The rollout is part of a White House plan to make the COVID-19 vaccine more widely available and help people who live in communities without easy access to hospitals or convention centers.

Publix was the first retail pharmacy to begin administering the vaccine.

The state worked with all three chains to pick which pharmacies would offer shots, with the goal to “make sure that strategically … we’re distributing the (vaccine) equitably,” Emergency Management Director Jared Moskowitz said last week.

So how did they do?

Channel 9 reporter Megan Cruz took hours to break down all 193 pharmacies where seniors can now get vaccinated in Central Florida.

While the locations do appear evenly distributed, some locations require a short drive to get there, such as Taft in Orange County, or Bushnell in Sumter County.

Some local leaders have expressed concerns about some seniors who don’t have access to any transportation. The state has been bringing vaccines to churches in addition to pharmacies. Also, counties such as Orange have mobile vaccination pods.

The earliest appointments at these pharmacies are for Friday. Publix’s online portal opens at 6 a.m. Wednesday.
