While many Americans wait in the long, long line that is forming for the coronavirus vaccines, Canadian citizens who are 65 or older and who have the cash to spend months in states such as Florida or Arizona will be moving to the head of the line.

Florida is offering the vaccine to anyone who can prove he or she is 65 or older.
“I guess we were in the right place at the right time,” said Toronto resident Perry Cohen, who will spend the winter in Deerfield Beach, Florida, in a gated community.
The 74-year-old said he and his wife, Rose, 71, received the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Tuesday and will get their second dose in three weeks.
