Florida DOH data indicates 2.6 million people have been vaccinated so far
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV/WWSB) - More than 4 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to more than 2.6 million people across the state so far, according to new data from the Florida Department of Health.
Gov. Ron DeSantis, speaking Wednesday in Manatee County, recognized the heavy demand for vaccinations.
“There’s still very strong demand because we have 4.5 million seniors, and you have many that want it, and as you do more and more chunks -- and you’re doing 400,000 a week -- that’s going to make a big dent in that,” said Governor Ron DeSantis.
Data released over the weekend by the Florida Department of Health shows 41,781 people in Leon County have been vaccinated so far. That’s about 16,000 first doses and about 25,000 people who have received second doses of the vaccine.
