ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida continues to report thousands of coronavirus cases as vaccination efforts continue statewide.
The Florida Department of Health in Orange County is offering a mobile vaccination clinic Monday that will run through Friday at Barber Park on Gatlin Avenue.
There will be limited walk-ups for the clinic from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., though the window could be shortened if crews administer the daily allotment of vaccines. For more information on this mobile vaccination clinic, click here.
Along with an increase in Floridians who have been vaccinated, the state is seeing a rise in COVID-19 cases. Within the last week, 37,864 new cases have been reported, marking a 6.37% increase as of Saturday’s data.
More than 7 million people have been vaccinated in Florida nearly one week after FEMA-backed sites transitioned to administering Johnson & Johnson doses.
This next week, the state is receiving about 276,000 fewer doses of the J&J vaccine compared to its last allocation.
Despite the cut of J&J single-dose vaccines, officials with the Florida Division of Emergency Management said they do not believe the fewer doses will impact overall vaccination efforts as this vaccine is primarily used by FEMA-backed vaccine sites and one-day mobile vaccination clinics.
