Publix to resume vaccine appointments after severe winter weather delayed shot shipments

The online reservation system will reopen at 7 a.m. on Feb. 26.

TAMPA, Fla — Vaccine appointments at Publix are back after severe winter weather kept shot shipments from being delivered across the U.S.

The grocery chain announced Wednesday that the online reservation system will reopen at 7 a.m. on Feb. 26 for appointments at all 730 stores across the state. 

"Last week’s inclement weather disrupted shipping timelines, resulting in fewer stores having appointment availability. The number of appointments available at each store will also vary," Publix said in a press release.

Publix vaccines are available by appointment only and while supplies last. 

Anyone looking to snag a vaccination appointment will need to visit the store's online reservation system at publix.com/covidvaccine.

Those with appointments for their second dose are not impacted and should check-in on their scheduled date and time.
