Gov. Ron DeSantis announced today that beginning Monday, March 29th, Sunshine State residents aged 40 and over will be eligible to get the Covid vaccine and one week later, on April 5, every adult, age 18 & older, will be eligible.

Florida would open COVID vaccine eligibility a week later to all people age 18 and over on April 5th.

DeSantis said Florida has already vaccinated 70 percent of the state’s 4.4 million seniors.

"While the Biden administration set a May 1st target date for vaccine eligibility for all adults, Florida is pleased to announce that all adults in the state age 18 and older will be eligible for the vaccine beginning Monday, April 5th," DeSantis said in a news release.

More than 5.2 million of Florida’s over 21 million residents had received at least one coronavirus shot as of early Wednesday. About 13.7 percent of the state's population has been fully vaccinated.

Vaccines are also available at 150 CVS locations, 125 Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club locations, more than 70 Winn Dixie locations, soon-to-be over 600 Walgreens pharmacies, and every single one of the 730 Publix pharmacies across the state.
