The Senate’s Health Policy Committee met yesterday voted to move the appointment of Florida’s new surgeon general nominee Dr. Joseph Ladapo forward.
But, Plantation Democrat Lauren Book was upset that Ladapo refused to give a “yes or no” answer when asked if vaccines are effective in preventing COVID infection.
After being asked the same question multiple times, Dr. Ladapo said vaccines “prevent serious infection but are not effective in the long term.”
So basically Dr. Ladapo was able to say that COVID vaccines prevent hospitalizations not infection.
Book and the other three Democrats on the committee walked out of the hearing and abstained from voting.
What the full exchange here.
