COVID-19 Update


If you experience a problem with any web links or otherwise have any questions or concerns, please email or call 247-5804. Please note, recently posted information has two red asterisks (**) before the headline. Last update: January 28, 2021.


Atlantic Beach Mayor Ellen Glasser and City Manager Shane Corbin have extended the city’s State of Emergency declarations and emergency measures and expect to renew them for the foreseeable future.


The cities of Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville Beach, and Neptune Beach have received many inquiries on when beaches citizens will be able to receive recently approved and distributed COVID-19 Vaccinations. Our local municipal governments do not have control over distribution or access to vaccines; this is being handled by the Florida Department of Health and the Florida Department of Health in Duval County.

We applaud and support the incredible work of everyone working on distributing the vaccine to Duval County residents as quickly and safely as possible in an ever-changing environment.

As of January 21, the vaccines are only available to the following groups in Duval County:

  • Long-term care facility residents and staff
  • Persons 65 years of age and older
  • Health care personnel with direct patient contact
  • Persons deemed to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 by hospital providers

(Jan. 22, 2021) From the City of Jacksonville: The City of Jacksonville has distributed its allotted supply of the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. We are grateful for the opportunity to provide this crucial vaccine to our citizens. The Lane Wiley and Mandarin senior centers will now prepare to provide the second dose to patients. Please remember that anyone who has received the first dose of the vaccine at either of these two centers should return to the same location, 21 days later, to receive the second dose. The State of Florida’s Department of Emergency Management is now leading all vaccine distribution in Duval County at the Regency Mall facility. Please call 866-200-3762 to make an appointment.

Jan. 28, 2021) From the City of Jacksonville:  For those getting their 2nd COVID-19 vaccine dose at City-run sites, you must return to the same location that you got your 1st dose.  You will receive a phone call the day before your 2nd dose is due as a reminder.  Please fill out and bring the consent form as you did the first time. You can find that here:

  • For your 2nd dose, your last name begins with A,B,C, or D, come to the site between 9-10am
  • E,F,G,H: 10-11am
  • I,J,K,L: 11-Noon
  • M,N,O,P: Noon-1pm
  • Q,R,S,T: 1-2pmU,V,W: 2-3pm
  • X,Y,Z: 3-4pm
  • If you cannot come at your specified time, please come between 4-5pm
For complete and up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 and Vaccine Distribution visit This page details where to get a vaccine, who is eligible on what day, form requirements, and more. As of January 12, vaccines at these locations are first-come, first-served; no appointments are available.

Beaches Mayors Glasser, Brown, and Hoffman are in regular communication with Duval County officials and will continue to work to keep Beaches residents updated and informed. Visit for City of Atlantic Beach COVID-19 updates/ information.
