TEAM DeSANTIS DEFIANT: ‘Florida Won’t Be the Biden Administration’s Biomedical Police’

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.14.22

Yeah, Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) heard the Supreme Court’s decision on vax mandates —he just doesn’t care. Despite the SCOTUS upholding mandates for healthcare workers, Team DeSantis won’t be enforcing them anytime soon.

“The state of Florida is not going to serve as the Biden Administration’s biomedical police,” Christina Pushaw, press secretary for Gov. Ron DeSantis, said in an email to the USA TODAY Network-Florida. “Firing unvaccinated healthcare workers, many of whom have infection-conferred immunity, is unethical and unscientific on its face.” 

She said it also harms patients “because hospitals in California and other states are now requiring vaccinated, COVID-infected healthcare workers to treat patients due to staffing shortages — which were exacerbated by vaccine mandates. How does that keep anyone safe?”

DeSantis reiterated his stance hours before the SCOTUS decision came down:

“In Florida, what we said was, nobody should be denied earning a living based on these jabs,” DeSantis says. “That’s your choice. It’s a private choice. It is not something the government should be forcing.
