  • Health care personnel with direct patient contact;
  • K-12 school and daycare; and
  • Persons determined by a physician to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19
    (Must submit a determination form signed by physician)

Florida residents who fall into any of the above listed categories can obtain an appointment by completing any of the processes listed below:

DOH Jefferson coordinated with local private health care providers to administer the vaccine to their front-line health care workers. Beginning in January 2021, DOH-Jefferson has held vaccination events at the health department. As of March 8, 2021, 4,685 doses have been administered with 2,040 completing the series and more than 56% of those 65 and older have been vaccinated in Jefferson County.

As additional vaccine is made available, the vaccines will be provided to additional groups in a coordinated, orderly and efficient manner to help slow or stop the spread of COVID-19 within the community. DOH-Jefferson does not have information on when additional groups will be eligible as we await the governor’s orders.
