Here’s Escambia County’s Vaccination Plan For The Week, Including Weather Delayed Doses

February 23, 2021

The health department has announced this week’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan for Escambia County, and it includes extra doses that did not arrive last week due to winter weather across the county.

The Florida Department of Health in Escambia County will receive 2,500 doses of the Moderna vaccine for the week. This allocation is in addition 2,500 delayed doses originally planned for distribution for the week of February 15.

Escambia County’s 5,000 vaccine allocation will be distributed as follows:

  • Ascension Sacred Heart: 900 doses
  • Baptist Health Care: 900 doses
  • Community Health Northwest Florida: 1,600 doses
  • FDOH-Escambia: 1,000 doses
  • West Florida Hospital: 400 doses
  • Woodlands Medical Specialists: 200 doses

Some appointments will be scheduled using the statewide pre-registration system. FDOH-Escambia and partner organizations are in the process of contacting individuals to schedule appointments. Please do not contact the providers directly for these appointments.

The allocations of second dose vaccine for the weeks of February 15 and February 22 are still in the shipping process. Persons scheduled to receive second dose vaccinations prior to local receipt of second dose supplies will be contacted for a new appointment date and time.

    CVS has about 71 sites in Florida giving out vaccines, yet 67 of them are in maimi/Dade county. What the Hell?

    @Mom: I completely agree with you. Too much independent decision making by both the state and the counties. It’s a complete mess in my opinion as well.

    i just read that Florida is getting four FEMA sites for COVID Vaccines. Miami, Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville. What is our part of the State? Chopped liver? Why the glaring omission of the western panhandle? It was designed for teachers and law enforcement fifty and over. I qualify. I’m a teacher with diabetes, heart disease and kidney issues. I should have been able to get a shot before now as I am actively working in the public school system. Shame on you decision makers who decided we don’t count in this part of the state!

    I was never called about my appointment. I showed up and was toldI didn’t have one even though I had paperwork to prove otherwise, and was told to come back. I went back and they were out of the vaccine. I’ve received no calls. Ever. Not about what appointment I know I had, not about the vaccine being unavailable and definitely not about a new appointment time. I’m overdue for my 2nd dose and I’m a healthcare provider. There’s no phone number to call to get information, nothing online directs you to a person and emails go unreturned. This system is a mess and they need a task force to actually take calls from the people!! Sacred is being paid for my vaccine that I’m not getting!!
