Miami-Dade County is coordinating closely with hospital and healthcare partners, the Florida Department of Health, municipalities, and private partners to vaccinate members of our community against the coronavirus (COVID-19) as quickly and efficiently as possible.
According to state guidelines, the top priority for vaccination – following long-term care residents and staff and frontline healthcare workers – are those who live in Miami-Dade County age 65 and older.
We are working hard to add new vaccine appointments for seniors 65+ as additional vaccines become available. Check here for an available appointment.
I called the telephone number to request a first dose appointment. What happens next?
If you called to request a first dose appointment, you will be called within 48 hours to the phone number you called from. An agent will make at least two attempts to reach you by phone to assist you to schedule your first dose appointment.
Vaccinations are by appointment only and walk-ups will not be accepted.
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.
