Lee Health expects a surge in COVID19 vaccine supply
LEE COUNTY, Fla.– Lee Health officials held a press conference on Friday morning about the COVID-19 vaccine.
The President and CEO of Lee Health, Dr. Larry Antonucci, stressed the importance of people getting their shot.
Dr. Antonucci said they are seeing younger people with COVID-19. He encouraged young adults to sign up for their shot.
Lee Health officials said they support the J&J pause to allow more research to be done.
If the CDC changes those guidelines, they do have 500 J&J doses in storage.
For now, they are encouraging people to get Moderna or Pfizer. Next week, Lee Health will get 1,500 doses. They expect shipments to increase.
In the coming weeks, healthcare professionals believe there will be more vaccines than the amount of people signing up. They hope everyone in the community will get their vaccines.
