COVID-19 #Vaccines in #Florida:

#On #December 23, #Governor #Ron #DeSantis announced #Executive #Order 20-315, which states: #During this first phase of vaccine administration, all providers administering any COVID-19 vaccine shall only vaccinate the following populations:

  • #Long-term care facility residents and staff;
  • persons 65 years of age and older;
  • and health care personnel with direct patient contact.

#Hospitals, however, also may vaccinate persons who they deem to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19.

#Governor #DeSantis also announced that in addition to hospitals, county health departments will begin vaccinating individuals 65 and older in the coming weeks as supply permits. #Each county health department will work directly with their community partners to notify the community when vaccine doses are available and will provide information about what will be needed to register for vaccination.
