The program is made possible through partnerships that include the Florida Division of Emergency Management, Seafarers’ House, Celebrity Cruises, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean International.
Seafarers’ House is assisting by transporting health care workers directly to ships dockside to administer vaccinations.
'We are grateful to the state of Florida and our cruise line partners for making the vaccines available to those at sea,' said Jonathan Daniels, Port Everglades chief executive and port director. 'This is a vital humanitarian effort to reach crew members who often don’t have access to landside medical facilities.
Port Everglades is one of five Florida seaports where the Florida Division of Emergency Management has arranged for port workers to be vaccinated.
