Vaccine Age Drops To 40, All Adults To Be Made Eligible By April 5th


Daytona Beach, FL - Starting on Monday (March 29th), individuals 40 years of age or older can receive a vaccine in the State of Florida. Then, that following week, anyone 18 or older can get vaccinated.

Governor Ron DeSantis made the announcement Thursday (March 25th) morning, just days after the state changed COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to include adults over the age of 50 on Monday (March 22nd).

And that's not the only change Gov. DeSantis announced. According to a press release from the governor's office, state officials plan to make all adults 18 years of age or older eligible for a vaccine beginning on April 5th.

"We have now vaccinated over 70% of the roughly 4.4 million seniors living in the state. We have also made great progress on those age 60 to 64 and those age 50 and older. And we are ready to take this step," said Gov. DeSantis

If you would like to receive a vaccine, you can register for an appointment through the state's vaccination webpage. You can also call your county's vaccine hotline to schedule an appointment. Click here to view a full list of hotline numbers.
