Ladapo, who has extended criticized vaccination requirements for adults, said Tuesday he would not assist vaccinating younger children from the coronavirus.
“From what I have viewed, there is just inadequate information to notify benefits and threat in small children. I assume that’s extremely unequivocal,” Ladapo instructed reporters in Tallahassee.
The surgeon general, who also is secretary of the condition Department of Health, explained his viewpoint on vaccinating infants and younger children is “reliable” with the department’s other assistance on vaccines.
“We hope to have very good data that the positive aspects outweigh the dangers of any therapies or treatment plans just before we endorse those therapies or treatment options to Floridians.
