COVID-19 VACCINE DISTRIBUTION
March 19, 2021
A message from Health Officer Mike Napier about the COVID-19 Vaccination Distribution Program in Pasco.
Per Governor's Executive Order 21-79, all Floridians can now receive any COVID-19 vaccine as prescribed by the Food and Drug Administration.
DOH-Pasco uses the Moderna vaccine, so anyone who is 18+ and wants to get the COVID-19 vaccine through DOH-Pasco must go to patientportalfl.com or call 1-844-770-8548 and create an account with CDR Maguire: Health & Medical (CDR Maguire). It is required to have an account with CDR Maguire to register for a vaccination appointment. Appointments open every Friday 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 appear on the CDR Maguire Patient Portal until appointments are available.
Appointments are mandatory. Pasco County residency is not required, but Florida residency is. Additional locations will be announced when more vaccine and vaccinators become available.
