Seniors 65 and older and people with health conditions that make them extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 can now pre-register for the vaccine through a new website and phone system. Visit myvaccine.fl.gov or if you would prefer to schedule an appointment by phone, you can call 888-499-0840 or TTY 888-256-8918.
According to the Florida Division of Emergency Management, all registrants will be notified when slots become available at state-supported vaccination sites in their county. You will need to show proof that you are a Florida resident. Florida residents who do not meet the priority criteria can also sign up to receive email updates to learn when they will be eligible to receive the vaccine.
