Indian River County launched a new COVID-19 vaccine registration system through Everbridge on Friday, February 5, 2021.

Florida residents who are 65 years and older or are frontline healthcare workers can now register for the waitlist. To sign up, eligible residents should complete the online registration form.

Residents who need technical assistance with online registration or do not have Internet access can also register by calling our call center (772) 226-4000, which is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.

Appointments are scheduled based on the availability of the vaccine and the date an individual registered. Registrants will only be notified when the vaccine has been received by the Department of Health in Indian River County, and there is an available appointment for them.

Based on the contact information provided during registration, the system will send appointment notifications via call, text, and/or email.

Individuals will be asked to confirm the appointment date and time or decline if they are not available for the appointment window that has been offered. Declining will not remove the person from the queue.

Their place in the queue will be held, and they will receive another notification as soon as the next appointments are made available. Appointment notifications will expire four hours after the notification is issued. 

If the notification expires without a response, then that person will be placed back into their original place in the queue and will receive another notification as soon as the next appointments are made available.

Information on Florida residency requirements for receiving the vaccine, what to bring to an appointment, and other Frequently Asked Questions is available online HERE.
