Snowbirds who headed to Florida this winter -- despite Canada's advisory not to travel abroad during the pandemic — have discovered an unexpected perk: They can sign up to get the COVID-19 vaccine potentially months before it's available to seniors in Canada.

Canadian snowbird Perry Cohen, 74, of Toronto said that he and his wife, Rose, 71, each got the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in Florida on Tuesday.

The couple are spending the winter at a condo they own in Deerfield Beach, Fla. On New Year's Day, they were invited to sign up for a vaccination clinic set up in their gated community.

Some Canadian snowbirds in Florida are already getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccinations being offered to seniors aged 65 and up, including Canadians.

There's no lockdown in Florida! 

DeSantis says no new lockdowns, mask mandates or any other anti-COVID-19 measure in Florida

KISSIMMEE — Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday ruled out imposing any further coronavirus restrictions or a mask mandate, despite rising case numbers across the state and nation. DeSantis said there would be “no lockdowns, no fines, no school closures. No one’s losing their job because of a government dictate. Nobody’s losing their livelihood or their business.”

DeSantis’ executive order, which barred local emergency ordinances that could “prevent an individual from working or from operating a business,” also prevents local governments from requiring restaurants to operate below 50 percent indoor capacity and requires local governments to quantify the economic impact and the public-health need for limits on indoor capacity below 100 percent. When the order was first issued in September, the daily average of positive coronavirus cases over the prior 10 days was 2,704, with an average of 113 deaths being reported a day, according to Department of Health records. Since mid-December, the state has averaged 109 deaths and 12,887 positive cases each day.
