AstraZeneca seeks emergency approval by FDA to be used in US; South Florida FEMA vaccination sites relocate – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports

SWEETWATER, FLA. (WSVN) – It has been easy crusing at Federal Emergency Management Agency vaccination sites in South Florida, as a fourth vaccine maker is trying to get its shot accepted in the United States.

Hundreds of residents acquired their photographs on the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center and at Charles Hadley Park on Tuesday.

“Once you’re inside, it’s like 25 to 30 minutes,” mentioned one man who acquired his vaccine.

“They are very very organized,” one lady mentioned. “They have a lot of people helping you inside.”

“This option was attractive to me and it was easy enough, and so I hope it’s just as easy for everyone else,” one man mentioned.

The two areas are a part of a rotating vaccination system. They will relocate to Ronselli Park in Sweetwater and the Florida City Youth Activity Center at 9 a.m. on Wednesday.

7News cameras captured individuals already lining up to obtain their second dose of the vaccine earlier than 6 a.m.

The state on Tuesday reported 5,300 new instances of the virus and a positivity rate of 6.5%.

To assist reign in the pandemic, AstraZeneca plans to search emergency use by the FDA.

While some are involved in regards to the drug’s security, one infectious illness knowledgeable, Dr. Aileen Marty, mentioned the proof isn’t there.

“It’s not something that we have the data to support at this time, so it may be just as safe as other vaccines,” she mentioned.

With Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson already vaccinating tens of tens of millions of individuals weekly, Marty mentioned AstraZeneca might be too late to the sport.

“We don’t necessarily need an additional vaccine in the United States at this time,” she mentioned.
