Improvements coming

In a call with mayors across the county held Jan. 14, Broward County Mayor Steve Geller said “I believe there will be a very substantial expansion in the coming weeks,” in reference to vaccinations sites.

Hollywood is likely to get a site to make it easier for residents who now have to travel long distances to other sites.

Geller said the county is negotiating with the state health department about using leftover CARES Act funds to increase vaccination capacity.

The mayor had previously said he believed Broward could vaccinate all its seniors who wish to receive the shot within 6-8 weeks, and he believes the county remains on that timeline as long as sufficient doses from the state continue to arrive.

This summer is when the rest of the general population should expect to be able to be vaccinated, Geller said.
