MANATEE COUNTY, FL (Feb. 8, 2021) – Manatee County today will begin calling seniors ages 65 and older who have enrolled in the County's vaccination standby pool to book 5,100 appointments for the week.
The County plans to book 1,700 appointments per day for seniors to be vaccinated Wednesday, Feb. 10, Thursday, Feb. 11 and Friday, Feb. 12 at Bennett Park, 400 Cypress Creek Blvd.
Manatee County will continue using its current vaccination enrollment process at vax.mymanatee.org instead of opting into a new statewide registration system at this time.
Local seniors who have enrolled with the local registration system do not need to enroll in the new state system.Signing up for state’s My Vaccine system, will not get you a vaccination appointment in Manatee County because the system is not in use in our county.
