Don’t have access to a computer or prefer to get help with COVID-19 vaccine registration? Below is a list of phone numbers for Florida vaccine hotlines.

They are categorized by scheduling; TTY or a special device that lets people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech-impaired use the phone to communicate via text messages; and help lines.

This month, Gov. Ron DeSantis has ramped up age eligibility for the vaccines at any of the more than 1,000 vaccination sites across the state:

• March 15, people ages 60 and older could get the shot(s).

• March 22, those 50 and older became eligible.

Here’s where people age 50 and older can get Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson vaccine

• On March 29, people 40 and up can register for a vaccine.

Helpful guide: People 40 and older can get COVID-19 vaccines starting March 29

• On April 5, the age requirement drops to 18 and older.

Things to know: People 18 and up can get Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson shot starting April 5

Florida officials launched a statewide preregistration system to help schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for residents 50 and older and front-line health care workers.

Individuals can preregister for vaccine appointments and be notified when appointments are available in their area. Visit https://myvaccine.fl.gov/#/ myvaccine.fl.gov.

For seniors still waiting, age drop for vaccine ‘doesn’t make sense’ for anyone

As part of the statewide registration system, each county has a designated phone number that individuals can call and preregister if they do not have internet access. The statewide preregistration system also provides each county with a designated help line number. This help line will connect individuals directly with an operator to answer questions on the preregistration system.
