COVID-19 Vaccine Preregistration System

Florida Dept of Health flyer on what items to bring with you to your vaccination appointmentFlorida officials have launched a statewide preregistration system to help schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for residents 65 and older and front-line health care workers. Residents can pre-register for vaccine appointments and be notified when appointments are available in their area.  

To use the service for Brevard County, call 866-201-5420 (or 833-476-1525 for TTY users or those with hearing or speech difficulties).  You can also go online to myvaccine.fl.gov.  

There is also a help line in Brevard County to get questions answered on the pre-registration system.  The help line number is 833-540-2041.

Here’s how the state preregistration process works:

  • The myvaccine.fl.gov website will allow individuals who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to be proactively contacted when vaccine appointments are available at state-supported vaccination sites.
  • On the site, residents can select their county, and submit their contact information.
  • Once appointments are available, individuals will be contacted by phone call, text or email, and will be assisted in scheduling an appointment.

The Sharecare software will reserve a person’s place in line, whether a resident calls or goes to the website to preregister. Eligible categories of residents include:

  • Long-term-care facility residents and staff.
  • Persons 65 years of age and older.
  • Health care personnel with direct patient contact.

If someone does not meet these eligibility requirements, he or she will not be able to preregister.

See flyer from the Florida Department of Health for the appropriate documents you will need to bring with you to your appointment.
