Florida (LifeSiteNews) — A Florida pediatrician was ousted from her position on a children’s health board after she criticized the Sunshine State for its COVID jab policy for kids five and under. Medical freedom advocates have praised Florida for its approach to the mRNA shots for babies and toddlers, which is more cautious than other states’ approaches and based off of a risk-benefit analysis rather than blind obedience to power or political pressure.
Florida’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis informed Lisa Gwynn, M.D., on June 29 that she had been removed from her position on the board of Florida Healthy Kids Corporation, a public insurance provider for children.
UPDATE: The protests are spreading

Protests led by thousands of farmers have broken out across the Netherlands, and they're now spreading to Italy, Germany and Poland - this is a fightback against not just environmental regulations and the resulting inflation, but also the elites' Great Reset agenda.
While the demonstrations themselves have been overwhelmingly free from violence on the affected farmers' part, the response to them has been anything but: Earlier this week, Dutch police opened fire on a 16-year-old tractor driver during a protest in Heerenveen.
While -- thank God -- this unfortunate incident did not result in any deaths or injuries, a formal investigation is still forthcoming, and farmers and concerned citizens now know, without question, what measures could be pursued in order to silence opposition to backers of the international Great Reset, which could spell doom for the livelihood of farmers everywhere.
That's why we're asking you to SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of farmers across world against intrusive, overreaching policies of globalist organizations and political leaders who seek to prioritize their own extreme environmental ideology over the ability for everyday farmers to earn a living and provide for their families and communities.
HAPPENING NOW: Farmers who learned from Canadian Freedom Protesters are currently blockading the Netherlands/Germany border with tractors to protest the WEF climate change policies of their government. pic.twitter.com/I7UJTusAZT— Keean Bexte 🇳🇱 (@TheRealKeean) June 30, 2022
Of course, these kinds of extreme environmental policies are not only a threat to the livelihoods of farmers in the Netherlands, or just the nations that comprise the European Union, for that matter: These regulations most certainly can (and inevitably will) make their way to every corner of our world, including countries like YOURS.
In the Netherlands, specifically, lawmakers recently approved legislative proposals to significantly decrease greenhouse emissions by the end of the decade, most notably ammonia and nitrogen oxide, which are common in farming.
This plan, as championed by Christianne van der Wal, the Dutch Minister for Nature and Nitrogen Policy since January, seeks to exceed the globalist EU's agreement among Member States to reduce greenhouse emissions as a means to combat climate change by at least 40% by the year 2030, replacing the desired percentage with an even loftier 55%.
As a result, it would seem almost inevitable that thousands of farms could find themselves in jeopardy within the coming years, but Dutch farmers have no plans to stand down; in fact, this embrace of EU and World Economic Forum (WEF)-style environmental demands is the primary force behind the ongoing protests by as many as 40,000 farmers, who, in response, have taken their tractors to highways across the Netherlands, making an unmistakable statement of resistance reminiscent of that of the Canadian Freedom Convoy truckers in order to protect their livelihoods.
Similar protests have also broken among farmers in Italy, as you can see here:

Such policies are a clear tenet of the Great Reset, pushed by globalist entities around the world like the World Economic Forum. Look no further than the WEF's own "Net Zero Challenge," which seeks to coerce participants into cutting all greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050, and will inevitably threaten countless jobs and livelihoods in the process.
Let there be no doubt: these extreme environmental policies and transgressions against working people cannot be expected to stop any time soon.
That's why we must take this opportunity to make our voices heard -- whether you're a farmer, yourself; work in an industry that would be negatively affected by such policies; or simply support the hardworking men and women in your country and others who wish to maintain the freedom to provide for their families without excessive government and globalist interference.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of Dutch farmers, and farmers and workers across the world, whose livelihoods can and eventually will be harmed by the extreme environmental demands of globalist entities like the EU and WEF seeking to implement the Great Reset.

Patronis’s letter, which was obtained by MedPage Today, explained that the decision to axe Gwynn was made after she “went on to make some very political statements that do not reflect the CFO’s point of view,” and she went “so far as to say that the state [was] ‘obstruct[ing] access to vaccines.”
Gwynn is president of the Florida chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, which issued a statement on June 17 urging Florida officials to order COVID shots for kids five and under after Florida’s Department of Health (DOH) announced that it would not participate in the rollout of COVID mRNA jabs for that age group.
Although Florida is the only state that has not ordered COVID mRNA shots for this age group, the shots are still widely available in the state.
Gov. Ron DeSantis afterwards confirmed that Florida is “not going to have any programs where we’re trying to jab six-month-old babies with mRNA. That’s just the reality.”
The mRNA jabs for babies and toddlers, which have been linked to a number of severe side effects including myocarditis and death, can still easily be ordered by any pediatrician, however.
Gwynn is quoted in the statement saying, “The state’s decision to obstruct access to COVID-19 vaccines is anti-science, an affront to parental rights, and an intrusion into the relationship between doctors, patients, and the families they serve.”
According to the Tampa Bay Times, Gwynn “denied using the term ‘obstruct.’”
She has framed her removal as prompted by her support of children’s “equitable access” to the mRNA jabs. Gwynn announced on Twitter, “On the same day that we began administering COVID-19 vaccine to infants and children under 5, I was removed from the Florida Healthy Kids Board for advocating for equitable access for the underserved and for pediatricians. Disappointing.”
A spokesperson for DeSantis sought to clarify the reason for Gwynn’s removal in a statement, explaining, “A board member making public, false accusations about state policy runs the risk of jeopardizing the constructive working relationship between Florida Healthy Kids and the board and state agencies they work closely with, including [the Florida department of Health] and the [Agency for Health Care Administration],” WSVN 7 News Miami reported.
DeSantis has noted that despite the state’s refusal to distribute COVID jabs for children five and under, medical practitioners can and have always been able to order the mRNA shots for patients in Florida.
He added that the state government doesn’t have the authority to prohibit the jabs for children. However, he cautioned that those interested in getting the injections for their young children should explore the data used to authorize the shots, which he called “the weakest possible data that you could possibly see.”
Gwynn explained to MedPage Today that she takes issue with the fact that Florida’s local health departments do not carry the mRNA shots for young children, despite the widespread availability of the COVID shot for this age group at pharmacies, community health centers, and children’s hospitals.
She added that families without health coverage often seek out local health departments for “vaccination” of their children, arguing that such children “now cannot access the vaccine. I have a real problem with that,” reported MedPage Today.
In March, Florida’s DeSantis-appointed Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo had announced the Sunshine State would officially advise against giving experimental COVID-19 shots to healthy children, pushing back against advice from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
On Thursday DeSantis backed up the DOH’s decision not to stock up on COVID drugs for little children, arguing that “the risks outweigh the benefits” and that parents who are concerned about their kids contracting the coronavirus “are really frightened … because of media hysteria, it’s because of a lot of misinformation.”
The push to vaccinate young children comes despite the fact that children face extremely low risk from COVID-19. This combined with the thousands of reports of serious adverse events and deaths after the jabs has led numerous experts to criticize the push to inject children with the experimental shots.
In an October article for the Brownstone Institute, Dr. Paul Elias Alexander, who served in the Department of Health and Human Services during the COVID-19 pandemic under the Trump administration, called the push to vaccinate young children “dangerous” and “absolutely reckless.”
