Publix working with Florida Department of Health to provide COVID-19 vaccinations in 22 store pharmacies in Citrus, Hernando and Marion counties
LAKELAND, Fla., Jan. 5, 2021 — At a press conference this afternoon, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced a collaboration between Publix and the Florida Department of Health to distribute approximately 15,000 doses of the Moderna COVID 19 vaccine to customers ages 65 and older. The vaccine will initially be available at 22 stores in Citrus, Hernando and Marion counties.
“It’s our privilege to work with Governor DeSantis as a distributor of this important vaccine. We’re grateful to play a role in helping to protect the health and well-being of people at risk of serious complications from the coronavirus,” said Publix Vice President of Pharmacy Dain Rusk. “We look forward to a time when everyone who wants a vaccination is able to receive one.”
Each store can schedule approximately 120 vaccinations per day, while supplies last. Vaccinations are by appointment only starting Thursday, Jan. 7. Customers can make an appointment by using the online reservation system on publix.com/covidvaccine.
Vaccinations are provided at no cost. Customers with insurance will need to bring their insurance card, and customers without insurance will need to provide their driver’s license or Social Security number.
