FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IN ESCAMBIA COUNTY PARTICIPATES IN STATEWIDE PREREGISTRATION SYSTEM FOR COVID-19 VACCINE APPOINTMENTS
February 02, 2021
Pensacola, Fla. – On January 29, 2021, the state announced that the statewide preregistration system to schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for individuals 65 and older and frontline health care workers, is now available to Escambia County residents. The Florida Department of Emergency Management (FDEM) has partnered with ShareCare Health Data Services to schedule vaccination appointments and register eligible residents.
The Florida Department of Health in Escambia County (FDOH-Escambia) is continuing to work through the list of individuals who completed the online interest form. Beginning February 5, 2021, FDOH-Escambia will sync the information from the online interest form with the system managed by FDEM. Residents who have completed FDOH-Escambia’s online interest form do not need to call or email to confirm their registration.
Escambia County residents who have not already completed the online interest form should use the statewide preregistration system to sign up. Residents can call the toll-free line at, 866-201-1025 or register online at myvaccine.fl.gov. The TTY number for the deaf and hard of hearing is 833-476-1461. Registrants will be notified when appointments are available in their area. The State has established a help line at 833-959-0217 for those who need to make changes to their original pre-registration.
It is important to note that registering multiple times does not increase your chances of getting an appointment. Attempts to register in multiple counties is not allowed. Duplicate registrations will be removed and ShareCare will keep the most recent county registration for the person with multiple entries.
This registration system will proactively contact vaccine-eligible individuals to schedule appointments when they are available in the county. On the website, residents can select Escambia County and submit their contact information. Once appointments are available, individuals will be contacted by phone call, text or email and will be assisted in scheduling an appointment.
Vaccine supply remains limited and appointments may not be available for several weeks.
