GROVELAND, Fla – Two days after opening, a vaccine site at a Groveland Amazon distribution center will no longer offer first doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.
The Department of Health-Lake County released a statement Friday reading, “Due to overwhelming demand for 2nd doses, 1st doses will no longer be available at the Groveland Amazon site.”

When the site first opened on Wednesday, the plan was to administer first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine in the morning, cutting off the first-come, first-served line once capacity was reached and then reopening exclusively for second doses in the afternoon.
Health officials announced Wednesday that the center will be open Monday through Friday until further notice. Vaccinations begin at 8 a.m. each day.
