Officials have announced that FEMA-supported vaccination sites in South Florida will be transitioning to distribution of second shots only beginning next week.

As of March 24th, the sites will no longer administer doses to new patients. Only those who received their initial Pfizer shot are allowed to come back for their booster shot.

"The important message here is if you need a vaccine, and you meet the criteria, do not wait to come out and get the vaccine, because by midweek next week, we will transition to second shots only," a spokesperson said.

"So you cannot get a first vaccine at the FEMA-supported site."

So far, 61,000 doses of the vaccine have been administered at the sites, which were set up with a scheduled end date: three weeks of Pfizer distribution was the goal.
