ORLANDO, Fla. - State vaccination efforts are at a slight standstill due to the Johnson & Johnson vaccines being put on hold. Now, FEMA is planning to switch back to offering first doses of the Pfizer vaccine, along with second doses officials have already been giving out.
The state is planning to resume first doses at the federally-supported vaccination sites on Tuesday, assuming the CDC and FDA have not given further guidance on whether the sites can go back to administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Right now, officials said they anticipate first dose capacity will be lower than the 3,000 doses the site was previously administering.
However, more information on first dose capacity will be available on Monday, according to the Florida Division of Emergency Management.
For now, the unused Johnson & Johnson shots will remain stored away in refrigerators at the Orange County Health Department until a final decision is made.
