DeSantis says he'll wait on getting COVID-19 vaccine until elderly receive it

On his way out of the press conference, DeSantis was asked about whether he had been vaccinated for the coronavirus yet, to which he replied: “What I’ve said is I’m willing to take it, but I’m not the priority.” Pointing across the room, the governor said, “They’re the priority.”

“I’m under 45,” he explained. “People under 45 are not going to be first in line for this, so when it’s my turn I will take it, but this is who I want to be vaccinated. I want my parents, our grandparents to be able to get it.”

DeSantis said during the presser, “You talk about a place like Kings Point, you have people from the Greatest Generation, people who fought in World War II, survived the Holocaust – these are people that we’ve got to stand with and prioritize.”
