Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced the State of Florida’s distribution plan for this week’s allocation of the COVID-19 vaccine. The Governor also recognized statewide progress on vaccine distribution.
“Thanks to our state’s strong partnership with the federal government and Florida hospitals, more than 146,000 individuals have been vaccinated in Florida, including front-line health care workers, staff and residents of long-term care facilities and individuals 65 and older,” said Governor DeSantis. “This week, Florida will receive over 120,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine and will distribute these doses to hospitals and county health departments that have not previously received the vaccine. As a result, all 67 Florida counties will have received doses of the vaccine by the end of the week. Florida is also receiving over 118,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine to begin administering the second dose of this vaccine at the original five pilot hospitals.”
