USF Health officials announced Sunday that they will temporarily stop offering COVID-19 vaccines due to a shortage of shots.

USF Health has temporarily stopped offering COVID-19 vaccines because it has not received any additional doses from its hospital partners or the state.

USF Health has temporarily stopped offering COVID-19 vaccines.

Officials announced the suspension in a series of tweets Sunday afternoon, saying that it's happening because they have have not received any additional doses from its hospital partners or the state.

While the decision is effective immediately, patients, as well as faculty and staff who have received their first dose and are already scheduled for their second, will keep those appointments.

USF Health will not take new appointments at this time, but hopes to be able to resume offering shots as soon as its supply allows it.
