Pulmonary Sleep & Critical Care Specialists would like to stress the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine. It is our belief that anyone in the following groups should get the vaccine: Persons 65 years of age and older, Long term care facility residents and facility staff, Healthcare personnel, and persons deemed extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 by hospital providers.

Because our Critical Care Physicians, Physicians Assistants and Nurse Practitioners have direct contact with COVID-19 positive patients on a daily basis at area hospitals, we will not be offering the vaccine in our offices.

To schedule an appointment for a vaccine with the Charlotte County Health Department, please call: 866-200-9160. You can also text CharCoCares to 888-777 to receive updates about vaccine appointment openings.

Also several Publix supermarket locations offer vaccinations by appointment only. Register online: Appointments cannot be made by phone and no walk-ups will be accepted.

To obtain more information about the COVID-19 vaccine in Charlotte County go to: or call 866-779-6121. 

The Florida Department of Health has released a new website to pre-register for COVID-19 vaccine appointments and receive notifications when appointments are available. To pre-register now, go to:

Your safety is our first priority! Please continue to follow the CDC guidelines and practice social distancing, wash your hands and wear your mask.
