2. They will have to go to pharmacies (and must). No insurance needed as Federal program

contracts directly with them. DeSantis can't stop this. But the state's local public health clinics will be left unable to help... And, pharmacists (sorry, guys, it is true) are not the best to vaccinate infants and young children as young as six months--nor, I'd guess, do they want to.

At the mass COVID clinics I've participated in, all the kids five years and older were vaccinated by the few pediatricians, pediatric nurses, a handful of ER docs accustomed to treating kids, and veterinarians-- all specifically recruited given their experience dealing with children (or non-compliant patients). Other nurses, pharmacists, and others participating in adult mass clinics, frankly refused. And from what I could see, all the better. Not only did they team up to plan for dealing with scared kids, but they recruited a group to bring stuffed animals for them to pick out to take home and two of the veterinarians arranged to have litters of puppies there for the youngest to watch and play with afterward. Three of those mass clinics vaccinated more than 2000 young kids and could not have gone smoother.

So, good luck to pharmacists dealing with six-month-old infants and toddlers. It will be a challenge for them.
