COVID-19 Vaccine

Miami-Dade County is coordinating closely with hospital and healthcare partners, the State of Florida, cities, and private partners to vaccinate members of our community against the coronavirus (COVID-19) as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible.

The following individuals that live in Florida may receive the COVID-19 vaccine as outlined in the Governor's Executive Order:
  • Long-term care facility residents and staff
  • Persons 65 years of age and older
  • Health care personnel with direct patient contact
  • K-12 school employees 50 years of age and older
  • Sworn law enforcement officers 50 years of age and older
  • Firefighters 50 years of age and older
Additionally, hospital providers, and licensed physicians, may vaccinate people whom they deem to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19. Licensed nurses and pharmacists may also administer the vaccine to those deemed to be extremely vulnerable by a doctor.

Vaccine Updates
Miami-Dade County has a pre-registration system for eligible vaccine recipients to sign up to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as supplies become available. Pre-register online here or by calling 305-614-2014.

Emergency Order

To ensure vaccines are equitably distributed across all communities and no one is left behind, Mayor Daniella Levine Cava signed Emergency Order 32-20 (HTML | PDF) giving the County greater oversight of vaccination in Miami-Dade.

Hospital systems and all entities administering the vaccine are now required to publish daily updates on their progress. The order also states that hospital systems and entities providing vaccines should not provide appointments unless they have already received vaccine doses and have a good forecast of the number of people they'll be able to vaccinate.
