WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — The Florida Department of Health in Wakulla County and the Wakulla County Emergency Management Division announced Thursday that the statewide preregistration system to schedule COVID-19 vaccines is now available to Wakulla County residents.

The statewide preregistration system officially launched on Jan. 29, but some counties like neighboring Leon had to wait weeks before it was actually implemented.

People can now pre-register for vaccines and be notified when appointments are available in their area by clicking here or by calling (866) 201-7331 if they do not have access to the internet.

This website will allow individuals who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to be proactively contacted when vaccine appointments are available in the county, the health department said.

On the site, residents can select Wakulla County and submit their contact information.

Once appointments are available, people will be contacted by phone call, text or email and will be helped in scheduling an appointment.

The health department added that vaccine supply remains limited and appointments may not be available for several weeks.
