Vaccine appointment reservation line now closed: Available FDOH-Lee vaccine doses allocated through Friday
Vaccination appointments for an estimated additional 1,800 people were allocated within minutes today when the newly upgraded reservation line call center reopened to distribute more doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
People can stop calling the reservation line now, Lee County officials said.
By close of business Friday, FDOH and Lee County will have administered 9,000 vaccinations to frontline healthcare workers and 65-plus seniors this week alone.
The state vendor also now has a new Help Line available at 888-499-0851. The Help Line is not able to schedule appointments.
The United Way 2-1-1 hotline remains available for general questions about the vaccination rollout but staffers there do not make reservations. Residents are asked to refrain from calling United Way with specific questions for the reservation vendor.
FDOH-Lee is waiting for information about the next vaccine shipment, and announcements regarding the reopening of the reservation line will be forthcoming.
When vaccinations resume, the county and state will continue to use the site located east of Interstate 75 off of Daniels Parkway at the old airport terminal parking lot. Please note that on Monday, Jan.18, no vaccinations are planned as the state and county observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
