DeSantis Makes Claim On Twitter That Is Completely And Totally Disproven By The State’s Own Data


BOCA RATON, FL ( — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Tuesday night tweeted that “Florida is prioritizing our elderly population for vaccination against COVID-19. We are seeing progress made regarding residents of long term care facilities and will not be putting young and healthy “essential” employees ahead of our general 65+ population when it comes to vaccine distribution.”

But as reported a few hours ago, Florida has vaccinated 42,766 people under the age of 65, but just 5912 people aged 65 and older. We didn’t go to Harvard and Yale with DeSantis, but pretty much anyone — even Florida residents — can figure out that 42,766 is a larger number than 5,912.

It’s not clear where Governor Ron DeSantis is receiving his data. Our data comes from the Florida Department of Health — and completely contradicts his claims and assertions.
