Bunnell, FL - If you're a Flagler County senior who still hasn't heard back from the state regarding your first vaccine appointment, you might want to re-register, and soon.
With the likelihood that Governor Ron DeSantis could change the vaccine eligibility requirements within the next month, Flagler County is encouraging eligible residents to re-register through the state's "Sharecare" system if they have yet to hear from the state about their first appointment.
"Certainly we recommend that all residents 65 and older to sign up if they haven’t already done so," said Flagler County Emergency Management Director Jonathan Lord. "For those of you who previously registered but have not yet received a call back from the state, we recommend you register again to ensure the state has your best contact information."
If you are currently eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, whether you have previously registered or not, you can visit Flagler County's COVID-19 webpage for details, or you can call the state's appointment hotline at 866-201-1541. Registrants will be contacted in the order that they have signed up.
"Online registration is the most efficient process," Lord added. "However, if you do not have internet access please call the state’s appointment hotline."
If the state reaches out to schedule an appointment—whether by phone or email— residents must answer the phone or quickly respond to the written notification to secure an appointment. The state will then make a few additional attempts to contact those who do not immediately respond when subsequent appointments become available.
Flagler residents 65 years old or older—and those who are also homebound or require transportation assistance to the Flagler County Fairgrounds—can contact the Emergency Operations Center at 386-313-4200, or by email to discuss available transportation options.
