One of Southwest Florida’s largest health care providers said it has been approved to receive and administer the COVID-19 vaccine, but it does not have a timeline.

Millennium Physician Group has yet to hear when it will receive the vaccine, but its plan is in place and they will contact their most vulnerable patients who meet the state’s criteria as soon as they begin receiving the vaccine.

Currently, patients 65 and over would meet the criteria for vaccination at a Millennium location.

They ask that patients do not call their doctor’s office, as no vaccines are being given at this time.
