DeSantis Announces Florida Grand Jury Investigation to Hold Vaccine Manufacturers Accountable

The grand jury will investigate the potentially dangerous and deadly side effects the mRNA injections have had on Floridians.

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced that the State of Florida is impaneling a grand jury to review evidence to hold COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers accountable under Florida law.

“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 the COVID-19 vaccines. We anticipate that we will get approval for that,” Governor DeSantis stated at a roundtable conference with medical professionals and vaccine injured citizens.

Speaking alongside Florida’s Surgeon General, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, the governor said the grand jury will investigate the potentially dangerous and deadly side effects of the mRNA injections to hold the manufacturers accountable.

Following the announcement, the governor and surgeon general held a special live roundtable event with leading healthcare practitioners and scientists. The roundtable also included very emotional testimony from vaccine-injured men and women.

DeSantis and Ladapo were joined by a panel of experts, including: Jay Bhattacharya, Professor of Medicine at Stanford University; Tracy Høeg, an epidemiologist and clinical researcher; Dr. Joseph Fraiman, Emergency Medicine Physician in New Orleans; Steve Templeton, Associate Professor of Microbiology & Immunology at Indiana University; Bret Weinstein, a public intellectual and former professor of evolutionary biology; Christine Stabell Benn, Professor in Global Health at the University of Southern Denmark and Martin Kulldorff, a biostatistician, epidemiologist and former professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.


At the roundtable, Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo announced that the state of Florida will launch a surveillance investigation to uncover details related to sudden deaths associated with the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.

“We will answer this question. It is a question that I’m sure keeps the CEOs of Pfizer and Moderna up late at night, hoping no one ever looks,” said Ladapo. “We’re going to look here in Florida.”

The new Florida program will study deaths that occurred involving myocarditis within a few weeks of being vaccinated for COVID-19. The state plans to form a partnership with the University of Florida on research in collaboration with medical examiners across the state.


The governor and the surgeon general also announced that Florida will create a new Public Health Integrity committee that will provide Floridians, and other Americans, with public health recommendations.

“We’re bringing common sense back to public health recommendations,” said Ladapo. “We will be issuing recommendations that make sense and are scientifically valid.”
