With more people now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, you may be trying to find the best place to book an appointment.

Beginning March 29, all Floridians 40 years old and older are eligible to get vaccinated. One week later on April 5, all adults in Florida will be eligible. That will include 16 and 17-year-olds who are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine.

Publix pharmacies do online sign-ups every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at 7 a.m. Monday and Friday booking sessions are for the Moderna vaccine and Wednesdays are for the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. However, it appears there may not be a Wednesday sign up this week. To sign up, click here.
