COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The Florida Department of Health in Escambia, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties and their partners are collaborating to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine in Northwest Florida. Executive Order 20-315 directs the state of Florida to focus on the following populations during the initial phase:

  • Long-term care facility residents and staff
  • Persons 65 years of age and older
  • Health care personnel with direct patient contact

When vaccines become more broadly available, there will be increased access. At this time, UWF is not providing COVID-19 vaccinations.

Additional information about vaccine availability will be provided as it becomes available.
