The guidelines are being updated again for eligibility. Here’s the latest.

Governor Ron DeSantis made the announcement for the state of Florida, which you can listen to below. Beginning Monday, March 29, the minimum age to be eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine will be 40.

That will lead up to the next change, which will be Monday, April 5, when all individuals age 18 and older will be eligible to receive the vaccine.

Eligible Floridians are still encouraged by the state to preregister at myvaccine.fl.gov. Those who register will be contacted when vaccine is available in their area. The preregistration phone number for each county is also an option.

The governor pointed out the vaccine is available at 1500 CVS stores, 125 Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club stores, over 70 Winn Dixie stores, 730 Publix pharmacies, and soon, over 600 Walgreens pharmacies.
