Miami Seniors Show Concern over Vaccination ProcessThe COVID-19 vaccine has made way for new deadlines and regulations in South Florida, with some setbacks affecting the process along the way. An article released by Local 10 News titled "Miami-Dade, Broward Seniors Face Maze of COVID-19 Vaccine Confusion" expands on some of the struggles that the senior populations have endured making sense of the vaccination process.

In light of the anticipation generated by the vaccine, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a plan to make doses readily accessible for senior citizens, namely ages 65 and over, and hospital systems around the state started providing rounds of vaccinations for those who are eligible. Now, seniors are having trouble securing their appointments and worry about a general lack of information on the vaccine's availability.

Such is the case for local radio host Andy Slater, who got a rejection letter after having initially secured a slot for his mother, Irma. According to a tweet from the county's health department, rejection notices would be followed by a confirmation email validating the appointment.

Meanwhile, the Florida Health Department's website has been shut down despite people's repeated inquiries. Many hospital systems have already run out of doses, which has prompted a round of poor management complaints during the vaccination process.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava reaffirms the government's commitment to getting the population vaccinated quickly and efficiently while providing a central website to address people's need for information.
