AdventHealth to Begin Distributing COVID-19 Vaccines in Florida as Early as Next Week
While extensive COVID-19 health and safety regulations are in place at the Central Florida theme parks like Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort, for many guests, especially those out-of-state, a trip might not be feasible until vaccines are widely available and those at risk can immunize themselves against the virus.
According to Fox 35 Orlando, AdventHealth, the health provider and official partner of Walt Disney World, held a briefing this morning where it was announced that COVID-19 vaccinations could be distributed as early as Monday or Tuesday of next week with FDA approval, which would grant emergency use authorization for the vaccine.
AdventHealth is one of the first hospitals in Florida to receive the vaccines, which must be stored at –70 degrees Celsius. Vaccine distribution would take place as soon as they arrive at their facilities.
No major safety issues or drastic side effects were reported with the vaccine.
