Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen,

The US continues to make progress regarding vaccinations with an additional 23 million doses completed since previous release. At this point, 202 million vaccinations have been performed from the 259 million doses delivered to qualified vaccination sites. The results reflect over 38% of the US population receiving at least one(1) dose and almost 25% of the country fully vaccinated. Currently, 80% of people 65 years or older have received at least one dose and 64.6% are fully vaccinated. The CDC’s data tracker regarding vaccinations can be found here: https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccinations

Nationally, COVID-19-related emergency department visits as well as both hospital admissions and current hospitalizations have risen among patients ages 18 to 64 years in recent weeks. The good news is that this activity for people ages 65 and older have decreased, likely demonstrating the important role vaccination plays in protecting against COVID-19.

The recent CDC and FDA recommendation to pause Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccination will slow the progress somewhat while investigations take place. To learn more about the CDC and FDA guidance regarding the recommendation click here.

TRAVELERS
 
Florida is one of the top travel destinations in the world and there are currently no travel restrictions in place. If you are able, get fully vaccinated for COVID-19. State parks, hotels, and attractions are taking precautions to protect guests, but you should assess your risk and that of your family’s prior to traveling.
 
DOMESTIC TRAVEL RECOMMENDATIONS – Fully Vaccinated

Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen,
 
The US continues to make progress regarding vaccinations. At this point, patients in the U.S. have received 92 million doses of Pfizer, 81 million doses of Moderna and over 5 million doses of J&J vaccines. This equates to 179 million doses of the 233 million delivered to vaccination sites across the county. Specific to Florida, 11 million doses have been administered of the supplied 15 million doses.  The CDC’s data tracker regarding vaccinations can be found here: https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccinations
 
COVID-19 vaccination will help protect you from getting COVID-19. You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection against the SARS-2 virus. Some of these side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities but they will subside within a day or two.

HELPFUL TIPS
 
Talk to you doctor about taking over-the-counter medicine, such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen or aspirin for any pain and discomfort you may experience after vaccination. The CDC provides you can take these medications to relieve post-vaccination side effects if you have no other medical reasons that prevent you from taking these medications normally.
 
It is not recommended you take these medicines before vaccination for the purpose of trying to prevent side effects.

WHEN TO CALL THE DOCTOR
 
In most cases, the side effects are a normal sign that your body is building protection. Contact you doctor or healthcare provider:

  • If the redness or tenderness at the injection site gets worse after 24 hours
  • If you side effects are worrying you and do not seem to be going away after a few days

 
REMEMBER
 
After you are fully vaccinated for COVID-19, you should keep taking precautions in public places, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, and washing your hands often.
