Florida Surgeon General Ladapo Goes OFF on Upcoming mRNA Vaccines, Says 'No Evidence' for Them

Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo lit into the new and allegedly improved mRNA COVID vaccinations during a press conference last week, saying they are a potential safety risk and that not enough clinical studies have been done to prove their efficacy.


“There’s essentially no evidence for it,” Ladapo said at a “Mandate Freedom” press conference in Jacksonville.

“These new RNA COVID-19 vaccines include the fact that they actually cause cardiac injury in many people … call it subclinical myocarditis, its clinical significance is really unknown.”


There’s a new vaccine that’s coming around the corner, a new mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. And there's there's essentially no evidence for it. There's been no clinical trial done in human beings showing that it benefits people. There's been no clinical trial showing that it is a safe product for people.

And not only that, but then there are a lot of red flags. So something that you don't hear much about, but we'll be talking more about is that there are multiple studies now from around the world. Brazil, I think, Australia, [the] United States, that show that over time these vaccines, these mRNA COVID-19 products actually increase your chances of contracting COVID-19.

That's you know, that's not normal. 

Ladapo encouraged people to go with their instincts and also praised Governor Ron DeSantis, who was in attendance. 

…while the US Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization and most nations around the world tout mRNA-style COVID-19 vaccines as safe and effective, Ladapo dismissed supporters of vaccines and encouraged people who don’t want to get vaccinated to go with their gut.

Lapado [sic—can't they even spell his name right?] also applauded the governor for standing against experts with “PhDs and MDs” who pushed for social distancing, masking and vaccinations despite his nonexistent background in the medical realm. [Not sure if they're referring to Ladopo or DeSantis, but Ladopo has extensive medical expertise, detailed later in this article.]

“Remember that experience of hearing these very educated people telling you what you should think but then listening inside to what makes sense, right? What feels right. You know what feels like truth,” Lapado [sic, again] said.

Ladapo is no stranger to taking controversial positions that are at odds with the media and governmental public health bodies. Here’s a compendium of him speaking out (FYI, he can be pretty funny):

Of course, many in the scientific community strongly disagree with Ladapo and DeSantis and accuse them of misrepresenting the facts. However, if there's one thing we've learned during the pandemic, it's that the "facts" we are told to believe don't always turn out to be all that factual

Ladapo is often painted as a wacko tin-foil hat conspiracy theorist in the lamestream press, but it's hardly like he came out of Joe's College in East Nowhere State—in fact, his resume is pretty darn impressive:

Dr. Ladapo graduated from Wake Forest University and received his medical degree from Harvard and PhD in Health Policy from Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. He completed his clinical training in internal medicine at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he received the Harvard Medical School Class of 2012 Resident Teaching Award and the Daniel E. Ford Award in Health Services and Outcomes Research from John Hopkins University.

Prior to serving as DeSantis' hand-picked surgeon general, Ladapo was a tenured Associate Professor at David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California. He must have been saying all the "right things" back then if he managed to get tenure there. All I know is I sure wish we'd had a voice like his here in California back in the dark days of COVID mania when a seemingly monolithic viewpoint dominated the airspace. 

He may be right, and there's a lot of evidence to suggest that he is—but he also could be wrong. Then again, Joe Biden, Anthony Fauci, and former CDC Director Rochelle Walensky have turned out to be spectacularly incorrect more times than I can count, and yet they are never held accountable. "You're not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations," Biden said in July 2021. (Of course, he later got COVID despite multiple boosters.) Where are the disinformation police

In any case, it does not appear that Ladapo is going to stop speaking his mind any time soon. And that's a good thing. At some point, Democrats began to believe that "the science™" means not questioning what you're told when the very essence of science is questioning everything that you're told and subjecting it to experiments and proofs. Just ask Galileo Galilei
