The state of Florida announced a new website where eligible residents can pre-register for appointments and then be notified when they become available.
The website is at: myvaccine.fl.gov
The health department says Florida residents 65 and older and frontline healthcare workers can enter their information on that website and will be contacted when doses are available.
Residents “will be contacted by phone call, text or email and will be assisted in scheduling an appointment,” the state says. Vaccine supply remains limited and appointments “may not be available for several weeks in some counties.”
People without internet access can call a county-specific number instead to preregister.
Miami-Dade: 888-499-0840 (TTY: 888-256-8918)
Broward: 866-201-6313 (TTY: 844-252-2003)
Monroe: 866-201-7069 (TTY: 833-990-2908)
Palm Beach: 866-201-6754 (TTY: 833-476-1532)
Miami-Dade plans to roll out its own pre-registration system at miamidade.gov/vaccine
Proof of residency must be brought to any vaccine appointment across the state and people who do not meet the current eligibility requirements for shots will not be allowed to preregister online or by phone.
