PremierMED does not expect to have the Pfizer vaccine for COVID anytime soon, but we will certainly update you all if the situation changes. We will not keep a ‘wait list’ of names.
Distribution of the vaccine in Florida is prioritized for the most vulnerable – those in long-term care facilities and frontline health care workers. It will initially be available at hospitals, Walgreens, and CVS. The vaccine is not mandatory.
We recommend each patient review the CDC website to make an educated decision about getting the vaccine.
Widespread availability of the vaccine is not expected until Spring 2021.
Per the Florida Department of Health, as supply increases the vaccine will eventually become available to all who want it.
When and where vaccines will be made available will be widely communicated and promoted once vaccines become available. There is not a waiting list or pre-registration for receiving the vaccine. Once there is sufficient supply of vaccine available for mass immunization, it is likely that County Health Departments will open Public Mass Vaccination Clinics, and the Department of Health and/or Florida’s Division of Emergency Management might open such clinics to ensure there is equitable distribution of the vaccine.
