Manatee County COVID-19
Vaccination Standby Pool

If you are age 65 and older, you can pre-register by phone or online to join Manatee County’s COVID-19 Vaccination Standby Pool for the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, as vaccinations become available.

Recipients will be randomly selected from the standby pool. You will be contacted by Manatee County when you are selected. You can register up to two people together on this form to attend an appointment together. Duplicate entries will be removed.

Appointments will be made as quickly as vaccine doses are received by the county.

If you have questions related to COVID-19 or the vaccine, please contact your physician/doctor the Manatee County Department of Health.

If you have any issues enrolling online, our vendor registration system may be processing entries. Please be patient and try again soon!

There are two ways to pre-register in the pool:

  • Register yourself online, anytime 24/7
  • Call 311 (941-748-4501 if dialing outside Manatee County) and register over the phone, available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

You will need to provide the following information:

  • Name
  • Birth month and year
  • Phone
  • Email (optional)
  • Zip code


As vaccines become available, eligible recipients will be randomly selected from the pool.

When selected, you will be contacted by Manatee County to book an appointment. In order for our 311 Call Center operators to work efficiently, please do not call 311 to ask whether your name has been selected. 311 callers will call you when an appointment time is available.

Vaccine recipients must be full- or part-time Florida residents. At your appointment, you will be required to show a valid Florida driver's license or ID card, part-time rental agreement or utility, cable or power bill in your name with a Florida address.

Appointments will be made as quickly as vaccine doses are received by the county.

View our Vaccination Appointment Information page for details about your appointment and what you need to bring, including the consent form. Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.
