Chasing down a CoViD-19 vaccination?
The Department of Health in Nassau County is now able to provide about 1000 first doses of vaccine each week (dependent on State allotment) to individuals over the age of 65 years and frontline healthcare workers. Vaccinations are administered by appointment only.
To register for an appointment for your first dose, join the vaccine wait-list through the OneNassau.com website.
Each week approximately 1000 registrants are notified via email that a dose is available and to make their appointment. Vaccination event locations are spread around the county to facilitate access for all residents.
- Nassau EM has a call center staffed in the EOC from 0900-1700 hrs. on weekdays to assist residents.
- Your legal first and last name must be registered in order to get a vaccination. (You can use someone else's email, but the legal name of the person who needs vaccinating must be listed.)
- Once you are registered your name will stay on the list until you get your email to schedule your appointment or call the EOC to be removed.
- Do not try to register more than once. Duplicate entries are deleted daily.
- Download, print, and complete the Vaccine Consent Form on the OneNassau.com website - take it and photo identification with you to your appointment.
- Only the person being vaccinated (and one caregiver if required) will be admitted to the vaccination area.
- You must be feeling well to get vaccinated.
- You must wear a facemask covering your nose and mouth while waiting for and throughout your appointment.
- Medical staff will monnitor/observe each person vaccinated for at least 15 minutes post-injection.
The State of Florida has opened a regional vaccination center at the Regency Square Mall in Jacksonville. Call 866-200-3762 to schedule an appointment there.
