FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Florida Department of Health-Lee has adequate COVID-19 vaccine supply for its Lee County site near Southwest Florida International Airport to schedule all preregistered individuals 65 and older in Lee County during this week and next week.

FDOH-Lee is asking for assistance from preregistered seniors while the state’s contracted vendor continues to call those who are pre-registered.

If you are 65 or older, are preregistered and missed a phone call from an unknown number, please e-mail Lee-PIO@Flhealth.gov:

In the email subject line type: “Missed call”

In the body of the email include:

· Name

· Date of birth

· Phone number you used to preregister

FDOH-Lee staff is standing by to match your information to the preregistered list for seniors. FDOH-Lee is doing this in tandem with the state vendor’s efforts to continue to place calls. The state asks that preregistered individuals continue to monitor their phones and respond.

Seniors who had previously preregistered but since have received their vaccination elsewhere are asked to remove themselves from the preregistration list by sending an email to Lee-PIO@Flhealth.gov and putting “Cancel reservation” in the subject line. In the body of the email, include name and date of birth.

Homebound seniors can request vaccination by emailing: HomeboundVaccine@em.myflorida.com.
