According to a release, for upcoming COVID-19 vaccine events coming the week of February 15, the County of Volusia will transition to the state-wide pre-registration system.
At this time, only the state-supported site at the Volusia County Fairgrounds will use this system and vaccinating individuals 65 years of age and older. Individuals should continue to register for other local vaccine events as directed by the vaccine provider.
Sharecare, the state platform, allows individuals to pre-register for vaccination appointments, and get notified when appointments are available in certain areas.
To preregister, individuals should visit myvaccine.fl.gov or call 866-201-7314.
After filling out the pre-registration, individuals will receive a call when vaccine appointments become available. Note that preregistering does not guarantee an appointment and individuals must receive an appointment date and time to report for a vaccine.
Due to limited supply and high demand, individuals may not receive a call regarding an appointment for an extended period. Questions regarding preregistration and appointments should be directed to the state’s Volusia County helpline at 833-540-2077.
While individuals eligible for vaccines in Florida as outlined in Executive Order 20 – 315 may preregister on Sharecare, at this time only those 65 and up will be contacted for an appointment at the Fairgrounds. If someone does not meet these eligibility requirements, they will not be able to preregister but may sign up to receive email updates to learn when they may be eligible for the vaccine.
Per the Florida Department of Health, as of February 8, 55,202 Volusia County residents had received a COVID-19 vaccine.
