By Chris Nelson. June 21, 2021. ***CORRECTION: THE LAW, SB2006, SIGNED BY GOVERNOR DESANTIS DOES NOT CREATE A FORCED VACCINATION STATUTE, BUT FAILS TO REMOVE ONE THAT IS ALREADY ON THE BOOKS.***A law signed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis does not remove the ability of the Florida Department of Health to forcibly vaccinate Florida residents. S.B. 2006 was signed into law by DeSantis on May 3, 2021 and immediately hailed as a major victory by many medical freedom advocates. The law bans so-called "Vaccine Passports" and adds certain restrictions on state and local governments during a declared public health emergency. A little known and little spoken of section of the original statute states: "The state health officer, upon declaration of a public health emergency, may take actions that are necessary to protect the public health." Some of these actions include: "Ordering an individual to be examined, tested, vaccinated, treated, isolated, or quarantined for communicable diseases that have a significant morbidity or mortality and present a severe danger to public health." Those refusing these actions "may be subjected to isolation or quarantine." The most disturbing part is a section beneath which reads, "If the individual poses a danger to the public health, the State Health Officer may subject the individual to isolation or quarantine, if there is no practical method to isolate or quarantine the individual, the State Health Officer may use ANY MEANS NECESSARY to vaccinate or treat the individual." This section of the existing statute was paid little attention to and a bill by Anthony Sabatini which would have removed it was killed in committee. (Read here: https://www.flsenate.gov/laws/statutes/2018/381.00315) Bottom line, in a declared public health crisis you can be forcibly vaccinated in the State of Florida and SB 2006 does nothing to change this policy.
