Long lines formed outside of the Hard Rock Stadium on Friday morning and it wasn’t for a football game but instead, for seniors waiting to get their vaccine dose.
7SkyForce HD hovered above the parking lot where a long line of vehicles could be seen waiting to get in.
Seniors 65 and older are able to call 1-888-499-0840 and make an appointment to get tested at the Hard Rock Stadium.
There are currently 1,000 appointments available per day and additional appointments are dependent on additional vaccine doses allocated by the federal government.
Seniors who were in line for the vaccine on Friday were participants in a soft opening of the site.
All vaccination sites across South Florida are by appointment only and walk-ups are not accepted.
Health officials are also advising those who have appointments to come at their designated time otherwise the slot will be lost.
On Thursday, the state reached a new one-day record in new COVID-19 cases. The Florida Department of Health reported 19,816 new infections, with a positivity rate of approximately 10% across South Florida.
Baptist Health also said they will be offering 12,000 vaccine doses by appointment only beginning Monday. Appointment slots are open as of Friday.
Miami Beach is one of the only cities in South Florida that is distributing the vaccine themselves. Officials in the city are reaching out to members in the community who fit the criteria and are offering it to those individuals.
