Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced additional COVID-19 vaccination sites across the state of Florida on Tuesday through the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program.
“Florida is proud to partner with Walmart and other retailers, including Publix, to expand access to the COVID-19 vaccine,” Governor DeSantis said. “Through the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program, we look forward to reaching more Floridians and ensuring that all eligible residents who want a vaccine can receive one. We will continue to use strategic partnerships and identify innovative ways to get more shots and prioritize the elderly in Florida.
For the first week of the federal retail pharmacy program, the state expects to receive 65,300 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Future allocations under this program will be announced as they become available.
