ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Health leaders said they don’t believe we will see any major changes to the COVID-19 pandemic until after this summer.
That’s how long they believe it could take to get anywhere near herd immunity.
Orange County has already vaccinated about 3% of its population, which is about 1.4 million people.
There are about 260,000 people over the age of 65 in the county.
About 59,000 vaccine appointments have been booked through Jan. 20, but the county doesn’t have that many doses yet, but they’ve been told to expect enough to cover that.
They’re expecting to get about 40,000 dozes next week. And so far, they’ve done about 11,000.
