LEE COUNTY, Fla. — Millennium Physician Group has announced that patients now have the opportunity to pre-register themselves for the COVID-19 vaccine.
When patients sign up they are notified when it’s time to get the shot.
Once a vaccine becomes available, patients will receive an email or text prompting them to choose a time, date, and location at which to get vaccinated.
Per new Florida guidelines effective today, patients who are 60 and over, Millennium’s healthcare workers with direct patients contact, and patients under 60 deemed ‘extremely vulnerable’ to COVID-19 are eligible to pre-register.
“It’s been so heartbreaking to hear stories about our patients and others who’ve become anxious trying to find a vaccine,” says Millennium Chief Medical Officer Alejandro Perez-Trepichio, MD. “We are thrilled to be able to offer this easy option, providing patients the peace of mind they need in a pandemic. No more calling the office, no more logging onto websites. The system will notify them when their vaccine is ready.”
The first appointments through Millennium’s patient vaccine self-registration website will be scheduled for Monday, March 22.
