On Friday’s program we took a closer look at how COVID-19 vaccines are being administered in Florida with reporters from around the state, including:
- WLRN Health Care Reporter Veronica Zaragovia
- WUSF Health Reporter Stephanie Colombini
- WJXT Investigative Reporter Kelly Wiley
- The 19th News Economy Reporter Chabeli Carrazana
We also discussed the scrutiny over a pop-up vaccination site in Lakewood Ranch, and the role politics might have played in setting it up with Bradenton Herald Law Enforcement Reporter Jessica De Leon.
We examined Gov. Ron DeSantis’ rising stature among Republicans, including those outside Florida. Henry Olsen, a senior fellow at the Ethics & Public Policy Center and a Washington Post columnist who recently wrote a column for the paper on DeSantis’ growing clout, joined us with more.
