Florida has officially launched a statewide system for residents 65 and older and frontline medical workers to preregister for coronavirus vaccine appointments.

The state says registrants will be contacted by phone, text or email when vaccine appointments are available in their county and assisted in making appointments to receive their shot. The website is myvaccine.fl.gov.

For anyone who doesn’t have internet access, each county has a phone number where residents can preregister. That list can be accessed by a friend or relative here.
