Vaccine mandates? Not in Florida. Not if Governor Ron DeSantis has anything to say about it.
At a recent press conference, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis made it very clear that “No cop, no firefighter, no nurse, or anyone should lose their job because of COVID jabs,” and it’s time to fight back against “heavy-handed” mandates.
“We have got to stand up for people and protect their jobs and livelihoods,” DeSantis said. “It’s wrong to kick people out of work. It’s wrong to micromanage business like that.”
“[DeSantis] says the legislature will use the special session he called to propose bills that will strengthen workers’ and parents’ rights. He added he suspects “no Democrat will help any of these workers” during a special session,” a local NBC affiliate reports.
DeSantis also added that vaccines for children should be left up to the parents.
