Appointments can no longer be made via telephone. A driver’s license or healthcare badge is required at time of appointment. You do not have to be a Brevard County or state of Florida resident to be eligible. Please review the COVID Vaccine Fact Sheet and screening questions on the COVID-19 Vaccine Screening and Consent Form prior to your appointment.
If you answer ‘yes’ to some screening questions, you will need to bring a doctor’s note to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. Print and complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Screening and Consent Form to bring to the appointment for more efficient service. The Moderna COVID-19 vaccination series is two doses, given one month apart.
If you receive one dose of the Moderna vaccine, you should receive a second dose of the same vaccine one month later to complete the vaccination series. After vaccination, you will be asked to park nearby for 15 minutes to be monitored for adverse reactions. Please visit “Moderna Facts and Privacy” for additional information on what to expect during and after the vaccination.

Everyone, including those who have received both doses of vaccine, should continue to follow CDC recommendations on wearing face coverings, social distancing, and practicing good hand hygiene.
What a cluster* this will be. One does not have to be a resident for a vaccine. We are in tourist season so get behind someone who doesn’t even live here all year you Florida oldsters (like my 82 y/o dad). DeSantis must keep our tourists and snowbirds happy! You – well you are already here and not going anywhere (unless you can’t get vaccinated)!
Already read about some 54 y/o Canadian man crying about how he is in FL now, is immuno-compromised, and will need to be vaccinated here. Yeah – thanks for coming – Selfish and disgusting!
