[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Vaccination Pre-registration Survey

An important message regarding COVID-19 vaccinations.


From Mayor Patrick Soranno


Dear  Residents and Property Owners of Indian Shores age 65 and over,

The county is conducting a vaccination *pre-registration survey to determine a rollout strategy.

I encourage each of you that are age 65 and over to complete this pre-registration survey.  The county will use this information to create a geographical strategy in rolling out the vaccine.

The year 2020 was a difficult one for all of us.  These vaccines hold the promise of a return to a normal way of life for our community in 2021 and I encourage each of you to carefully consider the need to be inoculated against the Coronavirus.

Barbara and I plan to be vaccinated as soon as possible to expedite returning our lives back to normal and hope you will join with us.

Happy New Year to you and your families.

Mayor Pat Soranno



From Chief Rick Swann


*DISCLAIMER:  

IMPORTANT:  COMPLETING THIS SURVEY DOES NOT REGISTER YOU FOR AN APPOINTMENT TO RECEIVE THE VACCINE.  Visit the Florida Department of Health or Pinellas County's websites for more information on how to register for an appointment.

The survey link from Pinellas County Emergency Management (PCEM) was initially intended for limited distribution only to the designated 55+ communities. The survey is intended to aid in identifying population interests in the vaccine throughout the county and using the data to aid them in developing a road map for future vaccine distribution.

After conferring with PCEM and other Beach Community Mayors, several Mayors determined that given the large number of 55+ residents residing in their communities, the information should be disseminated town-wide.

Please know that the PCEM has expressed some concerns that with broader distribution than originally intended, the website may exceed capacity and become overwhelmed.  This may result in issues and delays in accessing the link, so please be patient.

There will be additional communication in the coming days and we will keep you updated.
