For months, there have been people, and I included that have hailed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as a hero in the nation. The one governor with a set to stick it to Joe Biden and his Marxist buddies, but is he really that awesome or is he another wolf in sheep clothing?
On May 3, DeSantis banned so-called “vaccine passports” which had all the medical freedom advocates cheering and for good reason. There is no reason AT ALL that the government should have the POWER to force or tell people that they need to show proof of vaccine status to travel.
However, that is not the section I am speaking about at all, but a little-known section that goes into effect on July 1.
This section states:
“The state health officer, upon declaration of a public health emergency, may take actions that are necessary to protect the public health.” Some of these actions include: “Ordering an individual to be examined, tested, vaccinated, treated, isolated, or quarantined for communicable diseases that have a significant morbidity or mortality and present a severe danger to public health.” Those refusing these actions “may be subjected to isolation or quarantine.”
Though while that may make your skin crawl, it is the next section that should have everyone up in arms.
“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.”
In the mass frenzy to applaud Governor DeSantis for banning Vaccine Passports, this section of the law was paid little attention. While this exact wording already exists in the 2018 Florida Statute 281.00315
(Read here: https://www.flsenate.gov/laws/statutes/2018/381.00315) it has further been strengthened by this new law.
Bottom line, in a declared public health crisis you can be forcibly vaccinated in the State of Florida and Governor Ron DeSantis has added his stamp of approval to this policy.

I would suggest everyone get on the phone and call DeSantis’s office, and let your voice be heard on this one, and the sooner the better.
