The state announced the launch of a statewide preregistration system to schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for individuals 65 and older and frontline healthcare workers. Individuals can preregister for vaccine appointments and be notified when appointments are available in their area by visiting myvaccine.fl.gov.

This website will allow individuals who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to be proactively contacted when vaccine appointments are available at state-supported vaccination sites. On the site, residents can select their county and submit their contact information. Once appointments are available, individuals will be contacted by phone call, text, or email and will be assisted in scheduling an appointment. 

Vaccine supply remains limited and appointments may not be available for several weeks in some counties.

Additionally, as part of the statewide registration system, each county has a designated phone number that individuals can call and preregister if they do not have internet access. or for Monroe County residents by calling 866-201-7069 (TTY: 833-990-2908). Whether a resident calls by phone or visits myvaccine.fl.gov, their place in line will be reserved reliably using Sharecare software. 

As outlined in Executive Order 20 – 315, individuals who are eligible for the vaccine in Florida are:

Long-term care facility residents and staff;

  • Persons 65 years of age and older; and
  • Health care personnel with direct patient contact.

If someone does not meet these eligibility requirements, they will not be able to preregister. Monroe County’s COVID-19 helpline is 833-540-2081.
