Publix is now offering COVID-19 vaccination at all five Bay County locations. To make an appointment, visit

To learn about available COVID-19 vaccine appointments with DOH-Bay, text bayhealth to 888777 or visit

People who are not in this priority population for vaccination are asked to assist family members, friends or neighbors who may need help with online registration. Please reserve DOH-Bay’s phone lines for seniors who have limited digital literacy.

Please remember there are tens of thousands of people in Bay County alone trying to register at this time for a limited number of vaccines. This is a historic mass vaccination effort and it is going to take some time to vaccinate everyone who wants to be vaccinated. Your patience and understanding are essential and appreciated.

DOH-Bay second doses will be scheduled by phone close to the due date of your dose. If you are not contacted by the due date on your card provided at your appointment, please call (850) 872-4455.
