Since, many states, including Florida, have made announcements on when the vaccine availability would open up to the public. And, as many states make moves to open up eligibility before the deadline, the White House may be adjusting the requirement.

According to CNBC, President Biden is set to move up the initial May 1st deadline and direct that states make all American adults eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine by April 19th later today.
