FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IN ESCAMBIA COUNTY SCHEDULES MODERNA VACCINE APPOINTMENTS
January 08, 2021
Pensacola, Fla. – The Florida Department of Health in Escambia County (FDOH-Escambia) is taking part in COVID-19 vaccination efforts that prioritize Moderna immunizations for medical providers at high-risk for COVID-19 exposure and persons 65 years of age or older. We are following the guidance from the Governor’s Executive Order and the DOH State Health Office’s vaccination plan.
FDOH-Escambia received an additional Moderna vaccine allotment. We are in the process of contacting individuals who completed the COVID-19 Vaccination Request Form to schedule appointments. Each form submission includes a time stamp, which is taken into consideration when scheduling appointments.
If you completed the online form and receive a phone call from a State of Florida number, please answer the phone. It could be FDOH-Escambia staff calling to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment.
We continue to encourage residents to take advantage of opportunities offered through other partners to get vaccinated.
The COVID-19 vaccine is a monumental step toward getting this disease under control in Florida, but the department is still encouraging residents and visitors to take all precautions to protect themselves and others from the spread of the virus. These include frequent hand washing, wearing face masks, maintaining six feet of social distancing, and staying home if you are feeling sick.
