Broward JIC Snapshot #7: Scheduling a Vaccination Appointment by Phone
EASY NEW WAY TO SCHEDULE A VACCINATION APPOINTMENT!
The Florida Department of Health in Broward (DOH-Broward) is now included in the State’s COVID-19 vaccine telephone appointment scheduling system. Appointments for COVID-19 vaccination sites operated by DOH-Broward can be scheduled using the new system starting immediately. Seniors age 65+ and frontline healthcare workers can call 866-201-6313 to request an appointment. For those requiring TTY access, the number is 833-476-1526.
When people call the appointment number, they will be asked via an automated system to enter information using their telephone keypad. Live agents will call people back to make appointments until all current appointments are filled.
People 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 the new system.
People who received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at DOH-Broward sites 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.
