All Central Florida Publix COVID-19 vaccination appointments booked

All COVID-19 vaccination appointments at Central Florida Publix locations were filled about an hour after the company open its appointment portal.

When appointments opened just after 7 a.m., some users reported that the website was redirecting them to make an appointment in South Carolina. However, the glitch was fixed a few minutes later.

Florida residents who are over 65, residents and staff members of long-term care facilities, or health care workers were eligible to make a vaccination appointment.


Residents who made an appointment online Monday will be able to receive the vaccine starting Wednesday.

The stores will administer 100 to 125 vaccines per day, and an appointment is required.

Publix announced Tuesday that it canceled Wednesday’s COVID-19 vaccine appointment scheduling event due to weather-related vaccine shipment delays.

Publix officials said the change is due to weather-related issues preventing the government’s delivery of allotted COVID-19 vaccines.
