(The Center Square) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Tuesday new actions designed to hold the federal government and pharmaceutical companies accountable for decisions related to COVID-19 vaccines.

DeSantis will establish the Public Health Integrity Committee, overseen by the state’s surgeon general, to assess federal public health recommendations and guidance. The governor also petitioned the Florida Supreme Court to impanel a statewide grand jury to “investigate crimes and wrongdoing committed against Floridians related to the COVID-19 vaccine,” according to the announcement. Further, the governor plans to look into the sudden deaths of people who got a COVID-19 vaccine in Florida, based on autopsy results. The state will collaborate with the University of Florida to compare research with studies done in other countries.

“With these new actions, we will shed light on the forces that have obscured truthful communication about the COVID-19 vaccines,” Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo said in a statement.

Ladapo will oversee the Public Health Integrity Committee, which will assess federal decisions, recommendations, and guidance related to public health and health care.

“This has been a tremendously difficult time for everybody, but we are near the tail end of it and it is time to start taking stock of what went wrong and make reforms so this doesn’t happen again,” committee member Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, professor of health policy at Stanford University Medical School, said in a statement.

DeSantis filed a petition asking the state’s Supreme Court to put together a statewide grand jury to investigate issues around COVID-19 vaccines. The petition said that federal agencies, medical experts and others “created an expectation that receiving a COVID-19 vaccine is an ethical or civic duty and that choosing not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 is selfish and harmful to others.”

“It is impossible to imagine that so many influential individuals came to this view on their own,” according to the petition. “Rather, it is likely that individuals and companies with an incentive to do so created these perceptions for financial gain.”

I certainly hope they will expose all the lies failures and corruption Trump and the Trump administration participated in. We know our country had much higher death rate of other civilized countries during Trumps reign.

Is there no end to this clown pandering to the worst of his base? Oh, I forgot. There is no “worst of his base.” They’re all incorrigible.

That’s right, we’re all deplorables. But at least we all THINK FOR OURSELVES. Your side oughta ask your grandparents how it’s done, and try it sometimes.

Great idea; investigate in the middle of a COVID, flu, RSV “Tripledemic”. Let’s also take a look at that spike last year around this time in Florida when there were upwards of 400,000 COVID-19 cases reported to the CDC in one week, alone.

All the woke liberals now trying to deflect what has happened now that someone has the balls to call them out. Liberals follow the “science”…..spelled “money”. Everyone suffered due to the fraud by Big Pharma, MSM, the CDC, WHO and the leftist politicians enacted on the population.

Conservatives jumped in the Clown Car driven by Trump when they thought it was going to the promised land. Maybe they thought he could make them all “billionaires”. Now some are FINALLY realizing the Clown Car is going off a cliff and want to jump out and hide in the bushes until the NEXT Clown Car comes driven by another Clown-“Ron-Deport-Them-Desantis”. Seems to me he is looking for another way to garner National attention by blaming the vaccine and hope people will overlook the many lives lost in Florida due to his Covid response, and what I think is the malpractice of his quack Surgeon General.
