Lee Health opens COVID-19 vaccine appointments to general public
LEE COUNTY, Fla. – Anyone aged 18 and up can now sign up online to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at Lee Health.
You do not have to be a Lee Health patient to get the vaccine, said the health care system. All vaccines will be administered at Gulf Coast Medical Center.
After you sign up, you will be notified when the vaccine is available and you’ll be given a choice of time slots of available appointments, said Lee Health. If multiple brands of the COVID-19 vaccine are in stock, you will have the option of choosing which vaccine you receive.
Currently, the Moderna vaccine is being offered at Lee Health.
Patients are asked to not call Lee Health hospitals or physician offices to try and schedule a vaccine appointment. All scheduling must be done online.
“As Lee County’s community-owned health system, Lee Health is pleased to offer the COVID-19 vaccine to anyone who wants one. Widespread vaccination is the best path to end the pandemic and a return to normalcy, and I encourage everyone in our community to get the vaccine as soon as possible,” Larry Antonucci, M.D., MBA, Lee Health president & CEO.
Since December, Lee Health has been vaccinating its employees and medically vulnerable patients.
Vaccine appointments are for Florida residents only.
