Thanks in large part to the leadership of Ron DeSantis, Florida has become an epicenter for COVID-19. Not only does the state have a high death and infection rate, misinformation also runs rampant.
The spread of false information is clear in the story of a Miami private school. The school is forcing children to get vaccinated to quarantine for 30 days. The reason? The school believes the vaxxed students could spread serious infection to non-vaxxed students.
Parents of students from the Centner Academy received a letter which read, “if you are considering the vaccine for your Centner Academy student(s), we ask that you hold off until the Summer when there will be time for the potential transmission or shedding onto others to decrease.”
The letter continued, “Because of the potential impact on other students and our school community, vaccinated students will need to stay at home for 30 days post-vaccination for each dose and booster they receive and may return to school after 30 days as long as the student is healthy and symptom-free.”
When asked for comment by 7 News Miami, infectious Disease expert Aileen Marty said, “What happens 30 days after they get vaccinated? What kind of nonsense is this? Where did they get that? There’s nothing in the recommendations to that… they made that up. That’s science fiction, not even science fiction because it’s pure fiction.”
