Florida Prepares Special Session to Take on COVID Vaccine Mandates


The fight over COVID vaccine mandates in America is only heating up. This week alone, 19 different states brought a lawsuit against the Biden administration. This lawsuit is over Biden mandating federal contractors to take the COVID vaccine.

The 19 states suing Biden maintain that the president does not have this power. Furthermore, they argue the federal government lacks the legal authority to implement sweeping vaccine mandates in this fashion.

With that in mind, the lawsuits against the Biden administration aren’t the only form of action being taken against COVID vaccine mandates. In Florida, the state is gearing up for a special session to stop these requirements.

What to know about Florida’s forthcoming special session

The Sunshine State’s special session will take place next month on November 15. This gathering will furthermore center around stopping businesses from implementing COVID vaccine mandates.

Previously, Florida banned businesses from mandating their customers take a COVID vaccine in order to get service. However, amid the Biden administration’s demand for businesses to implement these mandates for their workers, states are acting accordingly.

Governor DeSantis has not minced words on this issue. Like other conservatives, DeSantis believes no one should lose their job over these mandates. DeSantis has also noted the very individuals who were lauded nationwide as heroes in 2020 are the ones Democrats want to plunge into poverty if they don’t take a COVID vaccine.

This is not acceptable to the Florida governor; therefore, he’s making moves to prevent it from happening in the state of Florida.

DeSantis vs. Biden on vaccine mandates

The Florida governor’s found himself repeatedly sparring with the 46th president over COVID vaccine mandates. DeSantis maintains he will not step aside as Biden comes after Floridians’ jobs, healthcare decisions, and freedoms.

Biden, meanwhile, has made it clear he wants DeSantis and other opponents against vaccine mandates to get out of the way. However, the Florida governor’s publicly stated that won’t happen.

DeSantis is also of the view that Biden’s vaccine mandate is ultimately illegal and will not withstand legal challenges. Finally, the Florida governor’s said he has a duty to push back against overreach from the federal government.
