Vaccine Finder: CLICK HERE to find available vaccines closest to you. All you need is your zip code. Once your zip code is entered, the available “in stock” vaccine locations are in green. It will take a few clicks for confirmation and scheduling for available appointments.
Federal Distribution sites include Publix, Walmart, Walgreens, Winn Dixie, CVS and Sam’s Clubs. This is important to note as they will have additional vaccine allocation over and above the state allocation. We understand that vaccine availability varies by county, notably with regard to who administers the vaccine.
