Zephyrhills, Florida – Monday morning Gov. Ron DeSantis held firm on his stance against vaccine mandates during a media conference.
In order to prevent employers and schools statewide from issuing COVID-19 vaccine requirements, DeSantis announced a series of proposals.
Businesses that refuse to comply would be subject to an investigation and could face a fine of up to $50,000.
“Nobody — no cop, no firefighter, no nurse — nobody should be losing these jobs because of these jabs,” the governor said. “We have got to stand up for people and protect their jobs and protect their livelihoods.”
The bills will be taken up in a special legislative session DeSantis scheduled for next week.
