MIAMI – Health experts paused appointments for the monkeypox vaccine after running into a supply shortage.
Miami-Dade County is offering a limited supply of monkeypox vaccinations for those who are eligible or at high risk starting at 8 a.m., Wednesday.
Scheduled vaccination appointments will be offered at Tropical Park and Miami Beach on 23rd Street.
There have been more than 380 reported cases of monkeypox in Miami-Dade County alone.
Due to a limited amount of vaccines available, the FDA has announced changes in order to extend the restricted number of doses.
