Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is taking a stand against the draconian “vaccine passports” making their way into the American purview.
The MAGA governor vowed to issue an executive order banning corporations, small businesses, and local governments from requiring a vaccine passport from Florida residents.

He called on his Republican colleagues from other states to take a similar stand against the passports.
DeSantis’ promise comes as reports emerge of the Biden administration backing – and funding- a nationwide vaccine passport used to restrict non-vaccinated Americans from certain public spaces.
Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, address the issue on Monday saying the development of all vaccine passport programs “will be driven by the private sector.”
Meanwhile, Republican state leaders like DeSantis have voiced their opposition to any such program, claiming vaccine passports pose “huge privacy implications” and isn’t needed.
DeSantis is heralding his own response to the coronavirus pandemic, highlighting that Florida “uplifted its people” with common sense anti-lockdown measures, while other states kept children out of schools and people out of work.
