Palm Harbor, Florida — “We started vaccination here on March 1,” said Dr. Nicolet Massy, ​​a pharmacist and owner of the Palm Harbor pharmacy.

Palm Harbor Pharmacy received the Pfizer vaccine from the state and for months was really busy with a long waiting list full of thousands of people.

“We’ve taken about 5,000 shots so far,” says Mathey.

They had been vaccinated about 100 times a day, but in the past month they have dropped to about 10 times. But Mathey says it’s starting to recover again.

“We are now seeing more young people coming to get vaccinated,” said Massy.

She says many young people have been waiting all this time to see what happens, but things are changing now that highly contagious delta variants are spreading throughout the state.

“Now there is a tendency for COVIDs to persist in the first wave of vaccination, with many older people being vaccinated and more and more people being vaccinated. In addition, if you have a COVID, your antibody against it is said to last for at least 3 months, so you may become sensitive after that, “Mathey said.

She hopes things will get busier sooner and prepares for the growing demand for vaccination as the number of COVID-19 cases soars.

Meanwhile, they are still working to get as many people in the community as possible to be vaccinated.

“Now you can use the walk-in, test someone in the parking lot for COVID, and if you don’t have COVID, you can talk to them. If they are comfortable, You can get inside and get vaccinated right away, “Massie said.
