Florida To Officially Recommend Against Giving Vaccine To Healthy Children

Videos by OutKick

The idea of kids being inoculated against COVID-19 has been questioned by both sides of the political aisle since the vaccine became available, and it appears some politicians are taking action.

Or more specifically, politicians in Florida are taking action.

According to Florida surgeon general Joseph A. Ladapo, “Florida will become the first state to recommend against the COVID-19 vaccine for healthy children,” relayed Karol Markowicz of the New York Post and Fox News.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is behind the recommendation, with Ladapo offering full support via a Monday roundtable.

“It came after a 90-minute discussion from medical experts skeptical of the benefits of various coronavirus mitigation measures such as vaccine mandates, mask requirements and business closures,” wrote the Tampa Bay Times.

This contradicts what the CDC recommends, of course. It has suggested that all children, regardless of health status, be vaccinated.

So Florida’s recommendation, per Ladapo, will be the first of its kind in the country. Other states will almost certainly follow suit.

  1. Finally, some politician and public officials with some balls. Though they need to extend to anyone under 60. And anyone under 75 it’s optional. Over 75, fine, recommend it but I still wouldn’t. And stop criminalizing doctors who repurpose affordable medicines that have shown effectiveness. Let them do their jobs. And tell the CDC they better get some damn good lawyers.

  2. Sorry but we all know if you question Dr. Lapado you must be a racist. Forgot……he is not a dem…..please forgive me. I thought he was part of the most diverse and incompetent administration in history but he makes to much sense to be part of that group.

  3. Isn’t just AMAMZING how China Virus has just gone away…
    However, we still have medical professionals who have been both threatened and/or terminated because they choose a different approach to treat their patients, e.g., Ivermectin or HCQ (as we know, both safe, cheep & effective…) verses, untested- yes, no prospective data on any of the 3 Vaccines & complete indemnification by vaccine makers via Emergency Utilization Act (that means people killed by jabs are not able to get $$ from manufactures…). I spent 20 years in Big Pharma. I got J&J. This thing is Orwellian & those who did it need to be made to walk the plank…
