Miami-Dade Launches COVID-19 Vaccination Waiting List — With Some Glitches
Updated Friday at 5:52 a.m
Miami-Dade County launched a waiting list for senior COVID-19 vaccinations Thursday, though the rollout included some website glitches.
Multiple users reported error messages after the county announced the new web portal shortly after 4:30 p.m. Others reported success, receiving confirmation messages from Miami-Dade.
While vaccination doses are mostly restricted to people 65 and over, Miami-Dade is allowing people of all ages to register on the site. A county spokesperson said once someone is in the system, they’ll receive updates as Florida expands eligibility for vaccine injections. People 65 and over will be contacted for appointments as supplies become available, said Rachel Johnson, the county’s communications director.
