(JustPatriots.com)- In response to claims that he “reversed course” by allowing medical professionals to order the COVID-19 vaccination for children under the age of five, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) said the White House and media outlets were lying about Florida’s health policy.
DeSantis stated during a press conference that he was not shocked the White House would lie and absolutely not surprised that traditional media would propagate the lie because that’s what they do.
Cable news reports show Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary for the White House, stated on Friday that DeSantis “reversed course” and decided to permit medical professionals to prescribe the injections for children between the ages of six months and five following “multiple failures” to do so. However, Florida’s surgeon general, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, claimed that the state has always permitted doctors to order immunizations. DeSantis stated on Thursday that Florida opposes the vaccination of young children with the COVID vaccine and would not mandate the vaccine to be given to them. However, it will not prevent healthcare workers from dispensing it independently.
Governor DeSantis explained that doctors could get the vaccines. They are available to hospitals. However, there won’t be any state initiatives attempting to provide COVID vaccinations to infants or toddlers. Florida won’t be using its resources for that.
According to medical reports, Governor DeSantis’ policy on infant immunization is similar to that of Scandinavian nations like Denmark and Norway, which do not provide vaccines to children under the age of five. Sweden decided not to recommend immunization for children under age eleven due to the low risk of severe disease for kids.
Only eighteen percent of parents are ready for their children who are under five to receive the vaccination, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation survey.
Since the vaccination became available to children aged 5 to 11 in November, less than one-third of those youngsters have taken it.
As always, the unelected are pushing the citizens around, and the elected do nothing.
