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.
Individuals 18 years of age or older who live in Florida may receive the COVID-19 vaccine as outlined in the Governor's Executive Order. Minors 16 and 17 years of age may receive the Pfizer vaccine but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to the vaccination site.
- Appointments are no longer required to receive the vaccine at one of the County drive-thru vaccination sites – Tropical Park, Zoo Miami and the Homestead Sports Complex. For a faster registration process on-site, residents are encouraged to sign up online for appointments available both same-day and in coming days or by calling 305-614-2014.
- The Johnson & Johnson one-dose vaccine is being offered at the Miami Dade College North Campus. The CDC and FDA advises women younger than 50 years old to be aware of the rare risk of blood clots with low platelets after vaccination, and that other COVID-19 vaccines are available where this risk has not been seen.
- Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, United Way of Miami-Dade and Uber formed a partnership to provide more than 20,000 free Uber rides to vaccination sites. Please review the Instructions for Using Uber in Miami-Dade flyer. Rides must begin or end at an approved vaccine site.
- Homebound individuals can register online to be contacted to schedule a vaccination appointment at home. For more information, call 833-930-3672 or email [email protected].

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.
