Vaccine eligibility age lowers to 18+ in Florida Monday

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The coronavirus vaccine eligibility age will change once again on Monday, April, 5 Governor Ron DeSantis said.

On Monday, anyone age 18 and over will be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine after the age was lowered to 40 and over just one week before.

The Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine currently authorized for individuals under the age of 18. The state is continuing to follow all FDA issued Emergency Use Authorizations guidance when administering the COVID-19 vaccine. In accordance with this guidance, individuals 16 and older will be eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. These individuals will also be eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine on April 5.

The state will continue to release additional details on how individuals 16 and older can receive the Pfizer vaccine, as they become available.

All eligible groups can start scheduling appointments as soon as Sunday, April 4 for appointments in the following weeks.

It’s also recommended that people eligible to get the vaccine pre-register at www.myvaccine.fl.gov. Once pre-registered, a representative will call you and set up a vaccine appointment in your area.

“We’ve been able to expand eligibility to those age 50 and above and we’ve seen additional success,” DeSantis said. “Now because of this success, I am pleased to announce additional vaccine eligibility expansions.”

Vaccines are also available at 150 CVS locations, 125 Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club locations, more than 70 Winn Dixie locations, soon-to-be over 600 Walgreens pharmacies, and every single one of the 730 Publix pharmacies across the state.
