covid vaccine update_web

Governor Ron DeSantis has issued an Executive Order (3/1/21) which expands the populations eligible for vaccination to include K-12 school employees age 50+, sworn law enforcement officers age 50+, and firefighters age 50+. DOH-Broward will be administering these vaccines in collaboration with partners in closed PODS. All other vaccination efforts for seniors 65+ and frontline healthcare workers are continuing. The Governor’s latest Executive Order also clarifies that access to the vaccine for individuals “extremely vulnerable to COVID-19” must be determined by a physician using eligibility criteria defined by the Department of Health. This criteria is still under development. Further details on how this will be implemented in Broward County will be shared as available.

  • Florida Department of Health registration  – Eligible individuals can register for vaccine appointments online at or by calling 866-201-6313 (TTY 833-476-1526). Eligible individuals will be contacted when an appointment is available for them.
