(SNews) – The state of Florida has instructed doctors to warn their patients that Covid shots may cause them to suffer a heart attack or other adverse effects.
Florida issued the new guidance for medical professionals this week amid mounting concerns over the negative side effects of the mRNA vaccines.
The new guidance comes as Florida has just raised the alarm over a staggering 1,700 percent increase in reports of adverse events from vaccines since the Covid jab was rolled out, as Slay News reported.
The Florida Department of Health announced that the massive spike was reported despite just a 400% increase in vaccine administration over the same period.
The department has issued a health alert over the alarming data while calling for “unbiased research” into the shots.
The data, gathered by the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), also shows a disturbing 4,400 percent increase in reports of “life-threatening conditions” for the same period.
Florida surgeon general Joseph Ladapo responded to the report by blasting the federal government’s assertion that the shots are “safe and effective.”
“Florida saw a 1,700% increase in adverse event reports after COVID-19 vaccinations,” Ladapo tweeted in response to the health alert.
“Does that sound safe and effective? I didn’t think so either.
“That’s why we released this health alert,” he revealed.
“Just because ‘correlation ≠ causation’ doesn’t mean we should abandon common sense.”

The health department’s report cites three separate studies showing the potential side effects caused by the jab.
In 2021, 41,473 vaccine-related injuries were reported in Florida, a massive increase from the 2,466 a year earlier, according to The Daily Mail.
VAERS data is self-reported, and cases submitted to the system do not need to be verified by a physician.
Still, though, it allows regulators to be alerted to potential negative trends associated with available vaccines.
The Florida Health also cites an American study published in September that found one in every 550 recipients of the Covid vaccine suffered an adverse event.
“Which is much higher than other vaccines,” the release says.
The study focused on clinical trials held for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to initially earn Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in late-2020
Across all the trials gathered for the study – which included tens of thousands of patients – 52 Pfizer vaccine recipients and 87 who got the Moderna shot had a significant adverse reaction.
This is compared to 33 and 64, respectively, among people who did not receive the shot, indicating that the existing risk is still relatively small.
This data was considered by the FDA and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) before it issued emergency use authorization – and eventually full approval – for the shots in recent years.
Florida Health also cites a 2022 study by Israeli researchers, which found a 25 percent increase in cardiac events in the Middle-Eastern nation in the months following the shot’s rollout.
Researchers note that it is unclear whether any of these events had any link to the vaccine.
“While not establishing causal relationships, the findings raise concerns regarding vaccine-induced undetected severe cardiovascular side-effects and underscore the already established causal relationship between vaccines and myocarditis, a frequent cause of unexpected cardiac arrest in young individuals,” researchers wrote.

A Norwegian study cited by the Florida health department showed that the AstraZeneca vaccine was linked to blood clotting in the brain and low blood platelet counts – both of which are life-threatening.
The vaccine is not available in America, though, and could not be responsible for the uptick in VAERS reports in 2021.
The shots do not come without some relatively small risks, though.
Early in 2021, the CDC warned that young males who had received the mRNA vaccines – either the Pfizer or Moderna shot were at an increased risk of suffering heart inflammation.
The agency warned that myocarditis was appearing more frequently in males 16 and older within seven days of receiving the shot.
