The Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County (DOH Sarasota) will begin offering vaccinations to front line health care workers and seniors age 65 and older by appointment only beginning today. DOH Sarasota will have 150 COVID-19 vaccines today, and appointments are required. Additional locations will be announced when more numbers of vaccines and vaccinators become available.
To get vaccinated, you must be a front line health care worker (employment ID required) or age 65 or older, and must remain in Sarasota County to receive your second-round shot, which occurs 28 days after the first appointment. You must download and complete the Department of Health COVID-19 Vaccine Screening and Consent Form and bring it to your specific appointment time in order to be vaccinated. The consent form, registration ticket and a valid ID need to be shown at the appointment.
Vaccinations will take place at the William L. Little Health and Human Services Building, 2200 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota. Florida's daily vaccine report will be issued here. If you are in the priority group, click here to register for a specific appointment time.
