FEMA-Funded vaccine sites to resume administering first doses of Pfizer Vaccine with J&J shot paused
With the Johnson & Johnson vaccine paused, starting Tuesday, all-state run FEMA-funded sites will resume giving first doses of the Pfizer vaccine.
“It’s for anyone 16 and up with no appointment. So it is a very easy process to get that vaccine,” said Mike Jachles with the Florida Association of Public Information Officers.
A reminder, those that are 16 and 17 years olds are eligible to receive a Pfizer shot but must have a parent or guardian present.
Miami-Dade’s North Campus will be administering first doses of the Pfizer vaccine starting at 7 a.m. on Tuesday.
Jachles said it’ll be quick, stressing, “The goal here is to get the vaccines to as many people that need them. So anyone that wants a vaccine, and needs a vaccine, can get one. Main thing is you must be a Florida resident and age 16 and up.”
In addition to the state-run locations, pop-up sites were administering vaccines in underserved communities on Sunday.
In Miami Gardens, the Norland United Methodist Church gave free vaccines until 7:30 p.m.
In Miami Lakes, the Royal Oaks Park also administered vaccines until 7 p.m.
At Hard Rock Stadium, where the Pfizer vaccine is being administered without an appointment, gates shut at 10 p.m.
