About this Episode

Florida Surgeon General Scott Rivkees is launching an investigation into reports that more than 1,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses were damaged last week in Palm Beach County. Gov. Ron DeSantis wants to know how it happened.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— DeSantis said that in Pahokee while announcing a new pod to provide vaccinations for people who live far from Palm Beach County's urban centers. But the credit goes to former FSU and NFL player Anquan Bolden … who comes from the Glades.

— And since he had an NFL all-star by his side, the Governor couldn’t resist talking about this weekend’s Super Bowl in Tampa.

— Students and faculty at the University of Florida speak out against the effort to force everyone to return to campus for in-person classes. They say UF leaders are downplaying the threat of COVID-19 and putting lives at risk because they’re afraid of budget cuts from Tallahassee.

— A Senate committee approves a bill that would give the corrections department the authority to release older inmates who face serious medical problems.

— Two Democrats discuss filing bills to kill M-CORES, the multibillion-dollar project to build three new toll roads through some of the last undeveloped areas of the state.

— And finally, a Florida Man (and state lawmaker) says he got his mask in his mouth, so there’s no room for his foot.
