Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava statement on expanded vaccine eligibility in Florida

MIAMI ( March 25, 2021 )

Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava issued this statement following Governor DeSantis's announcement about expanded vaccine eligibility in Florida:

"I commend the Governor for following the lead of communities like Miami-Dade that moved forward with a robust timeline to expand vaccination eligibility, given the increased supply provided by the federal sites. Miami-Dade has now vaccinated 70% percent of seniors 65+ with over 650,000 of our residents having received at least a first dose. We are now ramping up a more aggressive community-wide public engagement campaign in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole to ensure that with expanded eligibility to all adults on April 5, every resident knows they can get a shot. And starting this Monday, all residents 40+ can get a vaccine at any vaccination site in Miami-Dade.

"This is our clearest path to return to normal and put this pandemic behind us, and I will be working with our community to ensure all our residents get vaccinated. Get your shot, Miami-Dade."
