Miami-Dade County to launch limited number of COVID-19 vaccine appointments
Today, Miami-Dade County will release a limited number of COVID-19 vaccine appointments available to seniors age 65 and older, according to state vaccine guidelines. The appointments will be available through a scheduling tool at miamidade.gov/vaccine.
Demand for vaccines is currently much greater than existing supply, and Miami-Dade County is working hard to make vaccines available to the community as fast as new supplies are received.
“We are in an emergency, and we need to distribute COVID-19 vaccines without delay to protect our community and keep our economy moving forward,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “As County Mayor, my priority is to work with all our partners to get vaccinations to eligible residents as fast possible, and today we are proud to offer a limited number of vaccine appointments available to seniors 65+ in our community.”
"In collaboration with the state, hospitals, cities, and other partners, we are working to rapidly scale up distribution of vaccines to our most vulnerable. Please continue to check miamidade.gov/vaccine for information about where vaccines are currently available.”
Miami-Dade will be opening a limited number of COVID-19 vaccine appointments for seniors 65+ starting Thursday, January 7 at 2 p.m. at miamidade.gov/vaccine. The website is also available in Spanish at miamidade.gov/vacuna and in Haitian Creole at miamidade.gov/vaksen.
