Jan. 22—With demand sky-high for COVID-19 vaccines, Miami-Dade commissioners on Friday were handed a coveted batch of appointments to fill as they see fit.
The head of Jackson Health, the county hospital that commissioners help oversee, announced the distribution plan, saying each commissioner's chief of staff would receive a form with 100 vaccine slots to fill. Jackson CEO Carlos Migoya said appointments must go to people 65 or over who can prove they live in Florida.
'You'll have a spreadsheet in which you'll be able to provide us the names and numbers of the people' who get the appointments, Migoya said during a meeting with commissioners. He described the plan as a way to reach residents who haven't been able to get appointments through the largely online process that's already underway.

'It may not be enough,' Migoya said of 1,300 appointments reserved for the 13-seat commission, which has control over some county funding for the hospital. 'Or it may be too much. We're going to try it. If this works, we'll do it again. Obviously subject to getting more vaccine.'
The announcement brought pushback from some commissioners.
'This worries me,' Commissioner Eileen Higgins said. Higgins, who represents Little Havana and parts of Miami Beach, said she questioned why commissioners should be put in charge of deciding who gets access to limited supplies of vaccines. 'It worries me now there's another 13 phone numbers and addresses people have in order to access vaccines. People are confused enough.'
Others said the plan made sense, given the apparent racial and income gaps when it comes to neighborhoods that are lagging in vaccination rates. Commissioner Jean Monestime, whose district includes North Miami, said his office is a frequent source of calls from people who are falling through the cracks of government services.
'To many people in the community, we are the ones they access,' he said. Ipl betting app 2020. 'It's our offices they know.'
At the start of the online video meeting, Mayor Daniella Levine Cava previewed Migoya's announcement about the vaccine appointment slots, which included an unknown number available to the mayor's office.
'I'm happy to share we'll be partnering to make additional appointments available .. in partnership with your offices and Jackson, which Carlos Migoya will tell you about in a little more detail shortly,' she said. 'We will go deeper into under-served communities and provide vaccines to those who are harder to reach.'
Rachel Johnson, Levine Cava's spokeswoman, did not say how many vaccine appointments Jackson provided the mayor's office. She said the office 'would be working directly with community organizations' to fill appointments provided by Jackson.
Johnson said the mayor wasn't aware of Migoya's vaccine-appointment offer until just ahead of the meeting. Levine Cava 'got a call 20 minutes before the meeting' about the Jackson appointments, Johnson said. She also pointed to remarks Levine Cava made in the meeting linking the Jackson effort to outreach to 'communities at great risk.'
After some public criticism unfolded during the meeting — Bal Harbour Mayor Gabriel Groisman called it a 'bad idea' on Twitter, saying there are 'plenty of non-profits' that could fill the appointments — the commission's chairman said he would decline the appointments.
'I appreciate you doing this,' said Chairman Jose 'Pepe' Diaz, whose district includes the Doral area. 'Other people, unfortunately, will look at this and [say] we're trying to make it political. .. You can hold off on my 100 and use them as needed for the people coming in. That's just me.'
Higgins' office also said she would be declining the vaccination slots, and Commissioner Javier Souto said he also didn't want them. Commissioner Danielle Cohen Higgins also put out a statement saying her office would decline the appointments. Commissioner Raquel Regalado released a statement saying 'returning this allotment is difficult' but that she would decline the 'well-intentioned' offer.
Lidia Amoretti, spokesperson for Jackson, said the idea behind the offer was to tap into commission contacts with pockets of the community needing help. 'We understand elected officials often have specialized knowledge of the unique, hard-to-reach populations in their districts, so we wanted to give them that opportunity to help those people,' she said.
Commissioner Rebeca Sosa called it a no-win situation. 'If we say no, our constituents will get mad. If we say yes, everybody is going to get mad and say, 'You're trying to take advantage of this situation to benefit your friends,' ' Sosa said, also declining the appointment slots. 'The more we do, the more criticized we are.'

CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort) is a nonprofit organization co-founded by Sean Penn and Ann Lee that is dedicated to saving lives and strengthening communities affected by or vulnerable to crisis. Within hours of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Penn mobilized a powerful network to take immediate action. More than 10 years later, CORE continues to lead sustainable programs focused on four pillars: emergency relief, disaster preparedness, environmental resiliency and community building. The organization has expanded beyond Haiti to support communities in The Bahamas, Puerto Rico and the United States. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, CORE has been operating free testing sites across the country alongside local partners, providing essential resources and contact tracing services as well as part of its integrated “CORE 8” approach to combat the pandemic. In 2021, CORE is working with its partners nationwide to ensure safe and equitable distribution of vaccines as they become available to the communities the organization serves.
