“It will be a busy start of the week, but we have a very efficient process,” said Mike Jachles, vaccination site spokesman.
Also starting Monday, those 16 and older will be able to receive a Pfizer shot.
The Pfizer vaccine is currently the only authorized vaccine for individuals under the age of 18.
“Sixteen- and 17-year-olds will be able to get the vaccines with the following conditions: You must be accompanied by your parent or legal guardian and they must have proof that they are your parent or guardian. It can be a birth certificate or a court document. Guardian or parents must also remain with their child through the whole entire process,” said Jachles.
Starting on Tuesday, the FEMA-funded site at Miami Dade College’s North Campus will only be administering Johnson & Johnson vaccines to individuals coming to get their first dose.MORE NEWS: Vince Lago Wins Coral Gables Mayoral Race
