Registration for our COVID-19 vaccine is currently suspended as we have reached our initial registration cap of 50,000. When registration re-opens, we will share that information on this website, our department's social media (www.Twitter.com/FLHealthMarion), and with local media.

The department is currently working on vaccinating and scheduling the first 10,000 who signed up. We are able to distribute about 3,000 vaccines per week currently in combination with our partners. We anticipate the number of people able to be vaccinated each week will increase as partnerships grow. For additional information, please see the COVID-19 Vaccine Frequently Asked Questions below.
