DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com is receiving multiple reports that the Kings Point COVID vaccine photo-op involving Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Wednesday may have involved shot recipients under the age of 65. While there is no indication that Governor DeSantis — or his people — would have had any knowledge of shots being given to those under the age of his executive order, the reports are consistent: people in Kings Point may have received invites for the shots who did not qualify based on age.

The 300 residents receiving the first round of COVID-19 shots at Kings Point were all supposed to be at least 65 years old — in sync with Governor DeSantis’ executive order calling for citizens 65 or older to take priority.

The Florida Department of Health for Palm Beach County continues to be an unmitigated disaster as residents 65 and older remain unable to book appointments for the COVID vaccine as the system is overwhelmed or nonfunctioning. Area hospitals are telling anxious seniors that they have no vaccine for public use and are not involved with the reservation process at this point.
DeSantis announced at the Kings Point event that seniors could call area hospitals to book appointments — information that is incorrect.
