Vaccine Information

Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

Everyone should continue with mitigation practices as we await the vaccine and as distribution begins. 

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus (and avoid exposing other people). 

  • Practice social distancing.
  • Wear a cloth face cover in public.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Clean your hands often.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Clean and disinfect “high-touch” surfaces.

Avoid Vaccine-Related Scams

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody issued a Consumer Alert warning Floridians about COVID-19 vaccine product and distribution scams. With consumers anxious to achieve immunity, scammers may exploit the situation to rip-off Floridians.

To highlight the potential for vaccine-related fraud, the International Criminal Police Organization issued a global warning revealing that of 3,000 websites associated with online pharmacies suspected of selling illicit medicines and medical devices, more than half contained cyber threats, including phishing and spamming malware.

 Attorney General Moody released the following tips to help Floridians avoid COVID-19 vaccine-related scams:

  • Do not respond to solicitations about vaccines. Once a vaccine is approved and available to the public, availability will be announced by federal and state government agencies, with clear priority tiers and distribution guidelines; 
  • Never send money or financial information to anyone offering a COVID-19 vaccine or claiming the ability to expedite the process. Vaccine doses purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars will be provided at no cost; however, vaccination providers will be able to charge an administration fee. Vaccine providers can get this fee reimbursed by the patient’s public or private insurance company or, for uninsured patients, by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Provider Relief Fund; and 
  • Report suspicious solicitations or COVID-19 vaccine-related advertisements to the Attorney General’s Office by calling 1(866) 9NO-SCAM or visiting MyFloridaLegal.com.
