SEMINOLE COUNTY, FL (April 24, 2021) – Seminole County Office of Emergency Management and Florida Department of Health in Seminole are excited to once again be allowed to use the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, as a tool to fight the spread of COVID-19.
With the CDC and FDA lifting their pause of Johnson & Johnson, Seminole County will resume usage of the vaccine for homebound vaccinations, as long as the individual consents to that vaccine. If the individual would prefer another option, Pfizer or Moderna will be offered in its stead.
If your station or publication would like comment regarding the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, Seminole County Emergency Manager Alan Harris is only available for interviews, before 1:00p.m. today, either in person at the Oviedo Mall vaccine site, or via Zoom. Please schedule now.
In addition, please see the attached photos of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, as it has been in our freezer during this pause. Seminole County currently has 540 doses on Johnson & Johnson on hand.
Seminole County Office of Emergency Management and Florida Department of Health-Seminole personnel are available Monday-Friday from 8:00a.m.-5:00p.m. by phone to answer non-emergency questions related to COVID-19 at 407-665-0000. Spanish-speaking operators are on standby to assist.
