Mayo Clinic is committed to providing the best and safest care to all our patients as soon as possible.

Mayo Clinic in Florida has been working with county and state agencies to support the fair and safe distribution of COVID-19 vaccine for Mayo Clinic patients.

Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine receives full approval from FDA

After a full review of the scientific data, the FDA has provided full approval for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for those 16 years of age and older. It is no longer under emergency use authorization for adults. It is also still available for those aged 12 to 16 under the emergency use authorization.

Third vaccine dose for patients who are immunocompromised

Mayo Clinic is prepared to offer additional doses of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines for patients who are moderately to severely immunocompromised.

If you are a Mayo Clinic patient who is eligible to receive an additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine, you will be notified of your eligibility through Patient Online Services or via the U.S. Postal Service.

If you are not immunosuppressed per these guidelines, you do not need to take any action at this time. Mayo Clinic will contact patients as they become eligible for additional doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Scheduling your vaccination

All patients who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, per state of Florida guidelines, can now schedule their vaccine appointments online using Patient Online Services or the Mayo Clinic app.

If you are eligible for a vaccination, you will see an option for a COVID-19 vaccination appointment on the new appointment page within Patient Online Services. If you don't see any open appointments, please continue to check back. We continue to offer only the number of appointments that our vaccine supply will allow.

Patients may also call 904-956-8700 but should expect long hold times due to high demand.

Appointment information

COVID-19 vaccinations are administered on the first floor of the Cannaday Building. Please arrive promptly at your scheduled appointment time. Please do not arrive early. If you arrive late, your appointment may have to be rescheduled.

We encourage Mayo Clinic patients in Florida to obtain a vaccination at their earliest opportunity. The state of Florida continues to distribute vaccines through designated pharmacies and government-sponsored vaccine sites. We recommend patients not wait for a vaccine from a particular manufacturer.

The state has an online Florida vaccine locator, which can be used to find active vaccination sites.

Any questions about vaccines or their side effects should be directed first to the place you receive the vaccine.
