Beginning Monday, March 29, all individuals age 40 and older will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Beginning the following Monday, April 5, all individuals age 18 and older will be eligible to receive the vaccine.

“Florida’s Seniors First vaccine strategy is paying off — more than 3.2 million seniors age 65 and older have received shots.  We’ve been able to expand eligibility to those age 50 and above and we’ve seen additional success,” said DeSantis, “Now because of this success, I am pleased to announce additional vaccine eligibility expansions.  While the Biden administration set a May 1st target date for vaccine eligibility for all adults, Florida is pleased to announce that all adults in the state age 18 and older will be eligible for the vaccine beginning Monday, April 5th.”

“This coming Monday, March 29th, the age of eligibility for the vaccine will be reduced from 50 to 40,” DeSantis continued.
