Vaccination Age to Drop to 40 Next Week

By The News Service of Florida

Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday announced that all Floridians ages 40 and older will be able to receive COVID-19 vaccinations starting Monday and that all adults will be eligible on April 5. The announcement came after eligibility expanded to people ages 50 and older this week.

“We have made great progress and I look forward to continuing to work hard to make sure everyone in Florida who wants a shot, can get a shot,” DeSantis said Thursday in announcing the decision. “No mandate, but access for all.”

DeSantis focused initially on vaccinating seniors and health-care workers but has gradually expanded eligibility. The April 5 expansion will apply to all people ages 18 and older.

Through Tuesday, slightly more than 5.2 million people had been at least partially vaccinated. Vaccines produced by Pfizer and Moderna require two doses, while a Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires only one dose. More than 2.85 million people in Florida had completed two-dose series or had received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as of Tuesday, according to the state Department of Health. About 2.35 million had received first doses of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.

  1. I have no problem with anyone choosing to get the vaccine or not to… It’s a personal decision. As for me and mine, we choose to do our own research… and thus… choose not to inject our bodies with sugar water and fertilizer runoff at $2K a -pop. Beware the Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex.

    “My Body; My Choice”… it’s not just for killing innocent babies.

  2. At this rate the survival rate, should you contract Covid, may one day sky rocket way up from the historical 97.7% all the way to…dare we dream…yes lets…to an incredable 97.8%.
    Rejoice one and all

  3. I go in for my Second Shot of Phizer Tomorrow Morning. The only Side Effect I had was after about 5 Hours of having the Shot, my Arm hurt like crazy for a couple of days and the day after the shot I felt tired and sleepy but with out sleeping. Can’t wait to get this over with.
