PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis made senior citizens his top priority as the first COVID-19 vaccinations began being administered.

Frontline healthcare workers are also being prioritized by DeSantis.

Despite this, tens of thousands of seniors are still waiting for their shots, along with millions of younger Floridians.

It will be months before many of them are able to receive the vaccine.
