The Tampa Bay Times reports:
Gov. Ron DeSantis said Florida will fine local governments $5,000 for each employee who is required to be vaccinated, threatening some cities and counties with millions of dollars in penalties for adopting strict vaccine “mandates.”
In Gainesville, more than 200 employees, including police and firefighters, have sued the city. Some of those employees said Monday that they were fighting the requirement on principle. They also expressed skepticism over the safety of the vaccines, while DeSantis stood next to them.
“The vaccine changes your RNA, so for me, that’s a problem,” said Darris Friend, who said he’s about a year and a half away from retirement after 22 years with the city. “It’s about our freedom and liberty. It’s not about the vaccine.”
