TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo said that COVID-19 vaccines do not stop the transmission of the disease, arguing against vaccine mandates.

“How can you force people to take a vaccine in order to stop transmission when that vaccine is not effective at stopping transmission?” the Harvard graduate said. “You don’t have to go to medical school to know that doesn’t make sense.”

On the comments, First Lady Casey DeSantis said she believes that Ladapo is the “greatest surgeon general in the country.”

President Joe Biden claimed earlier in the pandemic that vaccinated Americans will not become infected with COVID-19.

“You’re OK – you’re not gonna get COVID if you have these vaccinations,” Biden claimed.

Today, ‘experts’ widely agree that the vaccines do not prevent transmission of COVID-19, including Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“It is clear that they [vaccinated and infected with COVID-19] are capable of transmitting the infection to uninfected individuals,” Fauci said last year. “Vaccinated people who do have a breakthrough infection are clearly capable of transmitting the infection to an uninfected person.”

In March, the Florida Department of Health issued new guidance on the vaccine, saying that the risks to healthy children may outweigh the benefits.

“Based on currently available data, healthy children aged 5 to 17 may not benefit from receiving the currently available COVID-19 vaccine,” they said.

The Department lists multiple factors that “may” cause risks to outweigh benefits of the vaccine, including their already low risk of severe illness to COVID-19, high prevalence of immunity in children, absence of data supporting vaccination benefit on children with immunity, higher than anticipated adverse events in vaccine recipients, reduced efficacy in children 5-17, and the risk of myocarditis (heart inflammation) due to the vaccine.

It notes that children with underlying health conditions or comorbidities should be considered with their doctor.

“In general, healthy children with no significant underlying health conditions under 16 years old are at little to no risk of severe illness complications from COVID-19.”

Ladapo was appointed by Gov. Ron DeSantis in Sep. 2021: “He has had both a remarkable academic and medical career with a strong emphasis in health policy research. Dr. Ladapo will bring great leadership to the Department of Health.”
