- Now to the coronavirus pandemic. The state of Florida is eliminating the proof of residency requirement for vaccines at state and federal sites. That paves the way now for college students and migrant workers to get vaccinated.

Officials also announced the vaccination site at North Campus of Miami Dade College will stop offering the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine after May 4th, that's Tuesday. Johnson & Johnson vaccines and second shots of Pfizer will continue through the end of May.

Officials are stressing that those who haven't been vaccinated yet should consider doing so and as soon as possible.

MIKE JACHLES: Certainly we want people to think-- rethink if they've been hesitant or reluctant to get the vaccine. Now is the time to talk, get factual information, talk to your doctor or health care provider, find out what vaccine is best for you and get the vaccine. The sooner we can get more people vaccinated, the sooner we can put this all behind us.

- Friday was also the last day that Jackson Health System was administering first doses of the coronavirus vaccine. It will continue with second dose appointments at its three vaccine locations until May 21st.
