Governor Ron DeSantis announced new eligibility guidelines for COVID-19 vaccinations in Florida.
Beginning Monday, April 5, all individuals age 18 and older will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
DOH-Broward encourages individuals to use the statewide appointment system http://myvaccine.fl.gov to reserve their place in line. Individuals can also pre-register for the vaccine by calling: 866-201-6313, or 844-252-2003 for TTY users, or by visiting myvaccine.fl.gov. All eligible individuals will be contacted by phone, email or text when an appointment is available for them.
“We are thrilled to be able to serve even more Broward County residents as we work with Broward County, Broward Sheriff’s Office, municipalities, municipal law enforcement and EMS/Fire-Rescue to protect our community against COVID-19,” Department of Health in Broward County Health Officer Dr. Paula Thaqi said. “The expansion of the priority groups is yet
another critical step in combatting the virus in Broward County and in the state of Florida.”
DOH-Broward is working with partners to expand vaccination sites to continue serving eligible populations. The Department will provide updates to the public as these plans are finalized.
