Ascension Sacred Heart Scheduling Monday Vaccination Appointments

January 7, 2021

Ascension Sacred Heart plans to hold additional COVID-19 vaccination clinics on Monday, Jan. 11, in Milton and Pensacola for local residents who are age 65 and older.

Both clinics are being organized in coordination with the Florida Department of Health (DOH) and officials from Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.

The Pensacola clinic will take place in the gym of Olive Baptist Church, 1836 E. Olive Road, Pensacola, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. In Santa Rosa County, the vaccination clinic will be located in the basketball gym of Milton Community Center, 5329 Byrom Street, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The vaccinations must be scheduled in advance. Persons without an appointment will not be eligible to get the vaccine.

To schedule a vaccination at either site, visit and click on the link for COVID-19 vaccinations. Appointments were available at the time this story was published.

Ascension Sacred Heart does not have enough vaccine yet to meet the great demand for the vaccine in the community, but it will schedule more clinics as additional vaccine becomes available.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently announced a new executive order directing that the next priority group for vaccinations in Florida should be persons age 65 and older. The seniors group follows the first priority group, which is healthcare workers and long-term care facility residents and staff.

To support the Florida DOH as it develops a long-term, comprehensive approach to community vaccinations, Ascension Sacred Heart is working with the state and other community partners to deploy vaccines to those 65 and older.

    I have tried for a week to get an appointment at the Ascension Sacred Heart website. I am retired from Sacred Heart and think they could at least take our email and get back with a time for the shot. Appreciate all of your help and all of our front line responders. God willing we will all get our shot sooner or later. God Bless!

    When the vaccine first rolled out and administered, we tried to used the Ascension on-line site to schedule an appointment. Several times, the site would show several different time slots. I would go through the on-line form and after completing the form, hit submit only to have the site informed me that time slot was filled. I did this for all the time slots listed, same story fill out the form, hit submit with the same come back from the site that time slot has been filled. So, round 2 tryin the 968-INFO number. I called was on hold, then was informed that all agents were busy with other patients and the hold q was full, try back another time. I did that so many times I lost count, I finally got through and the young lady took my information. She said all slots were filled for January, and they would contact me via phone/email. Please know that I’m very appreciative of all our front line workers and what they do for us daily. I’m just a little frustrated with the system.

    Have tried at least twice a day to get on list. Had originally signed up with health dept but no response. Just got in to the Sacred Heart website gave all my info for my 85 yr old husband and it said time had changed and to resubmit. Did this 4 times until it said all times were full. Also trying to get appt for me (79) and it did the same thing. How do you get on the list?

    Another example of ‘America’s great profit driven private health care system’s and an incompotnt government leadership!

  7. James jerkins on January 11th, 2021 4:12 pm

    I will go to any site for the vaccine. I am 73 with diabetes and have heart problems as well an immune problem. Please get me on the list for the covid 19 vaccine.

  8. sherry on January 11th, 2021 3:38 pm

    Entered required info for appt at Pensacola Olive Church. The SCHEDULE for the vaccine indicated there was an opening at 11.40am and one in the afternoon on January 11th. System took all info required but I didn’t get a confirmation from Sacred Heart website. Went to appt for vaccine at SCHEDULED time in a.m. and was told that unless I had a confirmation from website I couldn’t get the vaccine. Same thing happened to woman in line waiting. Website took information requested and also DID NOT receive a CONFIRMATION from website. WILL SOMEONE FROM SACRED HEART PLEASE CHECK INTO YOUR WEBSITE. Thankyou

    My wife and I are 82, and have a weak system from cancer surgery in July. I was able to get on the escambia health dept list but never heard from them. Guess we will wait until everyone else has theirs.

  27. Rita Jenne-Ryan on January 8th, 2021 7:12 pm

    I saw the sign up at 6:00 am on Tuesday, Jan 5 & signed up me & husband. Within a few minutes we got our confirmation by email for for Wed, Jan 6 & time. We showed up, took anout hour & half. Once you get checked in, guided to shot area & you get a second appointment for the booster shot which has to be given within 28 days. Everyone we met were so pleasant, helpful and quick. I dont understand about keeing form open. All they ask for is your name and contact # & email.

