Hernando County to open COVID-19 vaccination appointment portal on February 28 to residents age 65 and older

By Ashley D. Thomas, Public Information Officer

February 24, 2021

Brooksville, Fla.— The CDR Maguire Health & Medical patient portal will go live to book COVID-19 vaccine appointments, this Sunday, February 28, at 3 p.m. for Floridians age 65 or older who would like to schedule an appointment for the first dose of the vaccine.

Appointments are required to get the vaccine. Walkups will not be accommodated. Those receiving the vaccine will be required to provide documentation of age such as a driver’s license, government-issued ID, birth certificate or passport.

 

The health department has received 1,500 total doses of the vaccine, to be administered in the following 2, 750-dose blocks:

 

  • March 2nd from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. at the Hernando County Fairgrounds (6436 Broad St., Brooksville, FL. 34601)
  • March 3rd from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. at the Hernando County Fairgrounds (6436 Broad St., Brooksville, FL. 34601)

The Hernando County appointment portal will go live at 3 p.m. on February 28th. People can then schedule their appointments in one of the above slots on a first come, first served basis using the two options shown below:

 

Recently, the State of Florida released information about a pre-registration system at myvaccine.fl.gov. This site is independent of Sunday’s signup for Hernando County appointments for vaccines. Registering at that site DOES NOT REPLACE signing up at the Patient Portal as the site is not yet in use in Hernando County.You must register and log into www.patientportalfl.com to register for the appointments that will go live Sunday.

 

Hernando County expects to receive allocations of vaccine from the state as it is made available. Vaccination appointments will be provided to the public based on the vaccine supply allocation received. Limited availability of vaccines is anticipated over the next several weeks.
