The Riley House was constructed circa 1890 on the fringe of an African American community called Smokey Hollow. Its owner, John Gilmore Riley, was born in 1857 on a plantation in what is now downtown Tallahassee. Mr. Riley rose to prominence as an educator and civic leader and in 1892 he became principal of the Lincoln Academy where he served until his retirement in 1926.

Questions about the new registration system?
Call 833-540-2054
Please be sure to check with your primary care physician
about availability as well!

The COVID-19 vaccine is available to seniors age 65 years and over in Leon County. However, updates and improvements are being made the online registration site.

The Florida Department of Health in Leon County (DOH Leon) is included in the new statewide COVID-19 vaccine pre-registration system. At this time, the department is working with our community partners and finalizing plans to transition to the new appointment system.

The changes to come will not impact individuals who have made vaccine requests through the DOH Leon COVID-19 call center or registered a vaccine request online.

  • Leon County residents 65 and over can sign up now by visiting myvaccine.fl.gov (Note: it may be weeks before the new system is implemented and you get a vaccine appointment)
  • Those without internet access can register by calling 866-200-3856
  • For those requiring TTY access, the phone number is 833-476-1455
