Channel 9 continues our efforts to monitor who has the vaccine and which communities have already run out.
We wanted to know how many first doses each county has versus how many appointments they have booked, and the same thing with the second doses. But it’s been easier to get that information in some counties than others.
The Orange County Department of Health will start giving its first batch of second doses on Saturday at the Convention Center.
Officials said the department does have enough vaccines to cover all the second appointments.
The health department has about 19,300 first doses and 16,000 second doses, and all of them are spoken for with appointments.
The Orlando VA Healthcare System said it has enough second doses to cover all veterans who received their fist shot with them, but it does not know when it will get more first doses.
Seminole County currently has about 8,700 first doses with a little more than 8,500 appointments booked.
County officials expect a shipment of about 1,900 vaccines to arrive on Monday or Tuesday.
Seminole County also has about 20,000 second doses on hand with more than 26,000 appointments booked.
The county said it’s not concerned about the difference because not all of those appointments are due yet.
Volusia County has 2,800 doses for its 2,800 appointments booked through Monday.
The county only books appointments when it has doses on hand, and Volusia County does not know when its next shipment is coming yet.
Its first batch of second doses have not arrived yet, but they’re not needed until Feb. 1.
Osceola County said it has about 3,000 doses to cover the same amount of appointments scheduled through the end of the month.
Its next shipment of second doses is coming next week, but the county does not know when it will receive another batch of first doses.
Channel 9′s Lauren Seabrook also reached out to Polk, Marion, Sumter, Flagler, Brevard and Lake counties but has not heard back yet.
