The Facts

  • The Florida Dept. of Health suspended a medical director on Tuesday after he sent an email encouraging staff to get vaccinated.

  • Dr. Raul Pino expressed concern that fewer than 50% of the dept. staff members had received two COVID shots.

The Spin

Left narrative

Pino was just doing his job. Vaccination provides the best protection against the virus. DeSantis' anti-mandate scaremongering risks the lives of Floridians.

Right narrative

Pino's email may have violated state law - his suspension reflects Florida's committment to protecting the constitutional right to make one's own medical decisions.
