Florida state vaccination sites are transitioning from the two-dose Pfizer vaccine to the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Florida state vaccination sites are transitioning from the two-dose Pfizer vaccine to the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

On Tuesday, April 6, the Florida Division of Emergency Management will transition to administering the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine at state-supported vaccination sites. The organization announced on Friday, April 2 that four major sites in Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa and Miami will be making the switch.

Up to 3,000 one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be administered per day, per site. Those who have already received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine will still be able to get their second dose at these sites; however, as of today, Monday, April 5, the first dose of Pfizer will no longer be offered at these sites.

This change will help to reduce confusion surrounding the first- and second-dose appointment days and times that come with the other vaccine options.
