Letter From Rep. Keith Fitzgerald’s Office re: FL Public Health Statutes:

Received Oct. 1, 2009


From WHERE is Rep. Fitzgerald deriving these questions?

They are NOT contained in 381.00315 (1) (b) 4.

Nor 381.0015

Nor 381.0025, in which you become a 2nd-degree misdemeanor offender for NOT
agreeing to testing, examining, treating, quarantine or vaccination.

We are now in a ‘WHO’ Pandemic, Level 6 - the highest level of human to human
contact present in 3 or more countries.  This status is mandating vaccines
for school-age children in New Jersey and all healthcare workers in New

We are not raising the balloon because this is "much adoo about nothing."

We will be asking for citations for A through E in writing - or verbal clarification so
we can make notes.
END COMMENT from Sarasota for Vaccination Choice]


Dear Mr. Boehk:
As a follow-up to the meeting you and Mr. Pepper held with Representative Fitzgerald had on Tuesday of this week, I am providing below the response I received from the Florida Department of Health yesterday in regard to the concern of mandatory vaccinations after having forwarded your email of the 28th with the several links:
“There are no forced vaccinations.  All an individual would need to do is not sign the consent form or just refuse the vaccination.  Individuals will not be forced to be vaccinated or quarantined against their will.

Something like that could occur in only the most extreme conditions when other people's lives are endangered (example: SARS, Smallpox, Ebola).
Note the conditions under which this authority can be used:
A.    The person must have a communicable disease or unsafe condition
that is a threat to their neighbors;
B.    The person was counseled as to how to protect their neighbors;
C.    The person expresses an intent (in word or deed) to expose their
neighbors to the threat;
D.    All other reasonable means to address the person's refusal have
been exhausted; and
E.    No less restrictive solution exists.
FYI - H1/N1 is not part of that group
As far as pregnant women are concerned it would be best to consult their personal physician.  This way it can be dealt with on an individual case basis.”
I hope that this response will allay your concerns on the matter.
