Florida Begins Dispensing $5K Fines for Vaccine Proof Requirements

Around the nation, there are a number of disparate ways in which local governments are dealing with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the CDC guidelines surrounding it.  For the most part, cities and states are adhering closely to the advice of the Biden administration, but there are some holdouts, with Florida being chief among them.

Ron DeSantis, the Sunshine State Governor, has long maintained that his citizens would not be subjected to an overbearing government, or one that would make medical decisions for them, as opposed to recognizing the bodily sovereignty that every American is born with.

And, in this pursuit of freedom, DeSantis is now beginning to roll out major fines against any business or school that would seek to inquire about a person’s vaccination status.

Florida is set to start fining businesses, government entities and schools up to $5,000 for asking customers or visitors to show proof they have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“Promises made, promises kept,” a spokesperson for Gov. Ron DeSantis, Taryn Fenske, said of the rule explaining the fines, according to Fox 13.

The Florida Department of Health published a rule last week titled, “Penalties for COVID-19 Vaccine Documentation Requirements,” that will take effect on Sept. 16 and will result in fines of up to $5,000 being issued “per individual and separate violation.” Fines will need to be paid within 30 days.

DeSantis has been adamant about erring on the side of liberty in relation to the coronavirus pandemic, with many of his critics suggesting that this is all a ploy for national attention as he considers the possibility of a run for the White House in 2024.
