ANDY SHEEHAN: Demand for the COVID-19 vaccine has slowed down. Hey, I'm Andy Sheehan here at the AHN, Allegheny Health Network, mass vaccine clinic at the Mills. Now, this is supposed to be for appointments only. 7,000 slots open, but they couldn't fill them. So now they've open this up to all walk-ins can come in without an appointment and get it. And still, they will not be able to use up all the vaccines today. They will be using them tomorrow at another, second-dose clinic.

But the point is that the demand for vaccines has slowed down. There's a thought now that most people who want the vaccine have already gotten them. So what does that mean for the future here? It may mean an end to mass clinics like this. Tonight at 5:00 and 6:00, we'll talk about that. We seem to be at what's called an inflection point, a pause in the vaccine demand. And a look to the future. That's tonight at 5:00 and 6:00.
