If you are a Florida resident between 55 and 64, with certain health conditions, you can now schedule a COVID vaccine appointment with Jackson Health System.

Just after 9 p.m. Tuesday, Jackson Health announced vaccination appointments are only available for Florida residents age 65 and older, and those between 55 and 64 who meet certain criteria.

People 55 to 64 who have one of 13 “at risk” medical conditions can schedule an appointment through the online portal when the slots open. In order to secure a slot, residents between ages 55 and 64 will also need to have a signed doctor’s note stating they have one of the conditions.

Appointments will be available online on Wednesday, and administration will also begin at Jackson vaccination sites.
