Polk Continues with Current Vaccine Enrollment Process through Online Portal
Published on Jan 29, 2021
Bartow, Fla. (Jan. 29, 2021) – Polk County will continue using its current vaccination enrollment process through the portal website at https://register.polk.health instead of opting into a new statewide registration system at this time. Enrollments will also continue to be taken through the COVID-19 Vaccination Call Center at (863) 298-7500 for those who prefer to register by phone.
Local seniors who have enrolled with the local registration system do not need to enroll in the new state system. Signing up for state’s My Vaccine system, will not get you a vaccination appointment in Polk County because the system is not yet in use in our county at this time.
“More than 60,000 residents are currently on Polk County’s vaccination registration list and we continue to accept reservations by the portal and call center. We appreciate the collaboration with Polk County Government who has been instrumental in establishing a process for residents to request a vaccine,” says Dr. Joy Jackson, director of the Florida Department of Health in Polk County.
The Florida Department of Health in Polk County and Polk County Board of County Commissioners are committed to dispersing the COVID-19 vaccine to residents as quickly and efficiently as possible. More than 32,000 individuals in Polk have received the COVID-19 vaccination so far.
