Publix is eliminating its Monday registration time for Moderna COVID-19 vaccines in Florida, the grocery chain announced in a news release.

All Moderna appointments in Florida will now be scheduled during the store’s Friday registration period. Registration for Johnson and Johnson vaccine appointments will continue to take place on Wednesdays. Appointment registration begins at 7 a.m. on both Wednesdays and Fridays.

Previously, patrons could book a Moderna appointment for Wednesday through Friday using the Monday registration time. Using the Friday registration time, patrons could book a Monday or Tuesday appointment.

Now, patrons will be able to book a Moderna appointment for Monday through Friday, using the Friday registration time. They can book a Johnson and Johnson appointment for the weekends using the Wednesday registration time.

Those who have been scheduled for a second dose of the Moderna vaccine will not be impacted by the registration changes and should still attend their second appointment at their scheduled date and time.

Appointments must be scheduled online and cannot be made via phone call. All Florida residents 18 and older are eligible for the Moderna and Johnson and Johnson vaccines.
