Florida will receive 414,430 doses of the COVID-19 vaccines from the federal government this week, with the largest share going to Publix stores, according to documents released by the state.

The largest allocation in South Florida will go to distribution sites at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami-Dade County. In Broward, the drive-through site at Markham Park will receive 9,120 Pfizer doses and in Palm Beach County, the Department of Health will receive 4,500 Moderna doses to distribute.

Under threat of a lawsuit from the South Florida Sun Sentinel, the state released a breakdown of all sites that will receive Pfizer and Moderna vaccines this week.

Publix will receive 70,000 doses from the state, which does not specify how many doses each store will get. The list also does not include additional doses the federal government will distribute directly to Publix, Walmart and Winn-Dixie.

Florida will send 7,340 vaccine doses to Palm Beach County, 29,480 to Browardn County and 46,090 to Miami-Dade. Broward and Miami-Dade will also receive an unspecified portion of 13,850 doses earmarked for a multi-county pilot program.
