The City of Miramar’s Vice Mayor Yvette Colbourne is providing in partnership with Cleveland’s Old-Fashioned Ice Cream up to 300 Miramar residents free ice cream if they get vaccinated during the month of June.

Proof of the vaccine and residency is required.

Vice Mayor Colbourne believes achieving our country’s vaccination goal will require the involvement of local governments and neighborhood-focused efforts and incentives.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only slightly more than 40 percent of the U.S. population has been fully vaccinated, prompting President Biden to announce June as the “national month of action” to get more people vaccinated by July 4.

The free ice cream will be available throughout the month of June from Cleveland’s Old-Fashioned Ice Cream, Monday through Thursday only at 6933 Miramar Pkwy, Miramar, FL 33023.

“We must work together to get to the other side of this pandemic,” she said. “Better times are ahead when we are all vaccinated.”

Miramar residents may receive vaccinations at Vizcaya Park at 14200 SW 55th Street, seven days a week, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  For more information, call 866-779-6121 or visit floridahealth.gov.
