St. Johns County Launches New COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment Preregistration System

St. Johns County launched a new COVID-19 vaccination appointment preregistration system on February 22, 2021. Individuals who are interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine may now preregister for an appointment by visiting https://sjcvaccineappointment.sjcfl.us. Individuals who preregister with St. Johns County's Vaccination Appointment System will receive an automated phone call from 904.295.3711 when COVID-19 vaccination appointments become available, and will be provided the opportunity to do one of the following:

  • Accept the assigned appointment.
  • Decline the assigned appointment.
  • Request removal from the registry.
  • Ask for a phone call from a vaccine call center operator.

Individuals who choose to decline the assigned appointment will remain preregistered, and will receive a subsequent phone call with an alternative appointment date and time. The appointment preregistration system will remain open until 6,000 preregistrations are received, and will be made available again once new vaccines are received. You must be 65 years of age or older or be a healthcare provider with direct patient contact to be eligible to preregister for an appointment at this time. Upon arrival at the vaccination site, appointment holders will be required to provide proof of age or proof of healthcare employment, and proof of Florida residency. The new appointment preregistration system replaces St. Johns County's previous Eventbrite vaccine registration program, and is only for individuals who are receiving their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Please call 904.295.3711 for additional information, or to request assistance with preregistration.
