Pasco County has vaccinated 48,381 people as of Friday, Feb. 12: 28,909 people have received their first doses and 19,472 people have completed their second doses. The Florida Department of Health in Pasco County (DOH-Pasco) will continue to increase the number of vaccinations being given as more vaccine is received.
“We have seen an expansion of vaccine distribution locations over the past several days,” said Mike Napier, DOH-Pasco Health Officer. “Publix and other retail pharmacies are now offering vaccines at their locations.”
DOH-Pasco continues to use CDR Maguire Health & Medical (CDR Maguire) for clients to schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments. Residents must go to patientportalfl.com or call 1-844-770-8548 to create an account. Appointments open every Sunday at 2:00 p.m. for the following week and are not accessible at any other day or time. The DOH-Pasco vaccination sites do not show up on the CDR Maguire Patient Portal unless appointments are available.
Over the past several weeks, Pasco County Emergency Management has coordinated the distribution of 6,752 vaccines to people in 55+ communities who are 65 and older. DOH-Pasco is also working with large medical groups that have Closed POD agreements in place to vaccinate their staff and their 65+ clients.
