Leon County announced the new “Vax Map” to help citizens navigate the County for COVID-19 vaccines. As the eligibility for the vaccine increases to include more of the population in the State of Florida, Leon County released a new online resource for users to locate vaccine sites.
The new database allows for users to select a location from the existing map or search for a known address. Also, using a link provided by selecting the location, the user is then able to schedule an appointment for the vaccine. Additionally, permanent and pop-up COVID-19 testing centers can also be found on the new County “Vax Map.”
Currently, long-term care facility residents and staff, health care personnel, individuals who are extremely vulnerable, and those who are 40 years old or older are eligible to receive the vaccine. All COVID-19 vaccines approved by the Food and Drug Administration will be available to all Floridians beginning on April 5th.
As of March 31, reports show that 77,352 people have been vacinated in Leon County with 47,234 completing the process and 30,118 recieving one dose.
