COVID-19 Vaccine Guide: How to Get Vaccinated in Miami-Dade & Broward Counties

Seniors over the age of 65 and frontline health care workers have first priority in receiving the vaccine.

NBC Universal, Inc.

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.

It is required to show proof of Florida residency to receive your first dose of the vaccine. This can be a copy of a valid Florida driver's license, or a copy of a valid Florida identification card. Seasonal residents are also eligible to receive vaccinations. Click here for more information.

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 everything you need to know about getting vaccinated in Miami-Dade and Broward County, as well as vaccination options across the state.

Editor's note: Due to high demand and limited supply of the COVID-19 vaccine, appointment slots get filled up quickly. Please check back periodically for openings.


Who has priority on vaccination appointments?

At the direction of the federal government, any retailers participating in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program are required to prioritize all K-12, child care teachers and personnel for vaccine appointments until further notice.

Among those elegible are:

  • Teachers, school staff and child care workers who work in pre-primary, primary and secondary schools, as well as Head Start and Early Head Start programs. This includes teachers, staff and bus drivers.
  • Those who work as or for licensed child care providers, including center-based and family care providers.

Publix is set to follow this new directive during its next available COVID‑19 vaccine scheduling opportunity on Wednesday, March 10th.

To find out if you're elegible to receive the COVID vaccine: click here.

Beginning Monday, March 15th all Florida residents ages 60 and older are eligible for the vaccine.


Can I pre-register for a vaccination appointment?

Yes. State health officials have launched a new system where eligible residents can pre-register for a vaccination appointment and be notified when appointments in their area become available.

You must be 65 years or older or a frontline health care worker in order to pre-register for vaccination appointments. After entering your county of residence and contact information, you will be contacted by phone, text, or e-mail when appointments become available, according to the Florida Department of Health.

Visit myvaccine.fl.gov to sign up. Additionally, each county has a designated phone number that individuals can call and pre-register if they do not have Internet access. The complete list of numbers by county can be found here.
