Tavares – In a continued effort to keep the public informed, Lake County is pleased to announce that the State of Florida’s streamlined platform is now available to Florida residents searching for locations offering COVID-19 immunization appointments. Eligible residents can preregister at myvaccine.fl.gov to be contacted when an appointment becomes available.
The website, powered by Sharecare, reminds Florida residents that vaccines are in limited supply and outlines the State’s weekly distribution plan for Florida counties determined by the Federal Government’s allocations to the State. Residents should check the site often as additional appointment timeslots and immunization locations are updated on a regular basis.
The County has received reports of callers impersonating the State’s Sharecare scheduling system and residents are urged not to share sensitive data like payment information. The COVID-19 immunization is free, and residents are not required to provide their social security numbers or insurance information.
More information regarding COVID-19 immunization is available by phone at 866-201-6909 (or 833-476-1031 for TTY users).
