In a move that takes their reckless COVID response to a new level, Governor Ron DeSantis and his vaccine skeptic Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo are formally cautioning against vaccinating healthy children against COVID-19. This is just the latest in a long pattern of dangerous policies in DeSantis’s disastrous and political response to the pandemic. While Ron DeSantis played politics with COVID-19, President Biden and Democrats delivered critical funding to help get over 200 million Americans fully vaccinated – thanks to the American Rescue Plan. 

Ron DeSantis’s actions have exacerbated the pandemic in Florida and are endangering the lives of Florida’s children and families:
