COVID-19 Resources & Vaccine Updates
Vaccine News:

At present time, the Florida Department of Health in Collier County does not have the COVID-19 vaccine. DOH Lee County is currently in the process of their first stage of vaccination to healthcare workers, as well as to the public ages 65+.

Physicians who have hospital privileges should contact their respective medical staff offices for information on getting vaccinated.

For physicians without hospital privileges, when DOH Collier receives the vaccine, their plan will be similar to DOH Lee County: healthcare workers must take their ID badge or paystub, etc. to the vaccination site to identify themselves as healthcare workers. Vaccinations will be given along with those aged 65+ on a first come, first served basis. However, DOH Collier plans to also have one day for healthcare workers only, by appointment, for those who are seeing patients on the days public sites are open for vaccination.

Please note: The vaccine rollout is part of a nationwide effort and there will not be any exclusions based on residency. Registration will take place at the time of vaccine administration. There will be no cost. Supplies will be limited. Information will be posted at collier.floridahealth.gov and floridahealthcovid19.gov, and will be announced in CCMS emails and on our Facebook group pages: Physicians | Practice Administrators/Office Staff.

We also encourage physician practices to register to have the vaccine in their offices when it comes to that time, whether simply for yourselves and your staff, or also for patients.
