(SNews) – Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is petitioning the state’s Supreme Court to launch a grand jury investigation into Big Pharma.
Gov. DeSantis announced Tuesday that he wants to impanel a grand jury to investigate Pfizer and Moderna over their COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.
DeSantis made the announcement Tuesday morning during a “COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Accountability Roundtable.”
The event also featured Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo and other leading experts such as Dr. Jay Bhattacharya and Dr. Martin Kulldorff.
The roundtable also included testimonials from people who said they experienced severe adverse effects after receiving mRNA Covid shots.
“In Florida, it is against the law to mislead and misrepresent, particularly when you’re talking about the efficacy of a drug,” DeSantis said.
“So, today, I’m announcing a petition to the Supreme Court of Florida to impanel a statewide grand jury to investigate any wrongdoing with respect to the COVID-19 vaccines.”

DeSantis also announced the formation of a Public Health Integrity Committee.
The new committee will include Kulldorff, Bhattacharya, Bret Weinstein, and other experts.
While explaining why he decided to form the new body, DeSantis cited a lack of trust in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The governor added that he expects the grand jury petition to be approved.
He said that it will most likely be impaneled in the Tampa Bay area.
He is aiming to bring “legal accountability” to those who “committed misconduct.”
DeSantis claimed the move is not unprecedented.
He cited legal actions taken by states against actors involved in the opioid crisis.
A number of state and local governments have reached settlements in recent years following lawsuits against opioid manufacturers and distributors that played a role in the opioid overdose epidemic.
The panelists and guest speakers present at the roundtable mentioned a number of adverse effects after vaccination.
They cited flu-like symptoms and stroke-like symptoms, achiness, debilitating pain, and other side effects they believe to have been the result of mRNA vaccines.
Some of the experts said it wasn’t possible to know the risk-benefit assessment of the vaccines at the time they were released to the public.
Several speakers also criticized Pfizer and Moderna for an alleged lack of transparency.
