How to register for an appointment:

By Phone:

  • Call 954-276-4340 Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm to register for an appointment or login to MyChart as your child proxy/caregiver. Given the high volume of calls, you may experience longer than normal wait times.

  • Adolescents who have an existing MyChart account or caregiver with proxy access (caregiver access) to a teen's MyChart account, can login to schedule an appointment 
  • If you need proxy access to an adolescent's account to make the appointment visit our proxy account information page for instructions on how to request access
  • If you or your adolescent is using the website version of MyChart to schedule and appointment, after logging in, choose "Visits" and then "Schedule an Appointment"
  • If you or your adolescent is using the mobile app version of MyChart, after logging in, choose "Appointments" and then "Schedule an Appointment"
  • If you are unfamiliar with MyChart we have created a step-by-step guide on how to schedule a vaccine appointment
  • If your adolescent doesn't have a MyChart account please schedule the appointment by phone.

Second dose appointment

You can schedule your second dose appointment as soon as you receive your first dose. We recommend using MyChart for scheduling; however, you can also call 954-276-4340 Monday — Friday 8 am to 5 pm. Please be advised of longer than usual wait times due to high volume of calls.

Remember to bring your vaccine card when you return for your second appointment.

What should I expect when I arrive for my appointment?

  • Vaccines will be provided only by appointment.
  • Only one parent/guardian is allowed with the patient, and parent must be present at the time of the vaccine administration. Please do not bring younger siblings with you to the vaccine site.

  • Wear a shirt or top with the upper arm accessible.
