HOW YOU CAN GET VACCINATED

Delivery of the vaccine will be “start-and-stop” until additional supplies are received. Local communities have no control over the supply of vaccine received. By Executive Order from the Governor, vaccinations in Florida currently may only be given to first responders, seniors age 65+ and those that hospitals deem highly vulnerable.

Vaccination appointments are required at all vaccination sites and can be made online at BrowardCovidVaccine.com. If you are eligible for the first wave of vaccine, follow DOH-Broward on Twitter at @FLHealthBroward. Alternatively, watch news reports and check the DOH-Broward appointment scheduler website to schedule an appointment during periods of availability. The website will not be available if there are no open appointment times.

None of the six DOH-Broward sites is currently accepting new appointments. The following hospitals are also vaccinating but have no open appointments at this time: Cleveland Clinic, Memorial Healthcare, Broward Health and Holy Cross Health. Florida Medical Center is in Phase 1 of its vaccination plan, which includes vaccinating front line staff and physicians. Planning is underway for community vaccinations, as soon as more vaccine doses become available.
