Pasco County will open up the next round of vaccination appointments at Saint Leo University for the coming week starting at 2 pm. Sunday.

There will be 700 appointments available each day on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the campus, located at 33701 State Road 52 in St. Leo.

As usual, a reservation is required in order to receive a vaccine, according to the Florida Department of Health in Pasco County.

Those 65 and older seeking a COVID-19 vaccination must register for an account in advance at patientportalfl.com/s/ or by calling 844-770-8548.

Those who have accounts will receive an alert that appointments are available. Then they can use the same portal, patientportalfl.com/s/, to register for an appointment or call 844-770-8548.

Residents must bring a photo I.D. to the appointment. Those who register online must bring a printed or digital copy of the email they received from county health officials, including the QR code.

Vaccines will only be given to Florida residents, officials say. But Floridians who have an address outside of Pasco County are eligible to receive a vaccine at a county clinic.

There will be no first-dose vaccinations in the coming week at the Sears Auto Center at Gulf View Square Mall at 9409 U.S. 19 in Port Richey. That location will only be handling second-dose appointments on Tuesday and Thursday.

Those awaiting their second dose of the coronavirus vaccine who registered online will receive an email from CDRM Health No-Reply and this email address: no-reply@cdrmhealth.com. The emails should go out by Monday.

Those who did not register online will receive a phone call and must bring the vaccination card they received at their first appointment. Second-dose vaccinations will not be given out without an appointment.

Vaccines will only be made available for Florida residents, according to the county’s Department of Health. Floridians who have an address outside of Pasco County are eligible to receive the vaccine, however.

Those who have already received one dose of the coronavirus vaccine are guaranteed a second appointment.
