Florida’s chief surgeon, Dr. Joseph Ladapa, said Monday that the state does not officially recommend Vaccination against Covid-19 for healthy children.

Ladopa made the remarks at a roundtable event hosted by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, which was attended by doctors who criticized the coronavirus blockade and mandate policy.

It was not immediately clear when the state would release its new instructions.

Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends “Everyone aged five and older is getting the Covid-19 vaccine to help protect against Covid-19.”

It adds: “Widespread vaccination against Covid-19 is an important tool to best protect everyone from Covid-19 and the complications associated with Covid-19.”

The Florida The state senate has confirmed Ladopa as surgeon general, despite criticism that his anti-virus health policy is too much in line with DeSantis ’anti-blocking policy and mandate.

Late last month, Ladapo and DeSantis announced new guidelines for counteracting viruses that prevent the wearing of masks and encourage doctors to follow considerations when treating patients with the virus, including using new treatments and drugs that are not prescribed.

Last week, DeSantis hit national headlines scolding college students in Tampa who was the background for the performance and who was in the masks when he came out on the podium.

At the end of the discussion in Tallahassee, Ladapa said: “The Florida Department of Health will be the first state not to officially recommend the Covid-19 vaccine for healthy children.

“We kind of scrape the bottom of the barrel, especially with healthy children, in terms of the fact that we can with any accuracy and confidence determine even the potential benefits.”

The CDC says children between the ages of five and 11 should be vaccinated because “there were nearly 2 million cases of Covid-19 in this age group during the pandemic.

“Children who have contracted Covid-19 can become very ill, will need hospitalization and even die. In addition, infected children of primary school age can distribute Covid-19 to people in their families and at school.

“As many children return to school and participate in extracurricular activities, vaccination against Covid-19 is crucial to prevent infection and serious illness, as well as to slow the spread of Covid-19.”
