It's not a guarantee, but worked for a friend of mine. Apparently once a vial of vaccine is opened it has to be used or discarded. With that said apparently if you are at a vaccine site at the end of the day you can get leftovers. Again, not a guarantee, but worth a shot. It will secure your spot for the second dose as well.

Does this mean local pharmacies like Publix can vaccinate this group?
