Well, in just one hour, all the COVID-19 vaccine appointments in Palm Beach, Indian River, Martin and St. Lucie counties were full on the Publix website.

Publix representatives say about 38,000 appointments were for grabs across the state and were snapped up by 7:00 a.m.

The next window opens on Wednesday at 6 a.m. on the Publix website.
Publix says as of 6:00 this morning about 38,000 appointments were up for grabs across the state, including in Palm Beach and Martin counties.

About 300,000 people were trying to access the system on Wednesday and Publix expects similar numbers this time around.
Be patient and don’t log out unless you are told there are no more appointments. You must be a healthcare worker or 65 and older to receive the jab.
