Please be patient as we work to update this story.

On Wednesday, the governor talked about more vaccines possibly heading this way as soon as next week with the Johnson & Johnson shot’s advancements.

More vaccines, he said, mean more people can get them and that could include teachers and law enforcement officers who are 50 and older.

When there are enough doses available, Desantis said the next group of seniors to get their shots would be people 60 and older, then 55 and up. 

He said as long as the federally supported COVID-19 vaccination sites continue to get doses, he expects the requirements to get the vaccine to open up to people in specific professions that are 50 years old and up. This includes teachers, police officers and any firefighters who have not yet received the vaccine.
