JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Just one day after the United States Supreme Court upheld the Biden Administration’s policy requiring health care workers to get vaccinated, the governor’s office fired back saying Florida will not enforce it.
The rule comes as the health care worker vaccination rule approaches a deadline -- Jan. 27 for their first shot. Thursday’s ruling from the Supreme Court now means health care workers across the U.S. will be required to get vaccinated for COVID-19.
Hours before the ruling came down, Gov. Ron DeSantis reiterated there’s no way that’s happening in the Sunshine State.
“The medical mandate for the nurses and doctors what they’re trying to do is insane. In Florida, we provided protections, so they were rehired,” said DeSantis.
