State Surgeon General Scott A. Rivkees, M.D. issued a Florida Department of Health Public Health Advisory on January 21, 2021, prioritizing Florida residents for receiving vaccine in Florida. Prior to providing the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine to an intended recipient, each vaccine provider in Florida should ensure the recipient of the vaccine is either a) a resident of Florida or b) an individual present in Florida for the purpose of providing health care services involving direct contact with patients. Residency requirements are defined in Florida Statutes 381.986(5)(b) and do provide some accommodation of seasonal residents. Individuals who received a first dose before the Public Health Advisory will receive a second dose.

BE A VACCINE AMBASSADOR
If you’re one of the many, many Broward County residents who has already gotten their vaccine, you can be an ambassador for those that are vaccine hesitant. Share your experience with those who have not had the vaccine. If your family, friends and neighbors don’t have a personal health reason or physician’s recommendation NOT to take the vaccine, help educate them on the safety of the vaccine, and importance of achieving “herd immunity” so all our lives can return to normal.

Know Before You Go
Demand for the COVID-19 vaccine is far in excess of the supply the state has received so far. It is anticipated that additional supplies will be coming soon.
Florida has many sites that are providing COVID-19 vaccines, but supplies are limited and appointments may not be available at many of these sites.
Please be aware that some locations are only serving very specific populations, such as frontline health care workers.
Appointments may be required and vaccine availability will vary from day to day and week to week as we work to provide vaccines to the most vulnerable first.
Vaccination is being provided by hospital partners to eligible residents. Schedule through a participating hospital.
