PASCO COUNTY, Fla. – The Florida Department of Health in Pasco County (DOH-Pasco), in partnership with Pasco County Emergency Management, Sears at the Gulf View Square Mall and Saint Leo University, continues to provide
COVID-19 vaccinations to Florida residents. In an effort to keep the public aware of COVID-19 vaccine distribution, DOH-Pasco will continue to issue updates every week.
Anyone 65 and older who needs the COVID-19 vaccination must go to patientportalfl.com or call 1-844-770-8548 and create an account with CDR
Maguire: Health & Medical (CDR Maguire). It is required to have an account with CDR Maguire to register for a vaccination appointment.
Vaccination appointments will open for registration on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. An appointment is mandatory to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
Please be aware that the demand for the COVID-19 vaccine is greater than the supply we have on hand, so appointments for vaccination fill up very quickly.
