At a recent press conference, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a collaboration between Publix and the Florida Department of Health to distribute approximately 15,000 doses of the Moderna COVID‑19 vaccine to customers ages 65 and older. The vaccination will initially be available at 22 stores in Citrus, Hernando and Marion counties.

“It’s our privilege to work with Governor DeSantis as a distributor of this important vaccine. We’re grateful to play a role in helping to protect the health and well-being of people at risk of serious complications from the coronavirus,” said Publix VP of Pharmacy Dain Rusk. “We look forward to a time when everyone who wants a vaccination is able to receive one.”

Each store can schedule approximately 120 vaccinations per day, while supplies last. Vaccinations are by appointment only starting Thursday, Jan. 7. Customers can make an appointment by using the online reservation system on publix.com/covidvaccine.

Vaccinations are provided at no cost. Customers with insurance will need to bring their insurance card, and customers without insurance will need to provide their driver’s license or Social Security number.

The participating Florida store locations are Belleview, Brooksville, Crystal River, Dunnellon, Hernando, Homosassa, Inverness, Ocala, Spring Hill and Weeki Wachee.

Publix is also in communication with the other six states in its operating area to provide COVID-19 vaccinations as part of their distribution efforts.

Publix, the largest employee-owned company in the U.S. with more than 225,000 associates, currently operates 1,264 stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. For more information, visit the company’s website, corporate.publix.com.
