Why Get Vaccinated

Last week DOH Madison advertised the availability of COVID-19 vaccines for persons ages 65+ and asked for signed consent forms from those of you who were interested. To date, we have received over 400 forms and are working to schedule appointments in the order we received the forms.  We do have enough vaccine at this time to cover the number of forms we have received.  Please be patient with us as we work through the forms and schedule appointments.  We are working a quickly as possible.  Continue to submit your forms as we will receive additional vaccine.

DOH Madison wishes all a Happy Healthy New Year!

The Department of Health in Madison (DOH Madison) received initial doses of COVID-19 vaccines, December 28, 2020.

The Executive Order 20-315 directs DOH Madison to focus on the following populations during this initial phase:

  1. Long-term care facility residents and staff;
  2. Persons 65 years of age and older; and
  3. Health care personnel with direct patient contact.  

The Executive Order also allows Hospital to vaccinate persons who they deem to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19.

CVS and Walgreens have contracted with the state to provide vaccinations to long-term care facility residents and staff.

DOH Madison is coordinating with local private health care providers to begin the administration of the vaccine to their front-line health care workers.

For persons 65 years of age and older, scan and email the completed and signed Moderna Vaccine Screening and Consent Form to [email protected] to be added to DOH Madison’s vaccination schedule. The completed form can also be mailed or hand-delivered to DOH Madison at 218 SW Third Avenue, Madison, FL 32340. Once received and reviewed by the nursing staff, you will be contacted to schedule your vaccine administration appointment or directed to participate in a mass vaccination clinic anticipated the first week of January.

Residents can get printed forms from the health department, the library in Madison, Greenville, and Lee or the Senior Center if needed. Residents can call the health department COVID hotline if they would like a consent form mailed to them.

As additional vaccine is made available, the vaccines will be provided to the general population in a coordinated, orderly and efficient manner to help slow or stop the spread of COVID-19 within the community. Look for more information on vaccination clinics in the future.
