Coral Gables Fire Department Approved To Distribute COVID-19 Vaccines

The City of Coral Gables Fire Department entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with Miami-Dade County and the State of Florida Department of Health approving the Fire Department as a point of distribution for the COVID 19 Vaccination. The Fire Department is deploying a preliminary plan for the vaccination of residents over the age of 65 with a limited allotment of vaccines.

The Division of Emergency Management, in conjunction with the Miami-Dade County Office of Emergency Management, Department of Health, and Community Health partners are developing a more comprehensive plan that enhances access to our residents to the vaccine.  

Due to the fact that demand is outpacing vaccine supply, we stress to our senior residents to use all available options to schedule an appointment to receive a vaccination as soon as possible. They may visit our City website www.coralgables.com /covid19 for the most up to date information on current sites where they may schedule an appointment.  In the event our seniors have any questions, our City Hotline remains open Monday through Friday at 305.460.5401.

  1. Hilda, that was all the information we got from the city. We have not received any additional updates.

  2. The announcement of the city of Coral Gables about the vaccines was a mockery of intelligence, they announced the vaccine but did not say how to get an appointment or in what specific place to go to get the vaccine. I called the city and they told me they only had 90 vaccines and they already consumed them. I ask the city: THE 90 VACCINES THAT THEY APPLIED TO THOSE WHO GOT THEM, HOW THEY KNEW WHERE TO GO AND HOW TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT BECAUSE THEY DID NOT GIVE THIS INFORMATION IN THE CITY’S ANNOUNCEMENT.

  3. I do not understand why you give us so much information that we cannot use. We need to find out where to sign in to get vaccinated. That is all. The City of Coral Gables returned my first call, but could not help. Please provide us all with that information. Thank you.

  4. I am the caregiver for my elderly father who is 84 years old. I have been trying every site to get him an appointment to no avail. We are Coral Gables residents. Please let me know how to schedule an appointment so he can receive the vaccine. Thank you for your assistance.

  5. Plz let me know if there are any services for my neighbor who is 92, homebound and is battling cancer. He can do a short drive but not crowded places.

  6. I am a senior citizen that has lived in Coral Gables off and on since 1952. I have been vaccinated and am preparing for 2nd appt February 1st with UHealth. I am writing anyway because so many of my Gables friends have been unable to get vaccinated right here in our own city. They were excited to learn about the fire dept’s announcement but were quickly let down. The January edition of the Coral Gables magazine has an editorial on “hope” for the new year and lots of info on where to go for exercise to stay in shape, info on new businesses for 2021 and medical research BUT nothing on vaccines for Coronavirus. It’s never addressed although this concern is the elephant in the room for almost anyone over 65 today. We live in a spectacularly beautiful city but right now most older residents are more concerned about where to get the vaccine than anything else. This is a life & death concern for us. The City Beautiful has failed us.

  8. I am 72 years old and my husband is 79. How are we to get vaccinated if we cannot even register or put our names on a waitlist for this vaccine. I was told by the City Hotline that all the vaccines CG had received were already given out. Who got these vaccine and how were chosen?

  9. THE LOGISTICS THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS, THE STATE GOVERNMENT, MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENTS LIKE THIS CORAL GABLES, IS VERY WRONG, IT IS A DISASTER AND A CONFUSION. So that the City of Coral Gables advises that the Fire Department is approved to give vaccines without further information on where to go or how to make an appointment. If there are not enough vaccines they should put on the website of the City of C.G. a place where city residents over 65 can sign up for a waiting list and when the vaccine is available they will be notified according to their place on the list and told where to go and what time. On the city’s website there is a Codivid19 hot line 305-460-5401 but no one answers what is that for?

  11. Unfortunately, the url link does not work, and nothing on the city website talks about vaccine distribution. Their website appears to be out of date.

  12. My husband (76) and I (72) need the Covid vaccine. We have tried all sites without success. We are Coral Gables residents. Please help!

  13. The information we posted here came from the communications director for the city of coral gables.

  14. I left a phone message as well. My wife (Letty Daniels, (age 84) and I (John Daniels. age 83) have been trying every day through multiple hospitals since late December to schedule covid-19 vaccinations. Is it possible to get our names on the appointment list for the CG Fire Department?
    Thank you,

  15. I just reached out to the CIty of Coral Gables and I was informed that this information provided here on the Gables Insider regarding the Fire Dept being approved to distribute Covid-19 vaccines is not accurate or a fact. It’s quite unsettling to be misinformed by your publication especially when it’s related to health issues

  16. My wife and myself are senior citizens and residents of Coral Gables We will like to have the Covid-19 vaccine administered

  17. My husband and myself need the second dosage of Moderna vaccine. The second dosage is due Feb 5, 2021
    If you can help us please contact us. (My husband is a disabled American Veteran)

  18. Since the supply is limited, why don’t you start with people 75 and over. That will decrease the demand to better match the supply, until more vaccine becomes available

  19. Gentleman, I understand that you’ll be providing Covid-19 vaccinations at the fire department. Please let me know what to do to schedule an appointment to receive a vaccination as soon as possible for my wife and myself at your facility. We are both more than 70 years old and long time residents of the City. Thank you for your attention to this matter. You have my name and email address submitted elsewhere with this email to contact me.
    Thanks
