County officials said the demand for the vaccine is currently much greater than the existing supply, and they are working to make them available to the community as fast as new supplies are received.

In a statement issued Sunday evening, Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said, “Our county is working hard alongside hospitals, cities and the state to distribute vaccines as fast as we receive them, to protect our community and keep our economy moving forward.”

Anyone with questions and concerns about the coronavirus can call the Florida Department of Health’s 24-hour hotline at 1-866-779-6121.
