The state of Florida officially loosened the age requirements to receive the COVID-19 vaccine on Monday. All full or part-time residents age 60 or older are now eligible to receive the vaccine.

The new requirements place those 60 and up in the same boat as the state's first-responders, healthcare workers, educators, childcare workers and immunocompromized adults. We've compiled a list of Central Florida locations where newly eligible residents of Central Florida can schedule appointments to receive the vaccine.
