February 23, 2021

Editor’s Note: At this time, we have no knowledge of which group Governor DeSantis will designate for receiving the next phase of vaccines. According to various news reports. he has hinted at providing the vaccine to emergency service workers,and teachers.

Per the Governor’s Executive Order #20-315, county allocations of vaccine can only be used for “seniors first” and licensed health care providers with direct patient care responsibilities.
  • Our Points of Dispensing outside of the Department of Health Clinics are ONLY for residents over 65 years of age.
  • Please do NOT register anyone on the OneNassau Vaccine Waitlist unless they are in the age group currently targeted for vaccination.
  • Licensed health care providers can schedule their appointments directly through the Department of Health.
  • Persons with underlying health conditions that put them at high-risk for complications from CoViD-19 are not included in the Governor’s prioritized group.
  • Some hospitals and physicians have their own vaccine resources and may be able to vaccinate their most at-risk patients.
