Pasco County Continues to Protect Florida Residents Against COVID-19: Almost 60,000 People Vaccinated
February 23, 2021
Pasco County has vaccinated 59,313 people as of Monday, Feb. 22: 34,879 people have received their first doses and 24,446 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.
DOH-Pasco continues to vaccinate health care providers – expanding outreach efforts to dental and medical offices who are not affiliated with hospitals. Practice managers are asked to complete a survey for staff who want to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The survey is now open and will close on Friday, Feb. 26, 2021. DOH-Pasco does not currently have a time frame for when the vaccine will be offered to health care providers, but the survey will help establish the best method to provide vaccine to the individuals with direct patient contact who want to receive the vaccine.
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 8,721 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.
