The state of Florida now requires proof of residency for people getting COVID-19 vaccines. The State Surgeon General Dr. Scott Rivkees signed a Public Health Advisory on Thursday (1/21/21).

The new policy applies to state-run vaccination sites. Residents will be required to show their Florida ID or a utility bill in order to get the shot.

“The COVID-19 vaccine remains scarce within the United States and vaccine availability in Florida is extremely limited,” the advisory stated.
