Florida to Become 1st State to Recommend Against COVID Vaccine for Healthy Kids; FL Surgeon General: Data Did Not Support Lockdowns, Mass Masking as a ‘Cure-All,’ and other C-Virus related stories

Florida to become 1st state to recommend against COVID vaccine for healthy kids:
Florida will become the first state in the nation to formally recommend against COVID-19 vaccines for healthy children, a local official said Monday.
Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo announced the move, which would defy guidance issued by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that all children ages 5 to 7 should be vaccinated.
“The Florida Department of Health is going to be the first state to officially recommend against the COVID-19 vaccines for healthy children,” Ladapo said.
He did not elaborate or specify when the agency would officially release its guidelines.
The CDC has said that coronavirus vaccinations give children 5 and older strong protection against hospitalization and death from the illness.
Children are less likely than adults to experience severe symptoms from COVID-19, but public health experts have said the vaccines further reduce their risk and help prevent them from spreading the virus --->READ MORE HERE

Florida Surgeon General: Data Did Not Support Lockdowns, Mass Masking as a ‘Cure-All’:
Throughout the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, the data has not backed extremist policies such as extended lockdowns and mass masking, Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo said during Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R) roundtable discussion on ending “COVID theater” on Monday, where he noted the mental gymnastics the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has employed in updating its guidance.
The roundtable featured Ladapo, DeSantis, and physicians nationwide, all of whom discussed the importance of ending COVID theater “once and for all.”
“We’ve had a lot of people with great degrees hang their reputations on the false statement — and I say false based on what we see in terms of the data — that the lockdowns or the mask mandates or the vaccine mandates would be a cure-all,” Ladapo said during the roundtable discussion.
“And you look at the data, you know these things go around on the internet, and you sort of look at the rise in cases and the fall in cases of different locations in this country, outside of this country that have implemented different mandates,” he said. --->READ MORE HERE
