After 975 winners of the first round of random drawing received word of their impending vaccination; signing up for at least half of the respondents was filled with frustration. Calls into the call center were met with busy signals, or no signals and some individuals had difficulty with the eventbrite system. Eventually,  some individuals were able to get through to the help desk during the day.

Staff members spent the afternoon calling the random drawing winners who had not yet made appointments. Calls will continue tomorrow according to Information Officer Dave Richardson. “Those that have not [responded] are being called today and tomorrow which will continue until approximately 6:00 p.m. ”   Locations to be assigned for vaccinations will be at  the Florida Department of Health Yulee Clinic or the Yulee Sports Complex.”
