Follows up his vow to hold Pfizer and Moderna 'accountable'
Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Tuesday at a roundtable with prominent health scientists he will petition for a statewide grand jury to investigate any harm done by the COVID-19 vaccines.
"Today, I’m announcing a petition with the Supreme Court of Florida to impanel a statewide grand jury to investigate any and all wrongdoing in Florida with respect to COVID-19 vaccines," DeSantis said.
"We anticipate that we will get the approval for that, that will be something that will be impaneled most likely in the Tampa Bay area, and that will come with legal processes that will be able to get more information and to bring legal accountability for those who committed misconduct."
Among the participants in the roundtable in West Palm Beach, Florida, were Dr. Jay Battacharya of Stanford, Dr. Tracy Hoeg of University of California at Davis, former Harvard epidemiologist Martin Kulldorf, and author, podcaster and former science professor Bret Weinstein.
At a roundtable last Wednesday in the nation's capital led by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., acclaimed cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough was among the health scientists calling for the COVID-19 vaccines to be immediately withdrawn.
At the DeSantis event Tuesday, Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo said the state also is initiating a program to study the incidence of myocarditis in people who died within weeks of receiving COVID-19 vaccination.
"This is going to be a surveillance study ... working with some of our medical examiners in Florida. We're also going to be working with the University of Florida so there will be a component that has more of a research or research forum to it, but we will answer this question," Ladapo explained.
"It is a question that I’m sure keeps the CEOs of Pfizer and Moderna up late at night hoping no one ever looks, but we’re going to look here in Florida."
DeSantis also announced the creation of a Public Health Integrity Committee "to assess recommendations and guidance related to public health and healthcare, but particularly being able to offer critical assessments of things that bureaucracies like the FDA, CDC, and NIH are doing."
