With more than 6 million Floridians vaccinated against COVID-19 and millions seeking an inoculation, on Monday, state Attorney General Ashley Moody encouraged vigilance against vaccine-related scams.
Florida is leading among all states in vaccinations of individuals 65 years of age and older. In addition to more than 1 million seniors vaccinated, the state is on track to have offered the COVID-19 vaccine to every resident and staff member in Florida’s almost 700 nursing homes and over 3,000 assisted living facilities by the end of the month.
“Through a partnership with FDEM and FDOH, Publix is receiving 15,000 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to launch a new pilot program at 22 select Publix Supermarkets, beginning Friday, January 8. Appointments can be made beginning Thursday, January 7,” the governor’s office noted.
“This week, Florida will receive over 120,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine and will distribute these doses to hospitals and county health departments that have not previously received the vaccine. As a result, all 67 Florida counties will have received doses of the vaccine by the end of the week. Florida is also receiving over 118,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine to begin administering the second dose of this vaccine at the original five pilot hospitals.”
Last week, Gov. Ron DeSantis offered an update on the matter after speaking with federal officials and executives from CVS and Walgreens.
