Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Issues Covid-19 Executive Order for Vaccination of Vulnerable


STATE OF FLORIDA OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR EXECUTIVE ORDER NUMBER 21-47 Breaking news for Floridians in need and seeking a Covid-19 Vaccination. For the first time, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis authorized the use of vaccinations to those NOT in the previous executive order (most the elderly.) Now Floridians deemed by a physician to be 'vulnerable' can now get a recommendation for the vaccines. In addition to hospital providers, physicians licensed under chapters 458 and 459, Florida Statutes, may also vaccinate persons whom they deem to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19. Advanced practice registered nurses under chapter 464, Florida Statutes, and pharmacists licensed under chapter 465, Florida Statutes, may vaccinate persons determined by a physician to be extremely vulnerable to COVID-19. Such physician determinations shall include a statement that the patient meets the defined eligibility criteria established by a form prescribed by the Florida Department of Health.
