Covid 19 Vaccine Appointments

The Florida Department of Health in Nassau County (DOH-Nassau) has received a very limited supply of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to be made available under the federal Emergency Use Authorization to the target groups prioritized by the Governor.
Please review the Moderna Vaccine Fact Sheet, the What to Expect Card, and Vaccine Screening and Consent Form very carefully before continuing.

  • If you answer YES to any question in Section 2 of the Consent Form, you may need to postpone scheduling an appointment.
  • If you answer YES to any question in Section 3 of the Consent Form, or are pregnant or nursing, please consult with your physician or personal healthcare provider prior to requesting a vaccination appointment.

Appointments are required for ALL individuals seeking vaccination.
Walk-in requests for appointments or individuals who arrive at a DOH-Nassau clinic without first making an appointment will not be vaccinated.
Only ONE person per appointment is permitted. Couples and family members must each make a separate appointment.
Our goal is to safely vaccinate each prioritized group as soon as vaccine doses are available locally.

Nassau’s current vaccination scheduling process is:

  1. Verify that you are in one of the currently prioritized groups:
    a. Healthcare Providers with direct patient contact
    b. Residents who are 65 years of age or older
  2. Read the Moderna Vaccine Fact Sheet, the What to Expect Card, and Vaccine Screening and Consent Form
  3. Download, review, and sign the Vaccine Screening and Consent Form
  4. If you are in a prioritized group and have reviewed the vaccine screening and consent form, click the button below to obtain an EventBrite Order Number (an “E-Ticket” will be e-mailed to you) allowing you to schedule one of the limited upcoming appointment slots with DOH-Nassau. If there is no “Get a Ticket” button to click, all tickets for the current allotment have been claimed – please check back tomorrow or sign up to be notified by text message when more are available (text the keyword NassauSafe to 888777)
  5. Once you have received your E-Ticket, a dose of vaccine has been allotted for your appointment! Follow the instructions in the EventBrite e-mail to schedule your individual appointment time with DOH-Nassau.
  6. On the date of your scheduled appointment:
    a. Make sure you have your valid ID that shows you 65 years of age or older.
    b. If you are a healthcare worker, take your employee ID badge.
    c. Make sure you have your completed and signed Consent Form – if you were unable to print your Consent Form, you will have to review and sign the document during your appointment.
    d. You will be required to wear a face mask covering your nose and mouth at all times while at the clinic. Social distancing will also be required.
    e. Please arrive at the clinic address provided on the E-Ticket 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.

I am wondering who actually got an appointment to be vaccinated? This is the very first announcement from the Health Dept. on how to get vaccinated, you need an appointment and THEY HAVE NO APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE! I would love the Observer to investigate how many doses Nassau County received and what groups were actually able to make appointments . . . does the Health Dept. have an idea about when new doses will be available? Will they take the forms and save them in order of submission to make new appointments as the doses are available? OR do we just wait for the next announcement and get disappointed again because somehow, some people have had advance notice to make an appointment?

Along with Peggy Bulger, I have lots of questions! Today, we are getting a notice to sign up for something that does not actually exist. This notification is coming to light via the FO but not via any One Nassau notifications on smart phones. Complete and in depth answers need to be provided for the sake of accountability and transparency. Among other questions, was no Pfizer vaccine delivered/offered here in Nassau when it arrived in Florida? If not, why not? Who has been vaccinated in Nassau County, if anyone, such that our county has already run out of appointments? Exactly how many vials/shots of Moderna have been delivered? Exactly who got them? How did some folks know about appointments and manage to fill all the slots available but none of the rest of us in the county knew to where or how sign up until all the first-round slots were taken? I ask these questions because, like many other residents, my 90-year-old friends who live in a care facility here in Nassau and they have not been vaccinated despite the fact they seem to be in the highest priority group after medical staff, first responders and care staff. They have yet to be told when they might get vaccinated. Likewise, it is not clear that the staff members at my friend’s care facility has been vaccinated. My folks shared with me they were notified this week that two members of the staff at their facility tested positive for the virus this week. We also have a family member who has asthma. Are these types of medical conditions a priority for vaccination? Does Nassau County have a different priority schedule than elsewhere for the state? If yes, where is that information published? Anxious residents, their friends and family members all deserve clear answers especially with the rapid rise in case numbers in our county and throughout our state.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
