BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is again lowering the age requirement for those seeking access to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Effective Monday, March 22, Floridians age 50 and up will qualify for the vaccine. If you are as young as 50 with a medical condition that makes you “high risk,” you no longer need a signed statement from your doctor stating that you qualify.
The network of pharmacies and locations offering the vaccine continues to grow, but there is still no unified website for scheduling a vaccine. Check CVS, Publix, Walgreens, Walmart, Sam’s Club and Palm Beach County itself for availability of appointments.
We have noticed that appointments for many of these providers tend to be available early — between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. — but there are never guarantees.
Here is the executive order that takes effect on Monday.
