Publix reopens vaccine portal on Monday for Moderna shots
ORLANDO, Fla. - Publix reopened its COVID-19 vaccine registration portal on Monday morning.
The Florida-based grocery chain said that it opened at 7 a.m. EST.
Those who register will receive the two-dose Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Publix used to offer the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, but it is currently on pause as federal health officials investigate reports of rare but potentially dangerous blood clots.
Florida residents can book their appointment at publix.com/covidvaccine.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, said that he expects a decision on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to come this week, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will meet Friday to discuss the pause. He believes that the CDC will likely move to resume use of the vaccine.
