COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The CDC, Florida Department of Health, and Governor Ron DeSantis decided to move forward with a phased approach to distributing the COVID-19 vaccine.  Currently, Florida is in Phase 1. According to the State of Florida Executive Order 21-47, during this first phase of vaccine administration, all providers administering any COVID-19 vaccine shall only vaccinate the following populations:

  • Long-term care facility (LTCF) residents and staff;
  • Persons 65 years of age and older;
  • Health care personnel with direct patient contact; 
  • K-12 school employees 50 years of age and older; and
  • Firefighters 50 years of age and older.

  • Individuals receiving a vaccine are required to bring:
    • COVID-19 Vaccine Screening and Consent Form
    • Form of ID (driver's license, passport, healthcare badge, etc.)
    • Proof of Florida residency.
    • Vaccine appointment card received during first dose appointment for second dose appointment
