MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Florida – As of Monday, Miami International Airport will have Pfizer vaccines available.
Vaccines will be available to airport employees, their family and friends, as well as travelers living or working in Florida on select dates starting Monday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and through May 14, and then from June 1 to 4 and June 7.
One of the locations will be a drive through, while the other will be in Hall D of the 4th floor auditorium.
The drive will be installed at 75 Bus Road, Miami, FL 33102 (MIA taxi overflow lot)
The mayor said pop-up vaccination sites are planned for areas where large numbers of people congregate. A one-day site was up and running last month at PortMiami.
“Malls, universities, big construction sites,” Miami-Dade County Mayor Danielle Levine Cava said at the PortMiami event on April 28. “Wherever there are people gathered, we want to remove barriers.”
According to data released by the Florida Department of Health on Saturday, May 8, 369,026 people in Miami-Dade County had received their first dose of the vaccine, while 949,680 had completed the vaccination. In Miami-Dade County, a total of 1,318,706 people have been vaccinated.
Miami-Dade County’s total population estimate in the 2019 census was 2,716,940, which means less than half of the county’s population is vaccinated.
