Florida lawmaker files bill to strip state of power to order vaccinations

Monday Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R-FL) tweeted “JUST FILED a Bill to eliminate the State’s power to mandate and force vaccines upon citizens during a declared state of emergency.”

He added “government should not be able to forcibly vaccinate—it should always be an individual choice.”

According to the Tallahasee Democrat, if the bill passes and is signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), it will not take effect until July 1st.

DeSantis has said the state would not force anyone to get a COVID-19 vaccine. “That is going to be the choice of each and every Floridian,” DeSantis said.
