FDOH-Collier announced its COVID-19 vaccine schedule for the week of Jan. 11, for health care personnel with direct patient contact and people 65 and older.

Appointments will open up on Friday, Jan. 8, at 9 a.m. Appointments must be made ONLINE at CollierCountyCOVIDVaccines.Eventbrite.com. There is a limit of 4 appointments that can be scheduled at a time. Each individual’s name must be on the printed ticket.

If you are unable to make an appointment, you can join a waitlist. (Instructions below.)

Drive-thru vaccinations will be given at North Collier Regional Park, 15000 Livingston Road, on the following dates:

  • Monday, Jan. 11
  • Wednesday, Jan. 13
  • Friday, Jan. 15

Health care personnel with direct patient contact will be asked to provide ID indicating they are health care staff.

Face masks must be worn while waiting in vehicles.

No referral needed and there is no cost. Clients will be asked to complete a registration form prior to receiving the vaccine.

The DOH-Collier call center will remain open Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The call center can be reached at (239) 252-6220.

DOH-Collier will allow people eligible for the vaccine to join a waitlist. You can find the waitlist button by visiting the Eventbrite registration page. When you click register, you will see a list of sold-out dates in addition to a red button that says Join Waitlist.

To get on Collier County’s waitlist, go to this link, click the date you want to join the waitlist for, click “Register” and then click “Join Waitlist” at the bottom. The FDOH told us the waitlist is only for the date and time you sign up for, not for any future openings. You’ll receive an email if there’s a cancellation and it’s your turn to secure an appointment, but keep in mind you’ll only have 12 hours to see that email and respond.

As for the second dose of the vaccine, Collier County says to expect an email 21 days after your first dose to make an appointment for your second.
