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 vaccines for Mayo Clinic patients.

Vaccinations for children 6 months to 11 years

Mayo Clinic has a limited number of pediatric vaccines available. Parents or guardians may call 904-956-8700 to schedule an appointment. Parents are encouraged to check with a pediatrician’s office or community vaccination sites.

Children ages 6 months to 4 years can receive a three-dose primary series of the Pfizer- BioNTech vaccine or a two-dose primary series of the Moderna vaccine.

Children who are 5 years old can receive a two-dose primary series of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or the Moderna vaccine.

Additionally, the CDC recommends that children ages 5 to 11 years who are moderately or severely immunosuppressed receive a third dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine 28 days after the last vaccine dose.

Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster vaccinations for those ages 12 to 17 are available for patients who are six months past their initial Pfizer vaccination series. Those patients who received their initial doses at Mayo Clinic will be contacted through Patient Online Services or by letter.

Patients may schedule an appointment through Patient Online Services via the Mayo Clinic app or by calling 904-956-8700.

Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID vaccine boosters

Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna boosters

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have authorized both Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 booster vaccines six months following completion of the initial COVID-19 vaccination series for people age 18 and up. Pfizer vaccines are also available for those ages 16 to 17.

Johnson & Johnson/Janssen booster

The Johnson& Johnson/Janssen booster vaccine is recommended for people age 18 and older starting two months after completion of the primary Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccine brands and booster vaccination

Current recommendations are that the booster vaccine be the same brand you received for your initial vaccine series. However, Mayo Clinic will follow the mix-and-match strategy approved by the FDA in cases:

  • Where a provider or patient feels a different vaccine brand would be more appropriate
  • Where there are concerns about the side effect profile of a particular brand
  • Where the vaccine brand used for the initial vaccine series is not available

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 via the Mayo Clinic app or by calling 904-956-8700. Mayo Clinic also offers COVID-19 booster vaccinations to all eligible patients.

Appointment information

COVID-19 vaccinations are administered on the second-floor atrium of the Mayo 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 that patients not wait for a vaccine from a particular manufacturer.

The state of Florida maintains 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.
