COVID-19 cases are rising again all over the country, and nearly all new hospitalizations and deaths have been attributed to those who are unvaccinated. At a White House Covid briefing on Friday, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky warned of a "pandemic among the unvaccinated" as cases increased to about 70% over the last week.
In response, the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County is offering appointments for the Pfizer-BioNTech and Johnson & Johnson’s Jannsen COVID-19 vaccine at three Miami-Dade locations.
The vaccines will be offered by appointment at the following locations:
• Health District Center
1350 NW 14 Street, Miami Florida 33125
• Little Haiti Clinic
300 NE 80 Terrace, Miami Florida 33138
• West Perrine Clinic
18255 Homestead Avenue, Miami Florida 33157
The Pfizer BioNTech vaccine is available to those 12 and older. Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine is available to those 18 and older.
The DOH is asking for people to schedule an appointment using this link. The department advises using Google Chrome as a web browser.
Anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and complete the COVID-19 vaccine screening and consent form.
Vaccine access and eligibility is expanded to any individual in Florida who is present in Florida for the purpose of providing goods or services for the benefit of residents and visitors of the state, according to a public health advisory from the State Surgeon General from April 2021.
