DeSantis Puts Schools on Notice Over CDC’s New Recommendation

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis drew a line in the sand Thursday, telling reporters he is against mandatory COVID-19 vaccine shots for children.

On Wednesday, a panel at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) voted to add the vaccine to the recommended Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program. It would not make the shots mandatory.

“As long as I’m kicking and screaming, there will be no COVID shot mandates for your kids,” DeSantis said during a speech to announce an executive order to provide property tax relief for residents impacted by Hurricane Ian. “That is your decision to make as a parent.”

The governor said his office has received questions about the CDC adding the vaccine and schools potentially mandating students be vaccinated against COVID-19.

“I get a kick out of it when people kind of compare it to (measles, mumps and rubella shots) and things that have been around for decades and decades,” he said. “Parents, by and large, most parents in Florida have opted against doing these booster shots, particularly for young kids.”

“These are new shots,” he said, adding that Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo has not recommended the booster shots for children. “Basically, his reason for that is there’s not been a proven benefit for that.”

Ladapo tweeted about the CDC panel a day before the vote, saying nothing would change in Florida, whatever the result.

“Regardless of what @CDCgov votes tomorrow on whether COVID-19 vax are added to routine child immunizations – nothing changes in FL,” he wrote Tuesday. “Thanks to @GovRonDeSantis, COVID mandates are NOT allowed in FL, NOT pushed into schools, & I continue to recommend against them for healthy kids.”

Meanwhile, medical experts have pushed back on Ladapo’s stance on vaccines, according to Politico.

Missouri Gov. Mike Parson on Thursday also shared his opposition to mandatory vaccine requirements for children.

“As long as I am Governor of Missouri, I will do everything under my authority to never let the federal government mandate COVID vaccines in our schools,” he tweeted.

    I do not understand why they won’t end this pandemic and the EAU’s that go with it.
    Right now Pfizer and Moderna are making more money than ever.
    All the lies that left have told are slowly starting to come out.
    We need the truth from Big pharma, CDC, WHO, FDA, NIADA, BIDUM, Fraudci, Birx,.
    Until we put anything into our children, it needs to be tested, it needs to be approved by Dr’s (not left leaning), it has to be peer reviewed, it needs research and trials.
    The whole shebang.
    They didn’t even test to see if it would prevent COVID infection.

    Why should we trust in you people who have lied to us since early 2020?
    Nope…you all have got to go!

      The never ending scamdemic was never about anything but fear and eugenics. If the evil ones can scare you enough into eliminating yourself by injecting their poison, they consider it a job well done and if they can make billons while you cower and demand more medicine, all the better for them. Stop the insanity and just say ‘No”. Your body, your choice.

      This White House is tempting to control peoples lives, mass control that’s how Hitler became popular and how millions of Jews were sent to the guest chambers lies and more lies to control the population. Read the Bible end times revelations chapter 10 to 15 it’s happening in front of our face

  • Karen says:

    Thank goodness for some people with brains, to not mandate a shot. Children recover from Covid without vaccines, and have better immunity.

  • God to my Fingers says:

    So. some Foreigner who Does not Live in America does not have any Concourse in America and Tells you that you have to Let your Children, YOUR Children do as They say. You Gave Birth or were party to that Event a Event of Creation and God gave The Mother a Soul to give at First touch, that child does not belong to them in any way yet how they speak make you think its not. They have No hold on you so what Gives them any right to tell you that your child is not yours. God Gave it to you no strings but to live and Create Anew, all they Give is a Bunch of Words nothing of what God does

  • Joanne Martin says:

    Thank God for governors who will stand up to the CDC and allow no mandates for Covid injections. They are nothing like the present measles, mumps,rubella & polio vaccines / all around for years with no adverse effects (though some still insist childhood vacs cause autism which has been disproven multiple times). But kids are dying from heart ailments associated with Covid vaccines. God bless you Gov DeSantis & any other governor who has the guts to do this.

    Three additional COVID-19 vaccine injuries have met the bar for compensation, U.S. authorities announced Oct. 20.

    Six claims lodged with the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) have now been determined to be eligible for compensation, a Health Resources and Services Administration official told a meeting on vaccines. All the claims relate to COVID-19 vaccines.
