Got the Pfizer vaccine today at Fema location of Miami-Dade College North and things went smoothly.

Went mid-day and got in line at 1:30 where we were handed check in cards through car window after we showed ID's (no appointments necessary). We stayed in our cars while the line slowly moved toward the vaccination tents. After an hour we were waved into parking spaces in front of tents where we vacated our cars and walked into the tents - the first one was just to verify ID, the second tent was to register and get a sticker, in the third tent we separated then sent to wait in folding chairs (very brief wait), then the fourth tent was where we were vaccinated by military personnel (each at our own table) then sent to the fifth and last tent to be watched in case there was a reaction. All in all, it went very smoothly - sat in our cars for an hour, took 15 minutes to go through the tents and receive shot, another 15 minutes of wait time after the vaccine then we were good to go. From start to finish it took about an hour and a half. I was pleasantly surprised how well it went. So relieved. The Spring Breakers are down here in South Florida and all over the place UN-MASKED and it is so scary for those of us who are just trying to follow the rules and keep ourselves alive.

3. FM123- I'm so happy for you!

I received my Johnson & Johnson two weeks ago and the word "relieved" says it all!

I hope you're able to stay away from those who have no sense and no concern for others by not wearing masks.

Stay safe!!!
