Health Department Announces Ages 50 and Up May Now Schedule COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment
March 19, 2021
Brooksville, Fla.— The CDR Maguire Health & Medical patient portal will go live to book COVID-19 vaccine appointments, this Sunday, March 21, at 3 p.m. for Floridians age 50 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 or identification showing employment status for a qualifying priority group.
The health department has received 1,500 total doses of the vaccine, to be administered in the following 2, 750-dose blocks:
- March 23rd from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. at the Hernando County Fairgrounds (6436 Broad St., Brooksville, FL. 34601)
- March 24th 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 March 21, 2021. 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:
- Online by CDR HealthPro™ portal at patientportalfl.com
- By phone at (844) 770-8548
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.
