Florida Is The Only State That Hasn’t Pre-Ordered Vaccines For Kids Below 5

Taking yet another strong stance on vaccines, on Thursday, Florida was the only state to not have pre-ordered the new toddler vaccines, while Gov. Ron DeSantis did say they’ll be available to those who want them.

Denying facilitating distribution of the federally approved vaccines for those below five, DeSantis said, “Doctors can get it. Hospitals can get it. But there’s not going to be any state programs that are going to be trying to get COVID jabs to infants and toddlers and newborns. That’s not where we’re gonna be utilizing our resources.”

Florida’s Health Department does not recommend COVID vaccines for healthy children under 17, but says children with underlying health conditions should be considered candidates for them. 

On the other hand, White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre, who confirmed Florida’s outlier status on Thursday, said not preordering the vaccines could mean delaying their availability in children’s hospitals and other facilities that have relied on state distribution of the shots. “We encouraged Florida on several occasions to order vaccines,” Jean-Pierre said. By not doing so, the state “will not have immediate, ready access to some,” she said.
