Tallahassee, FL - The state of Florida opened up a statewide website for COVID-19 vaccinations, myvaccine.fl.gov, today (January 29). Even if you're not currently eligible, you can sign up now to receive email updates to learn when you will be eligible for the vaccine.
The registration form is fairly simple, asking for your county, name, email address, phone number, and date of birth. Those eligible right now are Florida residents over the age of 65, long-term care facility residents and staff, healthcare personnel with direct patient contact, and individuals deemed extremely vulnerable to COVID-19.
Additionally, as part of the statewide registration system, each county has a designated phone number that individuals can call and pre-register if they do not have Internet access. Please find the complete list of numbers by county here. Whether a resident calls by phone or visits myvaccine.fl.gov, their place in line will be reserved reliably using Sharecare software.
The website explains that the federal government sets a weekly vaccine allocation for each state. Florida orders the vaccine weekly, they ship to Florida counties and go into arms as quickly as possible.
