Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said on April 16 that the federal government’s response to the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine is a “big mistake”, because this has made confidence. Public news on vaccines has declined.
“We are not being helped by this problem because of the behavior of some of these public health workers, especially in the federal government. I mean, the way they handled J&J was a big mistake, ” he said in a press conference.
Republican Party member DeSantis said the Biden administration’s move had reduced public confidence in the vaccine.
“I don’t know what information they have, but if you’re going to do it, then you can do it in a way that doesn’t make a lot of people lose faith,” he said. “If you look at how people see J&J right now, you will see that not many people are commenting positively on it.”
He also criticized the Biden administration for its confusing messages about wearing masks.
“I also think it’s a problem when you tell people to get vaccinated, but people who have been vaccinated for months wear two masks… I also can’t say if there is a vaccine. effective or not, but why do you need to wear 2 masks? ” he said. “It doesn’t make any sense. So, I think this message is awful. “
Mr. Ron DeSantis is the governor considered by many to be a potential presidential candidate by 2024.
“I think the vaccine problem could be better handled,” he said.
