It will NOT generate an appointment for vaccination. Information provided through the online tool will be used to contact those who want the vaccine based on two factors: When eligibility of certain groups is approved by the Alabama Department of Public Health and when USA Health has received enough vaccine to begin giving the shots to those who are eligible.

Santa Rosa County

Santa Rosa County is discontinuing the county-sponsored COVID testing sites at the Milton Community Center and Tiger Point Community Center in order to devote these resources to the COVID vaccination station at 6209 Hwy. 90 in Milton (former Bealls).

“We’ve seen a reduction in residents desiring a COVID test,” said Public Safety Director Brad Baker. “With the state lowering the eligibility to all adults 18 and older on April 5, we are reallocating those resources towards COVID vaccinations. We encourage residents to continue to get tested at one of the local providers if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.”

If residents are exhibiting symptoms, they should contact their primary care provider, the Florida Department of Health COVID-19 Call Center (1-866-779-6121) or one of the healthcare providers listed below. Charges may apply.

To schedule an appointment for the COVID vaccine, eligible Florida residents may register by calling ShareCare, toll-free at 866-201-7110 or myvaccine.fl.gov. The TTY number for the deaf and hard of hearing is 833-476-1035. Appointments are available as early as same day.

COVID updates for Santa Rosa County can be found online at www.santarosa.fl.gov/COVID19.

Okaloosa County

The Florida Department of Health in Okaloosa County (DOH-Okaloosa) is partnering with Okaloosa County Emergency Medical Services to offer COVID-19 vaccinations.  

Medical experts and doctors developed a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. This vaccine is authorized by the Food and Drug Administration based on clinical testing. If you have questions, please visit It’s Up to You to get answers!  The COVID-19 vaccine allows us to keep our family’s safe and protect the most vulnerable people. It is also a monumental step toward getting back to the moments we have all missed – visiting and sharing time with family and friends.  

COVID-19 vaccinations in Okaloosa County are by appointment only and open to persons ages 16 and older (Pfizer-BioNTech). Any individual who is not 18 years of age or older by the day of their vaccination appointment must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to the vaccination clinic. Unaccompanied minors cannot be vaccinated and will be turned away from the vaccination clinic. 

Registration will open at noon central time on Tuesday, April 6 both online and for scheduling over the phone. Appointments cannot be made through email or by walk-in at the health department.  

Appointments must be made in advance. To make an appointment visit https://OkaloosaCOVID19Vax.eventbrite.com to register online via Eventbrite or by calling 850-344-0566. Google Chrome is the recommended browser for using Eventbrite. You should make sure your web browser is up to date. An overloaded web browser could prevent your registration from going through. Clear your browser’s cache and cookies.  

We encourage people to register online. Tickets are also available by phone until sold out. If Eventbrite is sold out, please call 850-344-0566. Eventbrite appointments usually fill up before the telephone appointments.  

Appointments are required for this vaccination clinic and will not be scheduled on site. Do not arrive at the vaccination site without an appointment. IDs will be verified at the vaccination event. 

The vaccination provided will be the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. A second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is required 21 days after the first dose. Learn more about mRNA vaccines and how they work.

Once you’ve secured your appointment time, please arrive on-time. Individuals arriving early can cause delays and longer lines.

We will issue an update once vaccination slots have been filled. As vaccination events and details are finalized, DOH – Okaloosa will release more information on vaccination events.  

The appointment only vaccination clinic will be drive-thru only, and all individuals will remain in their vehicle for the duration of the clinic. Individuals receiving the vaccine are asked to wear short-sleeve shirts and remove any jackets/coats when arriving.  

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises individuals to be monitored for at least 15 minutes after receiving the vaccine. Individuals will be directed to a waiting area to park and should plan accordingly.    

On January 21, State Surgeon General Dr. Scott Rivkees signed a Public Health Advisory prioritizing Florida residents for COVID-19 vaccinations given in Florida. Recipients of the vaccine must be able to demonstrate residency consistent with criteria set forth in § 381.986(5)(b), Fla. Stat.; or an individual present in Florida for the purpose of providing health care services involving direct contact with patients.
