ORANGE COUNTY, Florida – FEMA-operated vaccination centers across Florida are scheduled to start delivering first doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine starting next week.

The Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Jacksonville sites originally planned to offer doses of the unique Johnson & Johnson vaccine. However, these recordings are being interrupted due to a rare reaction under investigation by the FDA and CDC.

The state plans to resume first doses at federal government-sponsored vaccination sites, including those on the west campus of Valencia College, on Tuesday.

Officials said they expect the capacity for the first dose will be lower than the 3,000 doses the site had previously given. However, more information on capacity for the first dose will be available on Monday.
