Alright, this story may ruffle some feathers.
But coming from someone with deep ties to the Sunshine state, I was deeply concerned when diving deeper into Florida’s legislation to ban COVID-19 vaccine passports.
I’ve praised Governor DeSantis for his stance against lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccine passports.
But the bill he signed on May 3rd actually gives the state government tyrannical powers that should raise alarms for Florida residents.
While the legislation does prevent the government, businesses, and educational institutes from requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination, it allows the government to force vaccinate citizens by “any means necessary.”
If you’re deemed a threat to public health, the Florida state government now has the authority to forcibly vaccinate you.
And for anyone who refuses, you go to isolation or quarantine.

FLorida’s Rhino Gov. Ron Desantis passed FL SB 2006 that allows a state health worker to force vaccinate a citizen using “any means necessary”, which is immediately enforceable by any officer of the law. This is no joke. He knows what he signed. Look it up. Lines 1107-1115.

Here’s the section of the bill that addresses forced vaccinations.

And a link to the entire text of the bill
Lines 1097 – 1118 discuss forced vaccinations.
That’s scary information right there.
It reads eerily similar to the proposed NY State Assembly Bill A416.
Fema camps, medical tyranny, forced injections or treatments.

Even in liberal New York, that bill remains in the assembly committee phase.
Another thing that raised my eyebrows was DeSantis pushing the experimental COVID-19 vaccines on cue with other Republican governors and FOX News pundits.
His language wasn’t as severe as Alabama Governor Kay Ivey but it still raised suspicions.
DeSantis lying through his TEETH!
Just listen 👂

If it’s truly voluntary Governor DeSantis, then why does the legislation give the government this wicked power?
I’m not assuming that DeSantis himself would invoke the powers in the bill.
But what if the next governor decides too?
If DeSantis wants to squash suspicions, then the bill should be revised to remove this section.
Because the bill went into effect in July.
An overlooked section of Florida Senate Bill 2006, put into law by the state legislature and Governor Ron DeSantis on May 3, 2021, allows government officials to forcibly vaccinate citizens.
Ironically, the bill was widely supported as it was allegedly intended to ban vaccine passports in Florida.“In Florida, your personal choice regarding vaccinations will be protected and no business or government entity will be able to deny you services based on your decision,” DeSantis told Floridians.
While the legislature does prohibit private businesses and government entities from asking for proof of a COVID vaccination, it also allows the state to vaccinate citizens “by any means necessary”.
Under Section 315 of Chapter 381 of Florida’s ‘Public Health’ statute, Title XXIX, individuals can be subjected to quarantine or isolation if they refuse to be examined, tested, vaccinated or treated during a public health emergency such as COVID-19.
“Examination, testing, vaccination, or treatment may be performed by any qualified person authorized by the State Health Officer,” the bill explains.
The bill continues, “If the individual poses a danger to the public health, the State Health Officer may subject the individual to isolation or quarantine. If there is no practical method to isolate or quarantine the individual, the State Health Officer may use any means necessary to vaccinate or treat the individual.”
The legislature says any order given to police by the State Health Officer that helps force-vaccinate a person is immediately enforceable.
In addition, volunteers who help the state vaccinate or quarantine people will be provided with lodging, transportation, state liability protection and workers’ compensation.
