Gov. Ron DeSantis Comes Out Strong Against Vaccine Passports, Says They Would Be ‘Completely Unacceptable’ In Florida

Michael Cantrell

After reports from New York explaining how they plan to rollout the usage of vaccine passports for folks who receive vaccination against the coronavirus (known as the Excelsior Pass), Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis promises the people of his state that they will not be implementing any “vaccine passports in the state of Florida.”

This is what real leadership during a pandemic looks like.

A new report from Life Site News says that the Florida governor held a press conference on Monday where he rebuffed the idea of vaccine credentials, saying that it is “completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you [the public] the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society.”

“Taking one of the experimental mRNA shots has been advised by state officials for the very vulnerable, with DeSantis saying, ‘it’s important to be able to do it.’ At the same time, he also vowed that ‘we were not going to force you to do it … we always wanted to say, ‘we provide it for all, mandate it for none,'” the report continues.

DeSantis then doubled down saying “[t]here was never under discussion any mandates to take vaccines, we will not have COVID vaccines mandated in Florida … we are not going to have you provide proof of this just to be able to live your life normally.”

“He gave examples of places that might seek proof of vaccination with one of the abortion-tainted products, like movie theaters and theme parks, insisting that such a state of affairs would not be permitted in Florida: ‘We’re not supportive of that,'” LSN reports.

“He also warned of the dangers associated with handing over sensitive medical information to ‘some big corporation’ via vaccine passport systems, likening the situation to allowing ‘the fox to guard the henhouse,'” the report adds.

“I mean, give me a break! … This is something that has huge privacy implications, it is not necessary to do,” the Florida governor said. “People have certain freedoms and individual liberties to make decisions for themselves.”

Gov. DeSantis has promised to sign an executive order in the coming days that will ban the implementation of vaccine passports for the coronavirus.

President Joe Biden, according to reports, is currently working with many businesses in the private sector to develop vaccine credential technology. And yet, these people don’t see the problem with this? Or maybe they just don’t care?

Wonder if you’ll have to show proof of vaccination to show up at a polling place to vote?
