Miami-Dade County launched a phone number for making COVID-19 vaccine appointments.
The phone number - 305-614-2014 - is accepting appointments, and appointments can also be made at miamidade.gov/vaccine.
The new number was set up to make it easier for vaccines to be distributed more efficiently to seniors 65 and older.
"We are taking urgent action to ensure no communities are left behind and all our seniors 65 and older have equal access to this lifesaving vaccine. To distribute the vaccine equitably to vulnerable Miami-Dade County residents, we are proud to introduce a phone option to expand access to the vaccine to protect our county and move forward together," Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said in a statement.
The county is also opening a new vaccine distribution site at Miami Dade College North Campus, and will reopen the vaccination site located at Zoo Miami.
All county vaccination sites are by appointment only.
