Update – April 5, 2021
As of April 5, 2021, all persons 18 years of age and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Florida. We encourage all students, faculty, and staff who are eligible and able to receive the vaccine to make an appointment at one of the many locations offered around the state. If you do not have a Florida ID, you will need to provide proof of residency to receive your shot. A list of specific documents needed can be found at floridahealthcovid19.gov under the "Vaccine Eligibility" tab.
Additionally, persons ages 16 and up are authorized to receive the Pfizer vaccine; the Moderna and Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) vaccines are only authorized for persons age 18 and up. Full Sail students under the age of 18 who wish to receive a vaccine must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and complete the COVID-19 vaccine screening and consent form.
