Nearly 1.2 million people across the tri-county area are now fully vaccinated.

The COVID-19 vaccination effort has surpassed another major milestone, with South Florida’s tri-county area administering its 3 millionth dose.

The region crossed that benchmark in Thursday’s Department of Health COVID-19 report. Miami-Dade has seen more than 1.3 million shots in arms alone. In Broward, that total sits just above 930,000. Palm Beach County has administered nearly 784,000 doses.

Nearly 1.2 million people are now fully vaccinated across the tri-county area.

The region did see a surge in new cases in Thursday’s report, with nearly 3,400 in total. But that was in part due to a surge in reported tests. The case positivity rate — which measures the share of positive tests — barely changed day-to-day in each county. The number even dropped slightly in Broward and Palm Beach, but rose slightly in Miami-Dade.

South Florida has now seen nearly 812,000 total COVID-19 cases. Another 20 deaths were reported as well, putting the region’s overall death toll at 11,338 since the pandemic began.
