Florida Department of Health Launches New Website to Schedule COVID-19 Vaccinations for Priority Populations
By Space Coast Daily // January 30, 2021
COVID-19 vaccines continue to arrive in Florida in extremely limited supply
BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – Florida Representative Tyler Sirois (R-Merritt Island) announced that the State of Florida Department of Health has launched the new statewide pre-registration website MyVaccine to schedule COVID-19 vaccinations for priority populations eligible under Governor DeSantis’ Executive Order.
Those currently eligible include people 65 years of age and older, long-term care facility residents and staff, healthcare personnel with direct patient contact, and those deemed extremely vulnerable to COVID-19.
The MyVaccine site can be accessed at MyVaccine.fl.gov
Eligible Brevard residents can pre-register now for the COVID-19 vaccine, by selecting Brevard County in the drop-down menu on the page and clicking “Get In Line.”
Brevard residents without access to a computer may call 866-201-5420 or TTY 833-476-1525.
COVID-19 vaccines continue to arrive in Florida in extremely limited supply.
“As the State of Florida awaits additional vaccine supply from the Federal Government, I urge eligible Florida residents to save their place in line by pre-registering today,” said Sirois.
“Providing residents with a streamlined way to pre-register is a step in the right direction as we continue to work with various stakeholders at both state and local levels to meet a demand that far outweighs our supply. My office is working with many home-bound seniors to get them vaccinated.”
Sirois said some of these seniors do not have access to a cell phone and are not technology-savvy.
“We are doing our best to get everyone that needs a vaccine in line to receive one,” said Sirois.
If you are a Brevard resident and know a homebound senior who has not yet been registered for a COVID-19 vaccine, you may call Sirois’ Merritt Island District Office at 321-449-5111. The MyVaccine site can be accessed at MyVaccine.fl.gov
