Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an executive order on Friday banning state agencies from issuing “vaccine passports.”
Local businesses also can’t require the vaccine passports, according to the executive order.
On Monday, DeSantis said he opposed the idea as President Joe Biden reportedly pushes for vaccine documentation.
