In order to be eligible, they ask you to show proof of Florida residency, provide a doctor’s note, which must show the patient’s name, the medical condition they’re being treated for, the physician’s recommendation/order for a COVID-19 vaccine, and the doctor’s signature.

Over the last two months, Jackson Health System says they have vaccinated more than 85,000 people.
