Casey DeSantis, Florida’s first lady, published this Friday an explanation by Dr. Joe Ladapo, Surgeon General of the state, in which she reminds that the vaccine against COVID-19 does not prevent its transmission. She highlighted it is not necessary to promote mass vaccination with the message that it will stop the transmission.

“How can you force someone to take a vaccine to stop transmission when that vaccine doesn’t stop transmission,” Ladapo said during a media appearance.

Vaccination would not stop transmission, says scientific journal

An analysis by The Lancet, dated January of this year, revealed that scientific studies show that vaccines against the coronavirus decrease the risks of developing severe disease. However, it details that the evidence makes it clear that it does not stop the transmission of the virus.

“This study showed that the impact of vaccination on community transmission of circulating variants of SARS-CoV-2 appeared to be not significantly different from the impact among unvaccinated people,” The Lancet detailed.

The scientific journal also details that, according to the evidence received and published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is necessary to rethink the policies implemented regarding vaccination.
