Residents in Broward County will soon have one less site to get tested for COVID-19, but will soon get another site to receive the vaccine needed in the pandemic.
The city of Fort Lauderdale released a statement Friday saying the site at Holiday Park will be closing as a testing site, but will soon transition to a site where residents ages 65 and older can receive the vaccine.
