On Tuesday during a panel with Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis called on the Florida Supreme Court to gather a grand jury to investigate any and all “wrongdoings” relating to COVID-19 vaccines.

“We will be able to get the data whether they wanna give it or not because in Florida it is against the law to mislead and misrepresent particularly when you’re talking about the efficacy of the drug,” DeSantis said.

“Just recently Florida got 3.2 billion through legal action against those responsible for the opioid crisis and so it’s not like this is something that’s unprecedented,” the Florida governor continued.

“So 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 announced. “We anticipate 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.”

DeSantis indicated that he wants to investigate mRNA vaccine producers as he accused them of withholding key data relating to the vaccine and heart problems.


Check out what Click Orlando reported:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the outer lining of the heart) can happen after COVID-19 vaccination, but are rare. The CDC says those who reported either illness responded well to medicine and rest, recovering after 90 days, according to a study the CDC published in Lancet.

The Food and Drug Administration is currently requiring both Pfizer-BioNtech and Moderna to study the longterm effects of myocarditis after COVID vaccines.

This is the latest statewide grand jury DeSantis has called for to handle issues. He has impaneled a grand jury to investigate school safety procedures and one to investigate illegal immigration rules. Both have called for changes to policies and laws.
