(PatrioticPost.com)- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has followed through on his plans to ban the use of COVID vaccine passports, a controversial idea being pushed by the Biden White House and developed by various major corporations intending to discriminate against Americans who don’t wish to take the vaccine.
Governor DeSantis, the Florida Republican keeping President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” agenda alive, issued an executive order this week that bans the production, use, and enforcement of vaccine passports or any other similar document across the entire state – and the ban is effective immediately.
DeSantis made his opposition to vaccine passports very clear during a Monday press conference.
“It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you’re the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society,” he said.
“We always said we want to provide it for all, but mandate it for none.”

Under the new emergency rules, businesses are banned from requiring customers to present their proof of vaccination in the state. The governor also said that he would work with the state legislature to work on a permanent measure that would keep the rule in place long-term.
The ban specifically relates to passports for the COVID-19 vaccines approved by the Food and Drug Administration. It does not affect the requirement of schools and universities for students to have measles vaccinations.
The Biden White House has said that the federal government would not be involved in the creation of vaccine passports, but some reports have revealed how anonymous insiders have seen multiple federal agencies working on the project.
DeSantis has also slammed the Centers for Disease Control for its rhetoric on the pandemic, specifically Director Rochelle Walensky’s comment on Monday that there was a feeling of “impending doom.”
“When you start talking about doom, what you’re saying is that the vaccines must not work, because we’ve had millions and millions of people around the country vaccinated,” he said.
Is there any way we can clone Ron DeSantis and have him stand for election in all the other states?
