MIAMI (CBSMiami) – With the Johnson & Johnson vaccine paused, all-state run FEMA-funded sites, including the one at Miami Dade College North Campus, have resumed 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.READ MORE: Just In Time For Cinco De Mayo: Learn How To Make A Classic Margarita & Delicious Guacamole
Those that are 16 and 17 years olds are eligible to receive a Pfizer shot but must have a parent or guardian present.
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. The main thing is you must be a Florida resident and age 16 and up.”READ MORE: Small Business Week: Miami-Dade Launches ‘Strive 305’ Initiative To Empower Local Biz Owners
