BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Florida Department of Health reports that of the 49,932 people who have received a COVID-19 vaccine as of December 22nd, 2020, an overwhelming majority are white. By the numbers: 29,499 are white. Just 3,802 identify as “black.” 9,271 are listed as “other” with 7,213. 143 are listed as “American Indian/Alaskan.”

The most vaccinated age group continues to be those 35-44, somewhat debunking Governor DeSantis’ claim that the elderly are a priority. This is data provided by the State of Florida:

16-24 years of age: 1,254

25-34 years of age: 10,338

35-44 years of age: 11,357

45-54 years of age: 10,982

55-64 years of age: 10,089

65-74 years of age: 3,740

75-84 years of age: 1,204

85 years of age and older: 968

By gender:

Female: 28,691

Male: 21,067

Unknown: 174

As is expected just days into vaccinations, the Florida Department of Health reports that no one in Florida has received the second of two doses. They are expected to be spaced out be at least two weeks.

  1. Oh my gosh!
    It appears as if the figures come out almost entirely even with the demographic percentage of population for white and black, hence, no white privilege. The only real disproportionate number seems to be in gender not race… media created bias.
