SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) -A new way to register and secure your spot in line for a COVID-19 vaccination in Sarasota County launched at noon. Here’s the link: https://member.everbridge.net/730492332670985/login

County officials also tell ABC7 that they are working to curb concerns about vaccine tourism, meaning people who will come into the county just to get the vaccine. They are asking for proof of residency or part time residency. Vaccines are only for Florida residents and “snow birds” because of their part-time residency.

County leaders say the new system aims to ease the burden of people 65 and older having to go on Eventbrite to try to secure a spot. Florida Department of Health in Sarasota leaders say once you create a profile and are registered through the event link on the Everbridge system you will not have to register again because you are already in the cue for when more doses of the vaccine arrive.

The DOH in Sarasota also announced this week they are launching a COVID vaccination registration call center. The call center will launch at noon.

Here’s the latest as on Wednesday morning from the DOH in Sarasota:
