Duval County's health department is now accepting appointments online for COVID-19 vaccinations for people 65 years old and older, along with healthcare workers and EMS workers who have direct patient contact.
Thursday's announcement follows an earlier announcement about a hotline that people can call at (904) 253-1140 to make an appointment. Originally the hotline was the only way to schedule a shot.
Vaccines are available by appointment only, using the online portal or by calling between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays.
The phone line is now closed for the holiday weekend but it is set to reopen Monday, Jan. 4, at 8 a.m.
