Each person receiving the vaccine must sign up for an individual appointment ticket. Due to high demand, tickets online may be "sold" before your sale is complete.  Completed orders display an order number and you will receive a confirmation email.  Tickets are also available by phone until sold out.

    Once you’ve secured your appointment time, please arrive on-time. Individuals arriving early can cause delays and longer lines.As We will issue an update once vacination slots have been filled. As vaccination events and details are finalized, DOH - Okaloosa will release more information on vaccination events.

  • Individuals receiving the vaccine must complete a vaccine screening and consent form to confirm eligibility. These are available on our website. For those that cannot access the forms in advance, a paper copy will be provided at your appointment time.  A valid government-issued ID must be shown at the vaccination site. This can include a passport, driver’s license or military identification card. Non-hospital health care workers with direct patient contact are required to show their badge. People will also need to bring their registration confirmation number.

  • The appointment only vaccination clinic will be drive-thru only, and all individuals will remain in their vehicle for the duration of the clinic. Individuals receiving the vaccine are asked to wear short-sleeve shirts and remove any jackets/coats when arriving.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises individuals to be monitored for at least 15 minutes after receiving the vaccine. Individuals will be directed to a waiting area to park and should plan accordingly.  

    The vaccination provided will be the Pfizer- BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. A second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine is required 21 days after the first dose. You will receive the date for your second dose at the time of your appointment. You will be scheduled for the same location and the same appointment time. This vaccine was authorized for emergency use by the United States Food and Drug Administration under an Emergency Use Authorization.

    According to data released by the Food and Drug Administration, the vaccine made by Pfizer- BioNTech is highly protective for adults and prevents severe cases of COVID-19.  The COVID-19 vaccine is a monumental step toward getting this disease under control in Florida, but the department is still encouraging residents and visitors to take precautions to protect themselves and others from the spread of the virus. These include frequent hand washing, wearing face masks, maintaining six feet of social distancing, and staying home if you are feeling sick.
