Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law that was allegedly intended to ban vaccine passports in the state by prohibiting private businesses and government entities from asking for proof of a COVID vaccination. The bill was widely supported, but an overlooked section of the bill states that individuals who refuse to be examined, tested, vaccinated or treated may be subjected to quarantine or isolation. The bill further states: “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 (the state’s Surgeon General) that helps force-vaccinate a person is immediately enforceable.

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.”

This smacks of typical government doublespeak. I am appalled that Governor De Santis did not read all of this or signed it anyway.

Why? They’d only get another tyrant to replace him. The only difference between a “conservative” tyrant and a “liberal” one is that with the “conservative” a somewhat greater APPEARANCE of moderation and restraint has to be maintained. That is so that the public should continue to BELIEVE in the system as though there was any substantive difference between them. In effect, the only benefit derived from hosting a shill like Trump as opposed to one like Biden is that in Trump’s case, the process of Balkanization and induced national bankruptcy must appear to be slowed somewhat and therefore a gesture… Read more »

The problem with your belief is that there isn’t a Public Health emergency. Year on year total Deaths all Causes is slightly lower in 2020 compared to the last 5 years so consequently, Life Insurance Rates did not increase in 2021.
