WASHINGTON, D.C. (BocaNewsNow.com) — It was a short answer but a significant answer.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked Monday afternoon about Florida Governor Ron DeSantis saying FEMA isn’t needed in Florida to help distribute COVID shots.

Psaki started her response with a comment sure to generate a reaction from DeSantis: “In the spirit of facts first…” she said.

Psaki then went on to point out that the Florida Department of Health has apparently only distributed half of the COVID vaccine it has in its possession.

The blunt, fast response differed from the pro-DeSantis responses that often came from the Trump Administration — no matter the topic.

Frustrated senior citizens in Palm Beach County, and statewide, continue to seek ways to secure COVID-19 shot appointments. Tens of thousands are waiting for Publix to reopen its reservation system on Wednesday at 6 a.m.

As we reported Sunday, only 117,742 shots have been given in Palm Beach County which has a population of 1.5 million. Statewide, 1,534,816 shots have been given in a state with a population of 21.5 Million.
