The Covid vaccine has arrived, but it’s not yet in your doctor’s hands or at the corner CVS or Walgreens. The distribution in our area has been limited to NCH, the Collier Department of Health and now Publix. The distribution will improve, but it will take time. It is still limited to specific groups, the largest being those over age 65. We expect availability to increase exponentially as manufacturing is ramped up and additional approval will come soon for a new vaccine from Johnson & Johnson.
We can only suggest patience while waiting for the supply to increase, and your continued vigilance of websites that have previously had supplies available. These sites are NCH, the Collier Department of Health, and Publix stores.
Your best defense against Covid remains the same. Wear a mask, social distance and wash hands thoroughly and frequently.
