(Florida) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has threatened fines for cities and counties that mandate employees must get vaccinated against COVID-19, which has killed nearly 50,000 people in the state.
“If a government agency in the state of Florida forces a vaccine as a condition to employment, that violates Florida law,” DeSantis said in a press conference.
“And you will face a $5,000 fine for every single violation,” he added. “That’s millions and millions of dollars potentially in fines.”
