Caribbean-American seniors in Broward County can now make appointments to receive their COVID-19 vaccine by calling a new phone number.
The Florida Health Department in Broward announced that seniors over 65 years and healthcare workers can schedule appointments by calling 866-201-6313. For those requiring TTY access, the phone number is 833-476-1526.
These vaccinations will be done at any of the six DOH-Broward COVID-19 vaccination sites.
The health department said that at this time, the only way to request an appointment is by calling the phone number. Appointments were previously made through the BrowardCovidVaccine.com website.
People who call and request an appointment in the system will receive a call back when an appointment is available for them.
The department advised that for residents who have already received the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at a DOH-Broward site, they should return to the same site on the date written on their vaccination card at the same time they arrived for their first dose. Do not call to make an appointment for the second dose.
