DOH-Collier will allow people eligible for the vaccine to join a waitlist. You can find the waitlist button by visiting the Eventbrite registration page. When you click register, you will see a list of sold-out dates in addition to a red button that says Join Waitlist.
To get on Collier County’s waitlist, go to this link, click the date you want to join the waitlist for, click “Register” and then click “Join Waitlist” at the bottom. The FDOH told us the waitlist is only for the date and time you sign up for, not for any future openings. You’ll receive an email if there’s a cancellation and it’s your turn to secure an appointment, but keep in mind you’ll only have 12 hours to see that email and respond.
As for the second dose of the vaccine, Collier County says to expect an email 21 days after your first dose to make an appointment for your second.
