FORT LAUDERDALE (FLV) – Democrat State Sen. Jason Pizzo, representing Miami-Dade County, sponsored a bill supporting forced vaccinations, but in a five minute conversation did not directly respond to questions about the legislation Tuesday when confronted.
Conservative activist Chris Nelson approached Pizzo at a pro-abortion rights protest regarding the 2022 vaccination bill Pizzo filed.
NELSON: “You said you didn’t support a bill but I just called you out on it Jason. You introduced a bill to allow a public health officer to come to my house to order a vaccination. Did you not?”
PIZZO: “Let’s read the language of the bill.”
The bill states that the State Health Officer, upon declaration of a public health emergency, may take actions that are “necessary to protect the public health.” Those actions include “ordering an individual to be examined, tested, vaccinated” for communicable diseases that have significant morbidity or mortality.
The bill continues to say if there is no practical method to isolate a person, the State Health Officer may use “any means necessary to vaccinate” or treat the individual.
NELSON: “Why do you want vaccinations forced on citizens that don’t want them?”
PIZZO: “Are you being serious?”
NELSON: “This is what your bill says.”
The five minute conversation took place at a pro-abortion rights rally after a leaked U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion Monday suggested the Court may overturn the landmark pro-abortion case Roe v. Wade.
“But what if somebody doesn’t want it? What it’s doing is taking away the choice. You guys say ‘my body, my choice,’ but you filed this bill that takes away people’s choice to have a vaccine,” Nelson asked.
NELSON: “If the public health officer, according to your bill, orders a vaccination, how would they carry that out if I didn’t want it?
PIZZO: “If the people down the street, there was an ebola outbreak, you think that the government has no role whatsoever in containing, treating and testing…”
NELSON: “Forcing vaccinations – absolutely not. My body, my choice.”
PIZZO: “Your body, your choice. The irony that you’re here. Your body, your choice.”
NELSON: “Jason, you said your bill doesn’t say that but it does.”
