Gateway Mall only offering first dose of Pfizer vaccine Monday

On Tuesday, Gateway transitions to Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine and Pfizer second shots.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Monday, April 5, will be the last day the Gateway Mall vaccine site will offer the Pfizer vaccine.

If you get your first Pfizer COVID shot at Gateway, you are guaranteed your second. On Tuesday, Gateway transitions to Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine and Pfizer second shots.

All individuals under the age of 18 receiving a vaccine must be accompanied by a guardian, according to the Florida Division of Emergency Management. They must also complete a COVID-19 vaccine screening and consent form.

“Starting Tuesday, we’ll be giving the Johnson and Johnson vaccine to those 18 and up we’re getting an allotment of those 3,000 per day," said Florida Department of Emergency Management PIO of Gateway, Brandi Bates. 

The FDA has not approved the Johnson and Johnson or Moderna vaccines for use in patients under 18.

The two satellite sites, the Carver Recreational Center & Oceanway Community Center will be open at 9AM-5PM. 7 days a week. 

“We are giving the second doses of Pfizer vaccine to those who had receive the first vaccine three weeks ago and they’ll be open up April 14th," said FEMA spokesperson, Kimber Kipp.
