Florida governor Ron DeSantis said in a press conference Monday he is against the push for Vaccine passports.
The Florida Republican said “it’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply participate in normal society. You want to go to a movie theater, should you have to show that? No. You want to go to a game, a theme park? No. So we’re not supportive of that.”
“We always said we wanted to provide it for all but mandate it for none,” he continued “and that was something that, while it was advised to take particularly if you’re vulnerable, we were not going to force you to do it.”
“You’re going to do this and, what, give all this information to some big corporation? You want the fox to guard the hen house?” DeSantis asked.
“I mean give me a break/ I think this is something that has huge privacy implications. It is not necessary to do,” he concluded.
Monday, Donald Trump Jr. also railed against Vaccine passports.