  28. Seriously on January 8th, 2021 5:38 pm

    I hope some of you commenters realize that posting in here won’t get you a vaccination or put on any list. This website is simply giving us information. It’s not their fault if we can’t get a spot and it’s not their responsibility to step in and do anything.

  29. L. Smith on January 8th, 2021 5:19 pm

    My husband and I got our shot at Olive this past Wed. I have tried to assist friends in signing up online but the appointments are not available once the online form is completed. Is there a way that a time can be held long enough for folks to complete the online form? Even with ticket master, seats are held online long enough so that folks have time to complete needed info. I know for those of us 65 and over the ability to move quickly with the online form can be stressful and then to get to the completion of the form and find that the time you picked is no longer available. Our community is so appreciative of the ability to get the vaccine now but hoping the online process could be improved so that folks have a chance to get signed up. Thank you.

  30. Sheila Houghyon on January 8th, 2021 4:52 pm

    I just signed up for COVID-19 vaccine for Monday but have not received a confirmation. Please advise I am registered at 11:40.

  31. Mary Ann on January 8th, 2021 3:55 pm

    They made such a big deal that you had to sign up with the health department for the vaccine – which I did – so what in the heck are they doing. Looks like they are hooking up with others to handle. So what happens to all of us who have already signed up waiting to be notified for appointment with them.. Looks like that will never happen and we’ll all have to try and scramble to hopefully sign up with others who are handling it for the health department. Then, you know what will happen in a couple of weeks, those who got the first shot will be given their second shot while the rest of us are still trying to get the first vaccine. Why not have one master list and schedule from that list. Come on guys, there’s got to be a better way of doing this.

  32. Judy Powell on January 8th, 2021 3:10 pm

    Please schedule an appointment for my husband in Milton. He is 75 yrs old and we live in Bagdad

    Trying to schedule an appointment for my father who is 76 with several underlying medical issues, 850-477-4495.

  41. Marilyn Carbone on January 8th, 2021 12:22 pm

    This is the second time I have tried to schedule an appointment and none are available. I am 68 years old. I have sent all my information and you have taken it but keep locking me out. I know you received it because you have sent me an email saying to get my yearly check-up and I have no connection with your hospital to have this information except filling out your form for the COVID vaccine. So does this mean I will be shut out from getting the vaccine in my age category?

  42. Patricia Snyder on January 8th, 2021 11:03 am

    When will vaccination be available again?

  43. Mary Foscue on January 8th, 2021 10:51 am

  44. Jennifer Clark on January 8th, 2021 10:48 am

    I am a 50 year old nurse, travel for my job and need to get the vaccine as soon as possible. I have to travel to a Children’s hospital on Sunday January 10, 2021. NO online appointments are available, can you advise?

  45. richard john forman on January 8th, 2021 10:35 am

    i am 71 i would like to get my covid-19 shot!

  46. Nancy L Stubblefield on January 8th, 2021 9:59 am

    website doesn’t block off time available with sufficient time to complete the form or allows multiple uses to vie for the same time at the same time. I am having knee surgery soon and I would be much more comfortable during my stay in the hospital if I have had the vaccine

  47. Khari Windsor on January 8th, 2021 9:48 am

    When will Gulf Breeze Florida be receiving vaccinations for the local residents of Gulf Breeze? I am a dental hygienist and my husband is 74 years old and we would like to receive the vaccination without having to travel to Pensacola or Milton.

    My wife and I were vaccinated at Olive Rd., Baptist Church last Wednesday and I was so impressed with the planning and execution that went into that process…… it reminded me of a synchronize ballet….. our wait time is 30 minutes and after a 15 minute sit down we were in and out in less than an hour…… everyone we ran into that was staffing the event was pleasant, informative and seem to be basically happy about what they were doing….. all Susie and I can say is thank you so much

  52. Frances D RiversAmA on January 8th, 2021 8:36 am
