TALLAHASSEE – Following Gov. Ron DeSantis’s executive order that allows those who are extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 to be vaccinated even if they are under the age of 65, the Florida Department of Health has published a form for physicians to certify that they have determined an individual eligible to receive the vaccine.
This vaccination policy change went into effect on March 3.
The form is available online at http://ww11.doh.state.fl.us/comm/_partners/covid19_report_archive/covid-physician-form/EO-21-47-Form.pdf
According to the Centers for Disease Control, those who are at increased risk of severe illness from the virus include those with Type 2 diabetes, cancer, COPD, Type 1 diabetes, moderate to severe asthma and high blood pressure.
