Florida has launched a statewide website that allows you to pre-register for your vaccine appointment if you meet the qualifications.
Simply select your county and fill out the information and you will be placed in line for a vaccine appointment when it becomes available.
For those who do not have Internet access, you can also pre-register by phone. To find the designated number for your county, visit the hotline site.
The following populations of Florida Residents are currently eligible to schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine:
- Individuals 65 years of age and older
- Long-term facility residents and staff
- Healthcare personnel with direct patient contact
- Individuals deemed to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 by hospital providers

Anyone who pre-registers for a vaccine appointment will be notified when slots become available at state-supported vaccination sites in their county, according to the Florida Division of Emergency Management, which is tasked with the state’s vaccine distribution. Once you get an appointment, you will need to show proof that you are a Florida resident.
“Vaccine supply remains limited and appointments may not be available for several weeks in some counties,” the Florida Division of Emergency Management said in a news release.
The website also shows you a list of state-supported sites by county.
If your county does not have any state-run sites listed, you can still sign up for the wait list to be notified when a site becomes available. Keep in mind that the website is an opt-in system open to all 67 counties. This means your county needs to sign up with the state to be included in the system.
While there is a state residency requirement, there is no county requirement. That means someone who lives in Brevard or Orange can pre-register to get the vaccine in Volusia, or vice versa.
