Firefighters with the Orange County Fire Authority will be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus start Saturday morning, Dec. 26, after the agency received a shipment of the Moderna vaccine.
The vaccination of the authority’s first 100 firefighters will be taking place at the OCFA Regional Fire Operations and Training Center (RFOTC).
The fire department is working with Orange County Health Care Agency to prioritize first responders to be among the first to be vaccinated.
Much like the vaccine made by Pfizer, the Moderna vaccine will also be provided through two injections, given 28 days apart. This vaccine does not need to stored at extremely low temperatures.
