Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently authorized that state-allocated COVID-19 vaccinations be provided to persons ages 65 and older in addition to front-line health care workers. Over the holiday break, UF Health sent a message to UF faculty and staff in Alachua County who are 65 or older a message inviting them to make an appointment to receive the vaccination.
To date, UF Health has administered more than 15,000 doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines at UF Health campuses in Gainesville, Jacksonville and Central Florida.
