More than 1.4 million Miami-Dade residents have been vaccinated since the start of the COVID vaccine rollout. That's 1.4 million people who — according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control — are now free to hang out in groups again, ditch the mask indoors and outdoors, and otherwise return to some semblance of normalcy.

For those who are Team Pfizer and still need the jab, here's a list of places offering the Pfizer vaccine in Miami.
