Publix reopens vaccine appointment registration Monday in Florida – Tampa Bay Times

Publix will be opening another round of registrations for coronavirus vaccine appointments in Florida after 7 a.m. EST Monday, according to the company’s website.

Appointments will be available online only and cannot be made by phone. The past week, the company received more than 27,000 vaccine doses from state and federal governments to distribute across nearly 600 locations throughout 41 Florida counties.

The company’s vaccination efforts began with a Florida pilot program across 22 stores starting Jan. 7, using the Moderna vaccine. The grocery chain has distributed 250,000 vaccines statewide and a total of 300,000 vaccines when including shots administered at its Georgia, South Carolina and Virginia locations.

Those who receive their first dose of the vaccine through Publix will automatically be registered for a second dose at the same location four weeks later.

Vaccinations will be provided at no cost to the patient. Those receiving their vaccine at Publix should bring their health insurance card or red, white and blue Medicare Part B card. Patients without insurance should bring their driver’s license or Social Security number.
