On March 3, four federally-supported vaccination sites opened in Tampa, Miami, Jacksonville and Orlando.
These federally-supported sites are being established as part of a joint mission through the federal and state government to increase vaccine access in or near Duval, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade and Orange counties. In addition to these four sites, the state is also operating satellite sites that relocate every three to seven days to reach as many residents as possible.
These sites are vaccinating the following populations, as per Executive Order 21-47:
· Long-term care facility residents and staff;
· Persons 65 years of age and older;
· Health care personnel with direct patient contact;
· K-12 school employees 50 years of ages and older;
· Sworn law enforcement officers 50 years of ages and older;
· Firefighters 50 years of age and older; and
· Individuals deemed extremely vulnerable by a licensed physician.
Appointments are not required at any of the federally-supported sites. However, individuals who are interested in scheduling an appointment may visit myvaccine.fl.gov. Individuals who submit their information through this site will be contacted to schedule their appointment.
If an individual arrives to the site and all time slots are filled for that day, site staff will work with them to schedule an appointment at the site to receive a vaccine. Individuals can also schedule appointments on site in a separate registration lane if they do not want to wait for walk-up availability.
Each site is accessible by local public transportation. Each site also has air-conditioned tents, chairs, ASL interpreters, bilingual staff, wheelchair accessibility and accommodations for the visually impaired. Additional accommodations can be made on site, if necessary.
Site addresses and the current satellite site schedule is available at FloridaDisaster.org/Vaccine.
