DeSantis's Surgeon General is anti-vax

WaPo: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s effort to assure everyone he’s not playing footsie with anti-vaccine Republicans has once again run into reality.

When opinion pieces in local newspapers this summer blamed DeSantis (R) for not supporting vaccinations enough amid a huge spike in cases, his spokesperson assured Fox News, “The governor has consistently stated that vaccines are safe and effective in preventing serious illness in most people.”

Since then, though, DeSantis has stood silently beside a speaker promoting the bogus conspiracy theory that vaccines change your RNA. And a week later, he appointed a new surgeon general with a controversial history that included not just opposing vaccine mandates, but downplaying the importance of vaccines. The doctor, Joseph Ladapo, also aligned with a fringe group of medical professionals, called America’s Frontline Doctors, which pushed hydroxychloroquine as a “cure” for the virus and later fought against the emergency authorization of the vaccines.
