About this Episode

The pace of vaccination is slowing, not just in Florida, but nationwide. The problem is vaccine hesitancy and partisan politics definitely plays a part.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Blue states have the highest percentage of vaccinations; red states are at the bottom of the list. Some experts are worried there are so many Americans who won't get vaccinated that we'll never reach herd immunity. And Gov. Ron DeSantis is expecting another summer surge of COVID-19.

— The Governor signs a bill that says cities and counties that try to do anything about guns can be sued by the public and face additional penalties. A legal challenge to the state preemption law is already making its way through the courts.

— DeSantis gets a chopper ride to check out the algae in Lake Okeechobee and he's worried the Army Corps of Engineers may start releasing that water into nearby estuaries.

— And finally, a young Florida Man didn't want to stop fighting when the law showed up, so he turned on the deputy — and got a taste of the taser.
