LAKELAND, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 16, 2021--

In all seven states in which Publix operates, the company’s online reservation system will remain continuously open to book available appointments to receive the Moderna COVID-19 vaccination, as long as we continue to receive vaccine doses and barring unforeseen circumstances. With this change, customers no longer need to wait for a specific day to make an appointment, and times will be added as they become available. However, appointments may not be available at all locations at all times.

The system is currently open for appointments in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and Virginia. Appointments for Publix pharmacies in Alabama, North Carolina and Tennessee will be added to the system starting Monday, April 19, at 7 a.m. Eastern time for appointments beginning Friday, April 23.
