ADA Assistance for Vaccinations

In Manatee County those persons with disabilities that cannot make it to vaccination sites can use the County’s 311 Call Center. When contacting 311, a representative will assist the disabled person in making accommodations for them to be transported to the vaccination location. A list is generated by the 311 staff, and then sent to MCAT, who orchestrates rides to and from vaccination sites. This is done on a fairly regular basis at convenient times during the late morning and early afternoon.

Additionally, as part of the Florida Home-bound program, those individuals seeking help getting to a vaccination site, or requesting that they get vaccinated at home can utilize the State’s Florida Homebound program. Simply email HomeboundVaccine@em.myflorida.com and note “home-bound” in the subject material to reach someone from the state who can help or fill out this online form.
