These are the last days you can get your first dose of the Pfizer vaccine at the federal vaccination center in Orlando, an official said.

The federal vaccination officer on the West Campus of Valencia College confirmed to FOX 35 Thursday that the last day the first doses of Pfizer vaccine will be distributed will be Tuesday May 4th.

They said this is being done so that anyone who got their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine can get their second shot before the website closes on May 26th.

The federal vaccination agency also sells Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approved the use of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine last Friday. The public health department said the benefits outweigh the risks, although more than a dozen women develop rare blood clots after receiving the vaccine.

The Orlando federal vaccination center resumed distribution on Sunday, but the following day an official confirmed that 90 percent of the daily supply at the FEMA Orlando site remained unused after the 11-day hiatus.
