DeSantis: ‘As Long as I’m Around…There Will Be No Covid Mandates for Children’

‘That is your decision to make as being a parent, ‘ DeSantis mentioned.

Children in the Sunshine Condition will not be required to receive experimental mRNA Covid jabs during Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ (R) tenure.

The governor produced the declaration during a press conference Thursday, where he addressed the CDC’s recent election to add Covid-19 vaccines to the federal childhood immunization plan.

“ There’s been a lot of questions to our office about the CDC possibly adding COVID vaccines to the childhood immunization schedule. And I know a lot of parents are concerned about that because if that’s on the immunization schedule, the fear is that schools could potentially mandate your child to get a COVID shot even when that’s not something that you want to do, ” DeSantis told a crowd.

“ So I just want to let everyone be obvious, you know, as long as I’m around, as long as I’m kicking and screaming, there will be no COVID shot mandates for your children. That is your decision, ” DeSantis said as the crowd cheered in support. “ That is your decision to make as a parent. ”

The particular governor’s reassurances to mother and father come as the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices  voted 15-0 this week to add vaccine tips for children and adolescents to their immunization schedule starting at 6 months old.
