Starting today, February 19, 2021, Walton County is joining the statewide pre-registration system to schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for individuals 65 and older and frontline health care workers.
To preregister and be notified when vaccine appointments are available, visit https://myvaccine.fl.gov/. Florida residency is required.
The myvaccine.fl.gov website allows individuals who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to be proactively contacted when vaccine appointments are available in the county. On the site, residents can select Walton 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.
“We are excited to be a part of this registration process to ensure that all our citizens have access to obtaining an appointment for a Covid 19 vaccination “ said Holly Holt, Health Officer and Administrator. “This registration system will work for those that have computer access and those that don’t, and that is very important as we strive to reach all of our community”.
Additionally, as part of the statewide preregistration system, each county has a designated number that individuals can call and pre-register if they do not have internet access. Walton County’s designated number is 866-201-3054. The statewide preregistration system also provides each county with a designated help line number. This help line will connect individuals directly with an operator and answer questions regarding the preregistration system. Walton County’s help line number is 833-540-2079.
