Lee County officials gave an update Tuesday afternoon on the distribution of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

Commissioner Chairman Kevin Ruane, Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno, Angela Smith, the Florida Department of Health-Lee County administrator, and other officials attended.

“We absolutely were not expecting to have 1,000 people lined up by 7 o’clock this morning in Bonita, and so we increased the number of doses that we had allocated for that site because we felt that was only fair that we do so,’ Smith said. “But it’s truly contingent on the supply, and as you know from a national perspective, that supply chain is relatively uncertain right now.”
