One and Done — Where to Get the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine in South Florida

Update, June 3: Officials have announced new pop-up sites for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine around Miami. More details are included below.

Ready for this pandemic to be over? The Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 shot is pretty much the quickest route to your post-vax life. Because the vaccine requires only one dose, you can get your shot and be considered fully vaccinated two weeks later.

While the two-dose Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are a bit more effective at preventing symptomatic cases of COVID, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is still a great option, especially for the needle-phobic or anyone who might not be able to take two days off of work to get jabbed.

If you're a Florida resident 18 or older, you're eligible for a (free!) Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Here's where to find it.
