DOH-CITRUS PARTICIPATES IN STATEWIDE PREREGISTRATION SYSTEM FOR COVID-19 VACCINE
January 29, 2021
The Florida Department of Health in Citrus County (DOH-Citrus) announced that the statewide preregistration system to schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for individuals 65 and older and frontline health care workers, is now available to Citrus County residents.
Individuals can now be added to a waiting list for vaccine appointments and be notified when appointments are available in Citrus County by visiting myvaccine.fl.gov or by calling 866-201-0442 TTY 833-476-1036.
“We are ecstatic to be a part of this new system and we know this has been highly anticipated and requested by our residents,” said DOH-Citrus Administrator Tito Rubio. "We want to thank everyone for their patience with us as we continue to distribute the vaccine out as quickly as we can, and we ask for more patience because supply will continue to be an issue,” said Rubio. “Residents will still have to wait for vaccines and appointments to become available, but we know this system will provide some peace of mind to our residents to know they made it on the list and that they will be getting a vaccine.”
This website will allow individuals who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to be proactively contacted when vaccine appointments are available in the county. On the site, residents can select Citrus County and submit their contact information.
Once appointments are available, individuals will be contacted through the system (not by DOH-Citrus) by phone call, text or email and will be assisted in scheduling an appointment. Please do not call DOH-Citrus to check the status of your preregistration. When vaccines and appointments are available, you will be notified.
Vaccine supply remains limited and appointments may not be available for several weeks.
The statewide preregistration system also provides each county with a designated help line number to correct information that has been submitted incorrectly into the preregistration system. Citrus County’s help line number is 833-540-2058.
