‘Whoop Dee Doo’: Gov. DeSantis says he’s ‘not the priority’ when asked if he’s gotten the COVID-19 vaccine
By Sara Carter, December 30, 2020
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Wednesday brushed off a question from a reporter about if he has taken one of the COVID-19 vaccines, saying that despite having access to it as an elected official, he’s “not the priority.”
“I’m willing to take it, but I am not the priority,” DeSantis explained, then explaining that people in his age range will not be at the front of the line for vaccinations.

“I’m under 45, […] the people under 45 are not going to be first in line for this,” he added.
“When it is my turn, I will take it,” DeSantis continued, emphasizing that he wanted those at higher risk, such as the elderly, to be vaccinated first.
“Granted I’m an elected official, but whoop dee doo. At the end of the day, let’s focus on where the risk is,” he concluded.
The Florida governor’s comments come as other elected officials across the country refuse to get vaccinated before those who are at higher risk, with some, like Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), calling out their younger colleagues who have already gotten the vaccine, such as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), as part of the continuity of government plan.
Some of the higher-ranking officials who have gotten their first doses of the coronavirus vaccine include Vice President Mike Pence, President-elect Joe Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, as well as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Pence, it should be noted, is currently the most high-profile member of the Trump administration to receive a dose of the vaccine.
