ORLANDO, Fla. - Severe weather in Central Florida impacted coronavirus vaccine distribution at Orlando's FEMA site at Valencia College on Sunday.
As a result, the federally-run COVID-19 vaccination site remained closed for the entire day. Originally, it had planned to open at 12 p.m. It is expected to resume normal operations on Monday.
"Safety of the crew on staff, the safety of the public, that's the number one priority today, so we're focused on making sure we don't open these doors until it's really safe to do so," said Denise Whitehead, FEMA site spokeswoman.
FEMA also closed its mobile vaccine sites for the day.
This comes as the country's vaccine distribution program hit a snag with this week's delivery of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Supply is expected to fall by more than 85% after the company threw away 15 million doses last month due to contamination at a Baltimore plant. However, the Orlando federal vaccine site is still expected to get 3,000 doses of Johnson & Johnson every day until the end of May.
Also, vaccination sites in North Carolina and Colorado had to shut down temporarily after several patients suffered some side effects. After getting the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, some experienced symptoms like dizziness and nausea.
However, officials say there is no reason to believe that there is anything wrong with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine itself.
