In the last seven months, more than 19 million doses of coronavirus vaccines have been administered to Florida residents 12 and older.
That means about 55 percent of Floridians have received at least their first dose while 45 percent have received two as of June 10. (Moderna and Pfizer require two doses, while Johnson & Johnson requires one.)
Now that vaccines are available at most pharmacies, community pop-ups and other sources, we wonder: Why aren’t more Floridians getting vaccinated?
A recent federal survey found that 12 percent of residents described themselves as “hesitant” about receiving the vaccine, while 8 percent said they were “unsure” of the reason they haven’t gotten vaccinated yet.
