HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. — The Florida Department of Health in Hillsborough County will be offering 500 Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines to health care workers who are not affiliated with a hospital but have direct contact with patients.

The vaccinations, according to DOH-Hillsborough, will be given at a clinic held on Thursday, February 11, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in northwest Hillsborough County.

Appointments will be scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis, which will be determined by the time that DOH-Hillsborough receives your response to their required survey.

DOH-Hillsborough says after completing the survey, "we will contact each individual we schedule with the specific address and appointment time we can offer. You may not select a specific time for your appointment."

To be eligible you must be a health care worker with direct patient contact. Your eligibility will be verified at the site by producing a valid:

  • Organizational identification card
  • Medical license
  • Paystub showing your health care organization
  • W-2 IRS form showing the healthcare organization as your employer
  • A letter from your employer
  • You will not be serviced if you do not bring proof.

"While we know there are many more than 500 who are in this category, this is what DOH-Hillsborough can offer at this time," DOH-Hillsborough said. "Our hope is to offer a health care worker-only vaccination site in the future, but this is all vaccine supply dependent. We are working with multiple agencies to close this gap and our goal is to have something established in the near future."

Please note, completing a survey does not secure you an appointment, and the survey will close once 500 individuals have completed it.
