On Wednesday morning, the City of Miami Springs announced, that it would provide residents 65 and older with the COVID-19 vaccine at All Angels Academy. However, resident seniors had to call the senior center no later than midday Wednesday due to the limited availability of the vaccine.
On Thursday, dozens of Miami Springs seniors were starting to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Some of the seniors we spoke with were thrilled about the speed of which they were able to get the vaccine. They also spoke of the kindness of all the employees distributing the vaccine at All Angels Episcopal Church.
According to the City of Miami Springs, 500 vaccines were distributed at All Angels on Ludlam Drive.
