Mass vaccination events at UF Health bring a busy first week, thousands of doses administered

“The state’s been great about getting the supply to us and we expect that to continue, but just trying to juggle that — it’s always a logistical challenge to make sure you’ve got the right amount of the right vaccine at the right time,” he said. “We’re kind of a super-site right now in terms of our vaccination demand and the uptake, and so we just need to make sure that our supply continues to meet that demand. We expect it will… we wanna just make sure we balance it just right.” The largest logistical challenge, he said, is ensuring enough vaccine supply is available to meet the demand UF Health is seeing. He said he encourages everyone to register for appointments and come on time to keep the vaccine rollout operating as smoothly as possible. Additionally, he encouraged UF students to get their first doses as quickly as possible, citing the high efficacy of immunity from the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

In the first mass vaccination event on Monday, Lauzardo said nearly 5,100 doses were administered. He said about five thousand vaccines are being administered four days each week. Over a hundred people were in line for doses Wednesday afternoon, but Lauzardo said the line generally moved quickly. “We filled 20,000 slots this first week, we’ll have 20,000 available next week as well, and hopefully we’ll have the continued demand for the vaccine, which appears to be the case,” Lauzardo said.

“It’s busy, but the line keeps moving and we’re vaccinating a student about every five seconds,” he said. After two days of vaccinations, UF Health Doctor Michael Lauzardo said UF Health is on its way to meet that goal.

“Definitely, I’m relieved,” Rutledge said. “I can, you know, go back to the gym, I can go back to church. I’m not excited for the line, but I am excited to finally, kind of, get this out of the way and be able to go back to some type of normal — a new normal.” Allison and Samantha Epstein, UF students as well as twins, also said they were grateful to get vaccinated and be able to see their family again. UF alumna Jasmine Rutledge said she was excited to get vaccinated.

“Super easy — basically the same as scheduling for a test, just went on my ONE.UF and scheduled it as soon as I found out it was available,” University of Florida senior Quinn Bowden said. People in line to get vaccinated called the registration process generally “easy” and “seamless.”
