Publix has expanded online reservations for the COVID-19 vaccine to all 730 locations in Florida with in-store pharmacies.

Vaccinations are provided by appointment only for people 65 and older, while supplies last, by going to the online reservation system at publix.com/covidvaccine.

Sixteen stores in Collier County have in-house pharmacies that can provide the shot; Lee County has 32 locations.

All appointments were booked Friday in Collier and Lee, according to the Publix website.

Appointments cannot be made by calling Publix or the Publix Pharmacy.

The online reservation system typically opens at 7 a.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning as long as Publix receives doses from the state and federal governments and barring unforeseen circumstances.

“Appointments may not be available in every county during every scheduling opportunity,” according to a news release.

Customers with appointments for their second dose are not impacted by any variations in scheduling and should arrive at the COVID-19 vaccine check-in area at their scheduled date and time.

There is no cost to customers for the vaccine, but those with insurance need to bring their insurance card to their appointment. Medicare members should bring their red, white and blue Medicare Part B card.

Customers without health insurance will need to provide their driver’s license or Social Security number.
