Bunnell, Fla. — The Florida Department of Health in Flagler County (DOH-Flagler) learned Sunday that it would not be sent any doses of Moderna vaccine this week. This is after the department exhausted its final 110 doses yesterday.
“We are disappointed our health department did not receive any doses of COVID-19 vaccine this week,” said Health Officer Robert Snyder. “Of the 254,825 doses being distributed to Florida this week, a considerable amount went to hospitals (the closest to Flagler being Orlando Regional Medical Center), select Publix stores in Marion, Citrus and Hernando counties and some health departments not adjacent to Flagler County. The health department does not know when it will receive additional doses and asks the public to remain patient.”
Distribution of second doses of vaccine should begin after January 23. However, because vaccine supplies are in such high demand and low supply, the health department and Flagler County are awaiting state and federal guidance as to how, where and when second doses will be given.
Testing continues weekday afternoons (except Friday) across from 120 Airport Road near High Jackers Restaurant. Testing is first come, first served and limited to the first 100 guests per site per day. Reminder, these are NOT rapid tests. Results are available in 2 to 3 days.
