Attention Redington Shores Residents:

Registration for COVID-19 vaccinations for anyone 65 and older in Pinellas County re-opens at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 23, following a new shipment of 8,000 doses from the State of Florida. Appointments start early next week and are expected to fill quickly. More information can be found on the Pinellas County website: https://covid19.pinellascounty.org/vaccines/

In alignment with the State of Florida, patients will now be asked to show proof of Florida residency to receive a vaccine. Examples include: a valid Florida Drivers License, state issued ID, deed, or utility bill with the patient’s name and address. Part-time residents will be asked to provide part-time rental agreement.  Please understand demand is still very high with a limited supply.
