DeSantis urges public to get vaccinated: These shots are 'saving lives'

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is urging Floridians to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, saying that the shots are “saving lives.”

In a press conference on Wednesday, DeSantis told reporters that 95% of the people being admitted to hospitals in the state due to COVID-19 complications haven’t been vaccinated at all, implying that “vaccines are saving lives,” especially with regard to nursing homes.

“If you look at the people that are being admitted to hospitals …. over 95% of them are either not fully vaccinated or not vaccinated at all,” DeSantis said. “These vaccines are saving lives. They are reducing mortality.”

You’re a liar. Show me a quote of one of them saying they don’t want everyone vaccinated. Hannity just said the other night on his show that he thinks everyone should get vaccinated, but believes in the right for people to choose. Lefty lies, all the time lefty lies.

You're missing the point. I want everyone to be healthy and happy, but it's not my business to force anyone to eat right and exercise in the public square every morning, or have them undergo untested psychological therapy if they're feeling depressed.

It's a matter of not infringing on liberties, especially when it comes to having experimental biological agents put in your body.

If the vaccine and mask are worth a fuck, it should be enough for you to have them. I'm out.

2nd link... Saying it is experimental is not a lie. Also, this...

Ingraham responded to Durbin's comments during her show The Ingraham Angle on Monday night, calling the senator a "windbag" and claiming that "none of this is about the vaccine. This is all about suppressing speech ahead of next year's midterms."

The host also called Durbin a "fossil," and claimed that the campaign to get the U.S. vaccinated is an "anti-democratic, anti-freedom" push of an "experimental drug on Americans against their will — threatening them, threatening to deprive them of basic liberties, if they don't comply."

She's not wrong. She's also an entertainer.

1st link... Tucker is talking about blacks getting vaccines before whites because they were black. NOTHING at all saying he's against vaccines.

Neither one of those said what you suggested they did.

Keep looking.

I swear, if we could put a lot of what you say on t-shirts, the world would be a better place. So much common sense.

He posted a couple of links. Neither supported his claim.

Sorry, but I don’t see anyone saying that not everyone should get vaccinated.

The good news is that in the last couple of days there has been much less skepticism about the effectiveness and safety of COVID vaccines on Fox News.
Yay!

I'm completely happy with what I posted. The topic under discussion is whether Fox News has gone as far as Governor DeSantis did and encourage everyone to get vaccinated. I say that Sean Hannity has gone that far but Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson are still vaccine skeptics.
I am happy that there seems to be a more pro-vaccine stance at Fox News over the last few days.
