Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo told Americans to avoid the new COVID-19 shot to become available later this month.

“There’s essentially no evidence for it,” Ladapo said at a ‘Mandate Freedom’ press conference with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

“There’s been no clinical trial done in human beings showing that it benefits people. There’s been no clinical trial showing that it is a safe product for people,” he continued.

“These mRNA COVID-19 products actually increase your chances of contracting COVID-19. That’s not normal,” he added.

And while the US Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization and most nations around the world tout mRNA-style COVID-19 vaccines as safe and effective, Ladapo dismissed supporters of vaccines and encouraged people who don’t want to get vaccinated to go with their gut.

Lapado also applauded the governor for standing against experts with “PhDs and MDs” who pushed for social distancing, masking and vaccinations despite his nonexistent background in the medical realm.

“Remember that experience of hearing these very educated people telling you what you should think but then listening inside to what makes sense, right? What feels right. You know what feels like truth,” Lapado said.

“We’re all in different points in our spiritual journeys, but we all have that connection at some level. And when they try to convince you to be comfortable and agree with things that don’t feel comfortable, and don’t feel like things you should agree with, that is a sign … That’s a gift that’s one of that’s something that we’re endowed with from our Creator.”

Ladapo previously told Americans to refuse participation with policies known to cause harm.

“What do you call re-imposing mask policies that have been proven ineffective or restarting lockdowns that are known to cause harm? You don’t call it sanity. These terrible policies only work with your cooperation. How about refusing to participate,” Ladapo said.

Daily Mail noted that approval of the latest COVID-19 booster by the Big Pharma-captured regulatory agencies is imminent.

Approval of the updated COVID-19 booster shots is expected within days. Pfizer, Moderna and Novavax all have manufactured new versions of the vaccine.


Similar to how flu shots are updated each year, the FDA gave COVID-19 vaccine makers a new recipe, targeting the variant that was dominant over the summer.

But as expected, the XBB.1.5 variant it targets has faded away in the months it took to tweak the vaccine.

CDC estimates show XBB.1.5 is responsible for about 3 percent of current cases, while a soup of other newer Omicron variants dominates, led by EG.5 at about 20 percent.

In his remarks at Thursday’s event, held inside an Irish pub in Jacksonville, DeSantis vowed Florida would not be temporarily closing schools or mandating mask-wearing because of the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases.

‘People are lurching toward this insanity again,’ DeSantis said. ‘As we see these things being orchestrated … there needs to be pushback.’
