Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis warned Monday that cities and counties in his state that comply with President Biden’s mandate and force employees to get vaccinated will be fined $5,000 per infraction.
“We are here today to make it very clear that we are going to stand for the men and women who are serving. We are going to protect Florida jobs,” DeSantis said at a news conference in Alachua County. . .
DeSantis said that Biden’s mandate violates a new Florida law, SB 2006, which bans private businesses from requiring customers to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination, or “vaccine passports.”
The Florida law also applies to governments, he said.
The governor pointed to a recent study from Israel finding that natural immunity provided by a previous SARS CoV-2 infection is 27 times more effective than the Pfizer vaccine.
