Florida residents have numerous options that they can choose from to get their COVID-19 vaccination shots.
Health officials are urging people to get vaccinated as COVID-19 cases continue to rise among the unvaccinated. If you wish to get vaccinated, here are the options available for you:
All Florida Counties
The Florida Department of Health launched hotlines for all 67 counties. You can view the complete list of toll-free numbers on the FDH's official website. You will be notified via email if you've been scheduled for a shot, according to Sun Sentinel.
If you wish to search for available vaccine locations near you, you can log in to vaccines.gov, a website that the federal government launched. It will search vaccine sites across the United States by location down to 1 mile from a vaccine site and your zip code.
You can also send a text. Just text your zip code to GETVAX for English or VACUNA for Spanish so you can get a list of locations that administer vaccine shots.
You will also get a notification if it is time for your second COVID-19 vaccination shot.
