SHOW TRANSCRIPT

An update to a story we brought you last week about vaccine access in Florida.

Gov. Ron DeSantis said the "state was not involved" in getting more than 1,200 residents in a wealthy community faster access to the vaccine. 

Now, the hospital and county where that happened say the state did OK the distribution. And new reporting appears to support that.

Text messages obtained by the Bradenton Herald appear to show the governor's office helped coordinate pop-up vaccine sites in the county. 

DeSantis said the report was "nonsense."
