Lakeland-based food giant Publix announced that the website, where seniors can sign up for the COVID-19 vaccination at one of its numerous Florida locations, will be at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, January 27, and at 6 a.m. on Friday Opens again at 6 a.m. January 29th.

Tomorrow’s registration window is for Thursday and Friday slots, while the Friday window is for weekend reservations. For those of you who are 65 years of age and older and can prove that you are a Florida resident, the registration site is publix.com/covid-vaccine/florida.

The state’s partnership with the food chain to host the vaccination program now includes 261 locations in 20 counties. Each place can give around 100-125 vaccines per day.

Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties are not currently on the list.

Demand for the vaccine has been extremely high, which is why both DeSantis and Publix received criticism last week for offering the treatments only in locations within Republicans who firmly won the 2020 election.

« I think what differs like a Duval from a Flagler or a Collier is that Duval has a really strong hospital system, » DeSantis said. « They have a lot of hospitals, a lot of them have been dosed. I know that people took pictures in some of these different places. »

While he says there is no link, it’s worth noting that Publix recently donated $ 100,000 to the PAC for DeSantis re-election.
