All school employees and child care workers in Florida, regardless of age, can receive the COVID-19 vaccine, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced. Speaking at a coronavirus vaccination site in Crystal River, the governor said a new mandate from the Biden Administration, which directs every state to prioritize all educators for the vaccine, will be followed in Florida.

“The federal government put that order in. So they’ve made the teachers, regardless of age, eligible. So they are eligible to get vaccinated per that order,” DeSantis said.

DeSantis said that while Florida will follow the federal government’s mandate, his administration’s main goal continues to be vaccinating as many senior citizens as possible.
