Millennium Physician Group has once again rallied around its patients during this pandemic to now offer Millennium patients the opportunity to pre-register themselves for the COVID-19 vaccine. Patients sign up and are then notified when it’s time to get the shot.
All Millennium patients have to do is visit MillenniumPhysician.com to be directed to the vaccine self-registration website. Once on the website, patients will be prompted to enter some basic information to be automatically placed in line. Once a vaccine becomes available, patients will receive an email or text prompting them to choose a time, date and location at which to get vaccinated.
In accordance with new Florida guidelines effective today, patients who are 60 and over, Millennium’s own healthcare workers with direct patients contact, and patients under 60 deemed ‘extremely vulnerable’ to COVID-19 are eligible to pre-register.
“It’s been so heart-breaking to hear stories about our patients and others who’ve become anxious trying to find a vaccine,” says Millennium Chief Medical Officer Alejandro Perez-Trepichio, MD. “We are thrilled to be able to offer this easy option, providing patients the peace of mind they need in a pandemic. No more calling the office, no more logging onto websites. The system will notify them when their vaccine is ready.”
Millennium is the first physician practice to adapt the ShareCare software, which powers the state of Florida’s pre-registration system.
“Our team worked with ShareCare to re-engineer the site in a matter of days to make it do what we needed,” says Millennium Chief Innovation Officer Jeffrey Nelson. “The pandemic has provided us so many opportunities to meet the needs of our patients in new ways. I couldn’t be prouder of the talent and determination our team has shown.”
The first appointments through Millennium’s patient vaccine self-registration website will be scheduled for Monday, March 22. “As we continue to experience this pandemic and its far-reaching negative influences in all of our lives, let’s do everything we can to overcome it,” says Dr. Perez-Trepichio. “Let’s be proactive and get vaccinated; united we’ll reach the finish line.”
