High demand as new COVID-19 testing site opens in Broward County

Broward County, Florida – As a new COVID-19 testing site opened in Broward County, in response to the surge of new cases in South Florida, demand for testing was very high.
The site at C.B. Smith Park in Pembroke Pines opened at 8 a.m. Thursday with no appointment required.
The drive-thru tests are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 a.m. for both vaccinated and unvaccinated.
People who tried to avoid the lines by making an appointment at a pharmacy said there were no appointments available for days.
“I checked online and every place I saw said ‘no spot available,’ so I came here,” Donnie Vaughn said. “The first opening would be like Saturday.”
C.B. Smith Park offers vaccinations in addition to testing. There’s a setup to get a Pfizer shot around the corner from the testing area with the same hours.
