The latest news from Publix is a big step forward.
Publix had been offering Covid-19 vaccines at selected pharmacies by appointment. The number of locations had been increasing. Now, the Publix corporate office announced their next big step.
All 730 of the in-store Florida pharmacies will now offer appointments for Covid-19 vaccinations.
Publix CEO Todd Jones, said in a press release:
We’re pleased to bring appointment opportunities to each of our in-store Florida pharmacies. We know how important this vaccine is to the people we serve, and we are grateful we can expand our ability to help our communities during this time of need.
Publix will continue to follow the state’s guidelines for eligibility. For now, that is still limited to “individuals ages 65 and older.”
Appointments can be made while supplies last through the Publix online reservation system. You can find that here. Phone calls for reservations will not be taken.
Vaccinations are offered by Publix at not cost. If you have health insurance, Publix wants you to bring your insurance card. Medicare members should bring their card as well. For those without insurance, provide a driver’s license or Social Security number.
