Miami-Dade County is coordinating closely with hospital and healthcare partners, the Florida Department of Health, municipalities, and private partners to vaccinate members of our community against the coronavirus (COVID-19) as quickly and efficiently as possible. According to state guidelines, the top priority for vaccination – following long-term care residents and staff and frontline healthcare workers – are those who live in Miami-Dade County age 65 and older. Miami-Dade County is working hard to add new vaccine appointments for seniors 65+ as additional vaccines become available. Check here for an available appointment.

Second Dose Appointments
Miami-Dade County is in the process of scheduling second dose appointments for seniors 65+. Those who received their first dose vaccine at a Miami-Dade vaccination site will receive an email or text to schedule their second appointment during the week of the date on the CDC card received at your first appointment. Those who do not respond to the email or text will be contacted by phone to schedule the second dose appointment.

Vaccinations are by appointment only and walk-ups will not be accepted.

The first three groups to receive the vaccine according to current state guidance are

1. Long-term care facility residents and staff

2. Persons 65 years of age and older
