Florida lifted all health restrictions linked to the Covid-19 pandemic on Monday. Governor Ron DeSantis promulgated a law putting an end to the state of health emergency and all measures taken in this context.

The law was originally supposed to take effect on July 1, but the governor subsequently issued a decree advancing its entry into force on May 3. He justified his decision by the effectiveness and availability of vaccines in the US state. “This is what must be done in view of the data” available, he said at a press conference.

Vaccination open to all

Florida has a population of 21.5 million. Nearly 9 million of them, or 41.9% of the population, have already received at least one dose of an anti-coronavirus vaccine, according to health authorities. “People who are not yet vaccinated today are certainly not because of a lack of stocks or availability” of sera, said Ron DeSantis.

The vaccination was opened this Friday in Florida to all people 16 years of age and over. Proof of domiciliation is no longer necessary, as was the case since January to fight against “vaccine tourism”. In the United States, the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are sometimes available even without an appointment in many centers, pharmacies and supermarkets.
