The COVID-19 coronavirus

Florida Department of Health-Sarasota received 3,300 Moderna COVID-19 vaccines that will be distributed to those in priority groups (65+ and front-line health care workers) during a by-appointment drive-thru clinic at Twin Lakes Parks on Thursday and Friday.

The Everbridge registration system will open at noon Jan. 20.

The Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County is sharing a “How to” video showing step-by-step registration through the new Everbridge system for vaccination registration.

It will be available at the Health Department's local page, sarasota.floridahealth.go, and Sarasota's page,

This is a different registration than the Everbridge event for COVID-testing – residents who registered for the covid-testing alerts and are interested in vaccine information will need to complete a new registration.

With limited vaccines, the Sarasota County Health Department is using a new system for residents to call in or register for a spot when the COVID-19 doses are available.

Although the health department is transitioning into curbside vaccinations, appointments will still be necessary through the new Everbridge system.
