Although the initial response was led by a sense of urgency and crisis management, the Florida State Surgeon General announced on February 15, 2023, he believes it is critical that, as public health professionals, responses are adapted to the present to chart a future guided by data.

As such, the State Surgeon General notified the healthcare sector and public on February 15, 2023, of a substantial increase in Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System reports issued from Florida after the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

To further evaluate this, Surgeon General Dr. Ladap wrote a letter to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, illustrating the risk factors associated with the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines and emphasizing the need for additional transparency.
