(SNews) – Florida’s top health official, Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo, has issued a warning to the public over “red flags” about the safety of Covid “booster” shots.
Governor Ron DeSantis‘s hand-picked surgeon general warned against getting the new booster that is expected to receive approval for public use from Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration in the coming days.
Ladapo issued an alert during a press conference, saying there is no evidence to support getting the shot.
He continued by revealing that his team has uncovered major “red flags” regarding the safety of the mRNA injections.
The updated shots target a new variant, an Omicron subvariant named XBB.1.5.
They are due to be approved by Biden’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The shots are currently awaiting FDA approval on standards for safety, effectiveness, and quality.
Once they receive the sign-off from Biden’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the “boosters” could be rolled out for public use as early as Tuesday.
However, Ladapo warned during his press briefing that the FDA and CDC have become weaponized and no longer have the public’s safety in mind.
“Listen inside to what makes sense, what feels right, you know, what feels like truth,” said Lapado, offering his advice on receiving the shots.
“We all know it when we feel it inside.”
Lapado went on to cite recent global studies showing people who had the “boosters” were more likely to catch Covid and other viruses.
As Slay News reported, a bombshell study found that those who have received mRNA injections are more likely to catch Covid than someone who is unvaccinated.
DeSantis joined Lapado at the event to support the top health official’s warning about the “boosters.”
The governor slammed federal regulators at the FDA and CDC as corrupt, claiming they “have basically become an arm of Big Pharma.”
Approval of the updated booster shots is expected within days.
Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax have all manufactured new versions of the shots to roll out to the public.
Similar to how flu shots are updated each year, the FDA gave COVID-19 vaccine makers a new recipe, targeting variants that are emerging in the run-up to the critical 2024 election.
The shots the FDA is about to approve target the XBB.1.5 variant.
However, the XBB.1.5 variant has faded away in recent months.
CDC estimates show XBB.1.5 is responsible for about 3 percent of current cases.
The federal agency says several other newer Omicron variants dominate, led by the 2024 election variant, EG.5, at about 20 percent.
But despite warnings of new variants for a pandemic that is long over, no increase in deaths has been recorded from the virus.
A recent report noted that most cases of new variants that are recorded have been discovered by “incidental” detection.
This means the patients visited a hospital for a different reason, unrelated to Covid, and were unaware they had the virus until they were tested.
During Ladapo’s press event, DeSantis vowed that Florida will not be enforcing lockdowns, closing schools, or mandating mask-wearing and vaccines because of the recent uptick in cases.
“People are lurching toward this insanity again,” DeSantis said.
“As we see these things being orchestrated … there needs to be pushback.”
