The COVID-19 vaccine is officially here, and if you’re 65 years old or over -- or a frontline health care worker -- you have first priority in receiving an injection in the state of Florida.

If you meet the criteria for receiving a vaccine in Miami-Dade or Broward County, there are several places you can get inoculated. However, due to overwhelming demand and limited supply of the vaccine, appointments are limited.

Officials recommend checking social media pages for the latest information regarding open appointments. Miami-Dade County, for example, regularly posts on Twitter when windows open for vaccinations. (Click here for Miami-Dade County's Twitter, click here for Broward County's Twitter.)

Here’s how you can get vaccinated in Miami-Dade and Broward County. 

Editor's note: Due to high demand, appointment slots get filled up quickly. Please check back periodically for openings.
