St. Johns County COVID-19 Vaccination Appointments Do Not Require Payment

St. Johns County encourages those registering for a COVID-19 vaccination appointment to remain cautious of scams that contain misleading information or links to websites requiring payment. If you encounter a website requiring payment information to book an appointment, it is not the official St. Johns County COVID-19 vaccination registration page. Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody released the following tips to help avoid COVID-19 vaccine-related scams:

  • Know that anyone asking for money in exchange for an appointment is a scam
  • Check with county health departments for local vaccine distribution guidelines
  • Be wary of any website where pop-up ads solicit a vaccine appointment
  • Look for "https" or a padlock icon in the website name to ensure that you are on a secure  website
  • Report suspicious solicitations or COVID-19 vaccine-related advertisements to the Attorney General's Office by calling 1(866) 9NO-SCAM (866-966-7226) or visiting MyFloridaLegal.com.
