BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis this morning said that all Floridians, regardless of age, will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 shot starting April 5th.

That follows a short age reduction to permit those Age 40 and older to receive the shots starting on March 29th.

It’s as not immediately clear when the major providers — including Publix, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Sam’s Club and others — would update their websites to permit appointments based on the new rules.

While Johnson and Johnson’s single shot vaccine remains in short supply, Moderna and Pfizer continues to be largely available in South Florida if you happen to land on sign-up websites at the right time.

Said Desantis:

“I’m pleased to announce that beginning this Monday, March 29, all Floridians age 40 and older will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Beginning the following Monday, April 5, all Floridians age 18 and older will be eligible.”

While drug makers are testing the vaccine in children, it is not approved for pediatric use yet, regardless of where you live.
