COVID-19 Vaccine Update

December 29, 2020

COVID-19 Vaccine for Leon County 

***Updated***  January 19, 2021

 

Thank you for contacting the Florida Department of Health in Leon County (DOH-Leon), and for your interest in the COVID-19 Vaccine.

The Florida Department of Health in Leon County (DOH-Leon) is working closely with community partners to fulfill a large waitlist of individuals 65 years and older who have requested an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Since late December, DOH-Leon has received some 19,000 requests for vaccine appointments. Staff at DOH-Leon and community partners are scheduling appointments as quickly as possible, based on vaccine availability. 

After all of these requests have been fulfilled, future appointments will be made available through a new registration process. Details will be provided as soon as they are finalized. 

Our local vaccine appointment request line is currently full and closed for COVID-19 vaccine requests as we work to transition to the new appointment system.

Vaccination appointments are based on availability. We are currently working with the Leon County Division of Emergency Management to increase our ability to contact residents.

 **No vaccines will be given without an appointment. Please do not show up at any of our Florida Department of Health locations for a vaccine, or to request an appointment.
