Edison Mall COVID-19 vaccine site to close next month
LEE COUNTY, Fla. — While we should stay vigilant and protect ourselves, local medical experts said that they’re cautiously optimistic about the future as vaccine sites start to close.
It’s hard to imagine that just a few months ago, there were more people trying to get the vaccine than there were doses available.
Now, after administering more than 200,000 vaccines, the Lee County Department of Health will be closing the doors of the vaccine site at Edison Mall.
The Edison Mall vaccination site will officially close on June 18. After that, people will be able to get a vaccine at Lee County clinics starting June 21.
The decision to close came as DOH officials noticed fewer and fewer people coming to the site for their shot. It’s not the only vaccine site in Lee County to shut its doors due to low demand.
The Florida Department of Emergency Management said that the CenturyLink Sports Complex COVID-19 testing site will officially close at the end of the day on Sunday, May 23.
As more people get vaccinated and the demand for testing decreases, local medical experts said that more closures can be expected as time goes on.
