There are more updates to the Florida vaccination eligibility requirements.
At the beginning of March, President Biden directed all states to open up vaccine eligibility to those 18+ by May 1st. In response, Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, has expressed that Florida eligibility requirements will be “way ahead” of that timeline and most recently made people 50+ eligible for the vaccine. But, that requirement is changing yet again beginning next week.
According to Fox Orlando, DeSantis announced today that he will be expanding the COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to those 40 and older beginning March, 29th. In addition, he shared that the following week on April 5th, all Florida residents 18 and older will be eligible for the vaccine.
Currently, the Orange County Convention Center is slightly ahead of the Governor’s timeline and began vaccinating Florida residents who are 40+ this week.
Bob Chapek, the CEO of the Walt Disney Company, has shared in the past that Disney World’s Theme Park capacity will be determined by the rate of vaccinations in the public. Though, Disney has not released any information regarding any changes to park capacity recently.
