Miami-Dade County, Florida – Tuesday was another busy day at Miami Dade College’s North Campus, expanding the qualification pool to include all adults.
So many people came out for the first dose on Tuesday morning, so authorities urged those who needed a second dose to wait until the less crowded afternoon.
Florida Emergency Management Agency spokesman Mike Jackles said there’s another line for those who need a second dose, but coming late in the afternoon, the process will be much faster. Let’s go.
Starting Tuesday, 3,000 Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be given daily at Miami Dade College North.
They will receive an additional 1,000 doses on Tuesday and will perform the first 3,000 doses by noon.
The Pfizer dose currently distributed is only the second dose.
Jachles sought patience as he strives to vaccinate people as soon as possible.
“I want to get back to normal in the future, and I think the only way to do that is to get vaccinated and move forward,” said Ron Bali, who traveled from Boca Raton to a FEMA-funded hub. It states.
The dizygotic twins Lucas and Ligraham, 17, went to the scene on Monday with their mother because children over the age of 16 could be vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine when they brought their parents.
It is the only vaccine approved for that age group.
In Florida, more than 6.3 million people have received at least one shot.
In Miami-Dade County, more than 808,000 people have received at least one shot.
And in Broward, that’s over 565,000.
“In order to keep wearing the mask and get vaccinated, these are the two most important things we all have to do,” said Daniella Levine Cava, Mayor of Miami-Dade County.
Levine Cava said the success of the vaccination program and the reduced mortality rate from COVID-19 contributed to her decision to end the county’s curfew.
“The curfew will be lifted next Monday, April 12,” she announced on Monday.
