“ I think as you get into some of the younger demographics where the risk is a lot lower i think less than 50-percent will opt for it. We got a little preview of that when we brought it to the hospitals we did the front-line healthcare professionals and a lot of the nurses chose not to do it. that was their choice. I think you’ll see something similar. I think you’ll see a majority of people 55 and up will ultimately want it but I think below 45 or 40 I think it’ll be less than a majority will ultimately want it,” said Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
