Florida’s new vaccine policy can be summed up in five words — use it or lose it.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— Gov. Ron DeSantis made that announcement during a visit to Orlando Health, where he said vaccination sites will be working seven days a week during the New Year to inoculate as many people as possible in the shortest amount of time.
— More than 260,000 Floridians have already received their first shot and seniors still have priority, but some hospitals have stopped taking appointments for vaccinations because the supply isn’t keeping up with demand.
— Meanwhile, vaccines haven’t put a dent in the daily casualty reports … they’re getting worse. The Department of Health reported 105 added fatalities Monday and more than 11,000 new cases of COVID-19.
— Sunrise in-depth discusses a federal court challenge to one of the Governor’s favorite new laws … a bill punishing local governments that don’t cooperate with federal immigration authorities. The law being challenged is Senate Bill 168 … commonly known as the “Sanctuary Cities Law.”
— And finally, the story of a Florida Man nicknamed the “Masturbating Bandit.”
