DeSantis Just Told Them If They Ask For Vax Proof It Will Cost Them BIG!

Governor Ron DeSantis has now mandated that any Florida business that mandates the proof of the vaccination will face a $5,000 fine for each violation.

Last May, DeSantis signed a bill that allowed “the state to issue fines beginning September 16th where people are asked to show proof that they have received a COVID-19 vaccine before being allowed into a business, government building, or school,” according to WFTV 9.

The legislation denotes that businesses, government entities, and schools in the Sunshine State are going to be fined $5,000 “per individual and separate violation.”

“Those who violate the rule will be issued a notice of the infraction and have a chance to appeal the fine,” WFTV 9 noted. “If the appeal fails, the fine must be paid within 30 days.”

“If a government agency in the state of Florida forces a vaccine as a condition of employment, that violates Florida law and you will face a $5,000 fine for every single violation,” the Republican governor said recently.

DeSantis has established himself as one of the nation’s most prominent governors, and he has led the way in vaccination accessibility. However, at the same time, he has become a leader in personal freedom as well. For example, he recently blasted President Biden for mandating vaccination for all federal employees – even though there will be some apparent exemptions – and also forced many private businesses to mandate against COVID as well.

“These mandates, this is not about science — because if it was about science, you would recognize the infection conferred immunity,” DeSantis recently said. “Israel did a study. They said it was much, much more protective than the Pfizer vaccine. Cleveland Clinic did a study, same thing. Every single credible study always shows that it [natural immunity] provides good protection. And so that’s just the reality.”

“So I don’t support mandates at all, but if you’re doing a mandate based off this, if you were really following science, you would acknowledge this natural immunity,” the Republican continued. “And instead they ignore it.”

DeSantis also hit Biden for his hypocritical vaccine exemptions that do not appear to match with science.

The Biden administration “issuing this mandate for private-sector employees, but also for all federal employees, but they’re exempting the post office. They’re exempting members of Congress and members of Congress’s staff. So how does that work?” questioned DeSantis. “Can someone explain the science to me behind the exemption? First of all, I don’t think the post office should be forced either, but if you’re going to do a mandate and you say you’re following science and you exempt a major part of the federal workforce, and then you exempt Congress and you exempt the staff of Congress.”

“When I was in Congress, I actually proposed the 28th amendment,” he said. “Congress shouldn’t make any law that doesn’t apply to them and their staff. So those glaring exemptions. So if you’re somebody who’s working again, I don’t think postal should be forced. Don’t get me wrong. But Biden thinks everyone should be forced except you deliver mail somehow. That’s fine. But if you’re somebody — a nurse who’s been working in the ICU for a private hospital for a year and a half treating COVID patients and likely has already had COVID then somehow you’re going to get fired unless you follow the mandate. How does that make sense at all?”

“It doesn’t, this is all political. It’s all about using the government. And it’s wrong.”

Kudos to Governor DeSantis for taking a stand for personal freedom!
