Selection Pool Process


Manatee County will be implementing a new COVID-19 vaccine standby process that will allow seniors ages 65 and older to avoid waiting lines by pre-registering by phone or online with the County if they're interested in receiving vaccines beginning to arrive locally.  The selection process will be RANDOM and not first come, first serve.

The public will be able to access the registration form online 24/7, beginning at 10 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 7.

You can also register by calling 311 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays beginning Friday, Jan. 8. More information will be available on Thursday afternoon.

When Manatee County receives more vaccinations, we will take the random selection list and call you, we will be making your vaccination appointment for you.
