DAVIE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Health in Broward County (DOH-Broward) is now included in the new State COVID-19 vaccine phone appointment scheduling system. Appointments for DOH-Broward COVID-19 vaccination sites can be scheduled using the system starting immediately.
Seniors ages 65 and older, and frontline healthcare workers can call 866-201-6313 to request an appointment. For those requiring TTY access, the phone number is 833-476-1526.
Individuals calling the appointment number will be asked through an automated system to enter their information using the telephone keypad. Live agents will call people back to make appointments until all current appointments are filled.
Please note that individuals who receive their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at DOH-Broward sites through this new appointment system will be asked to schedule their second dose through this new system.
People who received their first dose of vaccine at a DOH-Broward site without making an appointment in this new appointment system do not need to make an appointment for their second dose. They should return to the same site on the date written on their vaccination card at the same time as they arrived for their first dose. Other than these individuals receiving their second dose, no one will be served without an appointment.
Appointment availability will vary from day to day and week to week. For information about DOH-Broward, visit http://broward.floridahealth.gov.
