(NaturalHealth365) Frequently the butt of jokes, Florida has stood out during the pandemic as a state that has overwhelmingly respected its citizens’ medical freedom while simultaneously handling its response to the COVID-19 pandemic laudably.
At one point nearly a year ago, for example, the state of Florida reached the lowest case rate for COVID-19 in the entire nation – all in a state without mask mandates and egregious lockdowns. And supporters say that leadership like that of the Florida Surgeon General has contributed to these promising public health trends.
In light of new randomized trial data, Florida Surgeon General has an important question to ask doctors.
Dr. Joseph Ladapo, MD, Ph.D., has had quite a year.
On September 21, 2021, Lapado, a Nigerian-born American physician and researcher, was appointed as Surgeon General of Florida by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. At the same time, Dr. Lapado was appointed to the position of associate professor at the University of Florida Health. And from the very beginning of his tenure, Surgeon General Lapado made waves in the headlines.
In March 2022, for example, Surgeon General Lapado announced that Florida would become the first state in the country that would recommend AGAINST giving COVID-19 shots to kids age 5 and older, parting ways with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the matter.
Citing the lack of sufficient clinical trial data on these shots for kids – and noting that healthy children are among the least likely to experience serious effects from COVID-19, thus would potentially assume greater risks than benefits from getting vaxxed – the Surgeon General had actually petitioned the CDC three months earlier to halt the approval mRNA jab’s approval.
By the time Surgeon General Lapado announced these recommendations in March, he had already made a name for himself as a conscientious critic of quarantines, face masks, and mask mandates. Earlier this month, the Surgeon General spoke out again about the COVID vax controversy.
In a September 2 Twitter post, Dr. Lapado wrote: “New study published in #Vaccine shows concerning rate of serious adverse events after mRNA vaccination, but estimates are limited b/c @pfizer & @moderna_tx won’t release patient-level trial data.”
He then asks: “Why are doctors blindly following Big Pharma? ”
It’s a legitimate question, especially considering the growing collection of evidence that calls into question the true safety of these gene-based jabs.

In February of this year, Governor DeSantis and Surgeon General Lapado released a list of updated COVID-19 recommendations for the Sunshine State, many of which were or are at stark odds with the guidelines, restrictions, and mandates found in other states across the nation.
“People want to live freely in Florida, without corporate masking creating a two-tier society and without overbearing isolation for children,” said Governor Ron DeSantis after announcing the updated guidelines for his constituents. “We are empowering health care practitioners to follow science, not Fauci’s status quo.”
Pledging to push back on “unscientific” guidelines and urging Florida physicians to “exercise their individual clinical judgment and expertise based on their patients’ needs and preferences,” Governor DeSantis and Surgeon General Lapado announced several public health updates, including:
End corporate masking for employees
Ensure doctors have a “right to try treatments” and advise health care providers and facilities to reevaluate status quo protocols in favor of science-based treatments that may benefit patients
Keep kids in school and reduce isolation by limiting isolation periods for Floridians to 5 days
And, as you likely know, the CDC has since relaxed its guidelines, with unvaxxed individuals now having the same guidance as vaxxed individuals.
