When Alexandra Leighton set out to get her Covid-19 vaccine, she found herself pleasantly surprised.

Leighton, who produces television commercials, found she could get any of the three Covid-19 vaccines – Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson – within a reasonable drive from her Miami home.

“At the beginning it was horrible – you wanted to get vaccinated, but they didn’t have enough appointments,” she said. “But I found places where you can get whatever vaccine you want. I was like wow, this is incredible.”
