Miami-Dade County is coordinating closely with hospital and healthcare partners, the State of Florida, cities, and private partners to vaccinate members of our community against the coronavirus (COVID-19) as quickly, safely and equitably as possible.
Individuals 18 years of age or older who live in Florida may receive the COVID-19 vaccine as outlined in the Governor's Executive Order. Minors 16 and 17 years of age may receive the Pfizer vaccine but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to the vaccination site.
As of April 13, 2021, the State of Florida has paused all state vaccination efforts that use the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as it continues to wait for further guidance from the CDC and FDA. The state encourages all individuals to report any adverse reaction to any COVID-19 vaccine to their health care provider. Individuals are encouraged to visit other state-supported vaccine sites that are offering the Moderna & Pfizer vaccines.

To ensure vaccines are equitably distributed across all communities and no one is left behind, Mayor Daniella Levine Cava signed Emergency Order 32-20 (HTML | PDF) giving the County greater oversight of vaccination in Miami-Dade.
Hospital systems and all entities administering the vaccine are now required to publish daily updates on their progress. The order also states that hospital systems and entities providing vaccines should not provide appointments unless they have already received vaccine doses and have a good forecast of the number of people they'll be able to vaccinate.
