DeLAND, Fla. – Gov. Ron DeSantis suggested Tuesday that sworn in law enforcement will be among the next group eligible for the coronavirus vaccine but surveys given in several local sheriff’s offices suggest nearly half of deputies don’t want the vaccine yet. “I was pretty surprised.
I kind of thought we probably would have been around 75%,” Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said. The sheriff’s office said there was a first round of vaccinations offered to first responders in Volusia county a few weeks ago.
About 130 deputies got it and another 50 have expressed interest in the next round. That’s 180 deputies out of the 420 deputies sworn in. [TRENDING: HOA charges family $927 for trash on curb | Doctor faces hate crime charge in socialRead more on clickorlando.com
