Hernando County COVID-19 vaccines

BROOKSVILLE — Hernando County Government, in support of the Florida Department of Health in Hernando County (DOH-Hernando), has contracted with CDR Maguire: Health & Medical, one of the state’s leading COVID-19 testing companies, to provide vaccination scheduling through their CDR HealthPro™ patient portal software.

The patient portal will go live to book appointments, this Friday, January 22nd at 10 a.m. for those persons age 65 or older who would like to schedule an appointment for the first dose of the vaccine.

Hernando County has received 1,500 total doses of the vaccine, to be administered in the following 3, 500-dose blocks:

· January 25th-29th from 8 a.m.- 4 p.m. daily at the Florida Department of Health in Hernando County (7551 Forest Oaks Blvd, Spring Hill, FL 34606)

· January 26th from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. at the Hernando County Fairgrounds (6436 Broad St., Brooksville, FL. 34601)

· January 27th from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. at the Hernando County Fairgrounds (6436 Broad St., Brooksville, FL. 34601)

The Hernando County appointment portal will go live at 10 a.m. on January 22nd. People can then schedule their appointments in one of the above slots on a first come, first served basis using the two options shown below: 

· Online by CDR HealthPro™ portal at patientportalfl.com

· By phone at (844) 770-8548

Appointments are required to get the vaccine. Walkups will not be accommodated.

The Florida Department of Health in Hernando County and CDR Maguire: Health & Medical encourage people to create a CDR HealthPro™ patient portal account ahead of the 10:00 a.m. vaccination appointment scheduling window at patientportalfl.com.

CDR HealthPro™ patient accounts can be created prior to scheduling a vaccination appointment. Creating a patient account does not mean an appointment has been scheduled. An appointment can only be scheduled when an appointment window is live. When the portal goes live, those with established accounts will be able to return to the platform to make an appointment without having to go through the initial steps of creating an account. 

Hernando County expects to receive allocations of vaccine from the state as it is made available. Vaccination appointments will be provided to the public based on the vaccine supply allocation received. Limited availability of vaccines is anticipated over the next several weeks.
