Jacksonville, Fla. — According to the Center for Disease Control’s COVID-19 Data Tracker, Florida has administered less than 40% of its allotted vaccines so far.
Florida has administered less than 40% of its allotted vaccines so far -- administering 774,485 doses across the state.
Action News Jax broke down a county by county comparison to see who’s been allotted the most vaccines. As of Friday, Duval County topped the list with a total of 13,767 vaccines administered between the Health Department’s Prime Osborne Center and the City-run Mandarin and Lane Wiley Senior Centers.
The Duval Health Department has the capacity to administer up to 1,000 vaccines a day and appointments are booked through next week. The city-run sites are administering 975 doses a day and has enough vaccines for 10,750 people to get both doses.
Here’s a county by county break down:
Statewide: 774,485 doses administered
- Duval: 1.7% / 13,767 doses
- St. Johns: .6% / 4300 doses
- Clay: .5% / 3800 doses
- Nassau: .1% / 850 doses
Nassau County had the fewest doses allotted, but the director of Emergency Management, Greg Foster, told Action News Jax’s Robert Grant that he expects another shipment early next week. The limited supply is adding to some of the frustration in the county. Foster expects to administer about 24,000 people in the 65 and up category.
Nassau and Clay Counties both did not receive any additional shipments this week.
St. Johns County got another 500 doses, which were administered Friday.
All Clay County vaccines are booked through the end of January. In a statement, the county told Action News Jax, “We don’t have any available appointments currently, but hope to receive more doses next week and therefore open up appointment scheduling again. We will announce any available appointments late Wednesday morning, and then the portal to sign up will open at 3pm that same Wednesday.”
