The COVID-19 testing site at Hard Rock Stadium is now a vaccination site, as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said the state is preparing to send out another shipment of the vaccine.
DeSantis made a stop in Miami Gardens where, Hard Rock Stadium started drive-thru COVID-19 vaccinations.
“Just come through the line, do the paperwork, get the shot, and then wait, and then they’re off for the rest of the day,” DeSantis said.
Officials said the site is able to give out 1,000 shots a day. Appointments are required.
“What they have set up is a soft opening to make sure things are working well,” DeSantis said, “so they’re doing two lanes of cars through for the vaccinations, and that’s gonna be the case for the next couple of days, and then we’re gonna be expanding it and providing the general public with ways that they can get appointments.”
Seniors were seen lining up in Miami, as Jackson Health rolled into the second day of vaccine distributions. 32,000 doses have been given out to frontline healthcare workers and county residents 65 and up.
Marlins Park is also in the process of being transformed into a COVID-19 vaccination site. It remains unknown when that site will start operating.
