FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. – Flagler County announced on its website Tuesday it is putting new vaccine appointments on hold as it moves to the state’s new appointment system.

The county says it is working with the state to assist in the launch of Florida’s new appointment system. That system will be available no later than Feb. 8, according to officials.
