Report: 75 Doctors Stage ‘Walkout’ Over Unvaccinated Patients; DeSantis Team: It Didn’t Happen

Doctors at a South Florida hospital allegedly staged a walkout to protest an apparent surge in patients who are unvaccinated against COVID-19.

However, according to a spokeswoman of Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida (R), there was no “walkout,” as first reported by MSNBC.

“It didn’t happen,” spokeswoman Christina Pushaw said via Twitter. “They went outside for a few minutes to call on people to get vaccinated. South Florida has a very high vax rate (by the way), and none of the hospitals are ‘overflowing,’ but most of the patients in hospitals are unvaccinated. The doctors didn’t deny treatment to anyone.”

In a statement to The Daily Wire, Pushaw reiterated the same.

“South Florida has a very high vaccination rate, and hospitals do have the capacity to treat patients,” she said. “These doctors went outside for a few minutes while off duty early in the morning, not to protest or ‘go on strike’ — but to urge people to get vaccinated to avoid hospitalization.” – READ MORE
