West Palm Beach, Fla. (WFLA) – Gov. Ron DeSantis and Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo will hold a roundtable on Vaccine Responsiveness for COVID-19 mRNA Shots.
The roundtable was titled “Public Health Integrity Committee” and included a number of medical and health education experts who spoke about the risks from COVID-19 vaccines and expressed concern about the politicization of medical science during the pandemic.
The event follows previous announcements by the governor about holding COVID vaccine manufacturers “accountable” for the side effects of vaccines.
When announcing the accountability initiative on December 9, DeSantis cited several studies that found an increased risk of myocarditis and pericarditis in adolescent and young male patients receiving bivalent, mRNA vaccines for COVID-19.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has previously acknowledged the risks of myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle, although it noted that cases were rarely reported.
State officials have said on various occasions in the past that their own study found the risk and diagnosis of myocarditis after COVID vaccination was up to 86% for patients ages 18 to 39 who received mRNA vaccines. The Florida Department of Health guidance currently does not recommend vaccination for healthy children.
After the roundtable ended, the governor’s press secretary, Brian Griffin, announced that the state would seek the following accountability measures regarding “Covid response blunders and lies.”
governor’s office release notice The jury regarding the investigation, if empaneled, will perform. They will include investigations of the pharmaceutical industry and the US Food and Drug Administration, related to their refusal to “release patient-level data to independent researchers” as well as “crimes and wrongdoings related to COVID-19 vaccines in Florida and further recommendation” methods of enforcement. ,

In the brief filed with the Florida Supreme Court, government officials such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and various company leaders from Pfizer and Moderna listed what the state called “representations” suggesting that the vaccines they produced could end the pandemic and prevent viral transmission completely. can stop from , but the accuracy of those claims were now “questioned”.
The state will also create a Public Advisory Board under the supervision of LADAPO to oversee the “advancement of the public health establishment”. In addition to Ladapo’s leadership role on the Public Health Integrity Committee, the surgeon general will reportedly “conduct research, through the University of Florida, to assess sudden deaths of individuals in good health who received a COVID-19 vaccine.” This would then happen in what the state calls “autopsy surveillance”.
