we can feel loved and accepted.
