Residents who didn’t snag a St. Johns County coronavirus vaccination appointment when additional spots opened up Thursday morning, Jan. 28, will have to wait awhile longer for their shot.

County officials said they had 3,900 doses of the vaccine, and they’ve scheduled them all.

They say they’ll start booking appointments again when they get more.

Vaccine updates can be found on the St. Johns County website or by texting SJCVACCINE to the number 888-777.?
