Clay County did not receive any additional allotments of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine this week from the Florida Division of Emergency Management, John Ward, the county’s director of Emergency Management, announced Wednesday.

That means there will be no vaccination appointments opening up this week, Ward said in a video on Clay County Emergency Management’s Facebook page.

“Unfortunately, this week, we did not get any. There’s been a lot of sites opening up throughout the state that they’re really trying to spread the limited doses to,” Ward said. “We’ve been assured from starting next week that we should start getting a weekly allocation of doses. Those numbers are going to change on a regular basis.”

Ward said that starting next week, Emergency Management will be releasing information by noon on Wednesday to its social media platforms and to the media about any additional vaccine doses that the county receives. Then at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, the online portal at Alert.ClayCountyGov.com will open.

“Right now, there are very minimal doses coming in,” Ward said. “Last week, we did the 800 doses, and they filled up in 16 minutes, so that’s kind of what we’re looking at right now.”
