TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — Reports of life-threatening conditions in Florida shot up by 4,400 percent since the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine, Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo told the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in a letter on Wednesday.

“We have never seen this type of response following previous mass vaccination efforts pushed by the federal government. Even the H1N1 vaccine did not trigger this sort of response. In Florida alone, we saw a 1,700% increase in reports after the release of the COVID-19 vaccine, compared to an increase of 400% in vaccine administration for the same period. The reporting of life- threatening conditions increased 4,400%,” Ladapo stated.

The surgeon general says that the state will keep watching for adverse effects of the vaccine and other medications.

“I request that your agencies promote transparency in health care professionals to accurately communicate the risks these vaccines pose. I request that you work to protect the rights and liberties that we are endowed with, not restrict, and diminish them,” Ladapo wrote to the regulator.
