Additional Publix vaccination sites to open in South Florida, DeSantis announces Tuesday

This comes after last week's announcement that COVID-19 vaccines will soon be available at certain Publix locations.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis held a news conference at a Publix in Jupiter on Tuesday where he reaffirmed the state's commitment to vaccinating those over 65 years of age.

He also announced that the state’s partnership with Publix Super Markets will now expand to all 67 Publix pharmacies in Palm Beach County with additional locations in Monroe and Martin counties.

DeSantis said any Florida resident can receive the vaccine at any of the locations.

This comes after last week's announcement that COVID-19 vaccines are now available at certain Publix locations in St. Johns and Flagler counties.

There are 14 Publix locations in St. Johns County and four locations in Flagler County that will be administering the vaccines.
