TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Leon County Health Department announced Saturday that the new statewide COVID-19 vaccine preregistration system announced the day before could take weeks to implement in the county.
"Although Leon County residents 65 and over can sign up now by visiting [the website]," said the release. "It may be weeks before we are able to implement the system and for them to get a vaccine appointment."
The changes to come will not impact those who have made vaccine requests through the DOH-Leon COVID-19 call center or registered a vaccine request online, DOH-Leon said.
People who registered in the DOH-Leon system should have received an automated alert on Jan. 8 letting them know their request for an appointment was received.
DOH-Leon said they have representatives following up to notify people who could not be reached.
Those who have already requested a vaccine appointment through DOH-Leon do not need to sign up for the new COVID-19 vaccine waiting list.
