Fear is a liarFlorida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo, author of Transcend Fear: A Blueprint for Mindful Leadership in Public Health, voices opposition to adding COVID-19 vaccine to CDC’s immunization schedule for children

Dr. Joseph Ladapo is the first state surgeon general to speak out against CDC recommendations.

“A vaccine associated with rapidly declining effectiveness against infection, an evolving safety profile including possible subclinical myocarditis, and no high-quality evidence proving a clinical benefit to healthy children should not be added to the routine vaccine schedule. 

“It is an insult to the scientific process and shows that current leadership at the CDC and other parts of the federal government prioritize politics over common sense. Americans deserve better, more honest leadership in public health.”

In Dr. Ladapo’s book Transcend Fear: A Blueprint for Mindful Leadership in Public Health published on August 23, 2022, he describes his views on public health restrictions, early home treatment, and COVID-19 vaccines, along with how Florida officials made public health decisions that set Florida apart from other states—and nations. Based on this experience, Dr. Ladapo explains how states can make better public health decisions in the future—particularly during a crisis.

Joseph Ladapo, MDPhD is the surgeon general of Florida and professor at University of Florida College of Medicine. He received his MD from Harvard Medical School and a PhD in Health Policy from Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Ladapo worked as an associate professor of general internal medicine and a health policy researcher at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. He lives in Tampa, Florida with his wife and children.

Praise for Transcend Fear

"In two years of interviewing public health officials, Dr. Joe Ladapo was the most impressive I met, and the most decent. I suspect it won't be long before every American knows his name."
—Tucker Carlson

“This gripping biographical narrative lets the world understand the complex reality that has unfolded in the life of Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo, MD, PhD. He stands as an impressive physical and intellectual force yet has been formed and molded into a respectful, careful, and quietly courageous leader in public health. The narrative quickly brings the reader through the life of Ladapo, his family, and Governor Ron DeSantis as characters working to save Floridians and the nation at large from the catastrophic federal response to the pandemic that has unfolded before our very eyes. Ladapo is a wonderful writer and has taken brave steps in disclosure that many public figures could not bring themselves to do in spoken words or print. This book will stand as an important inflection point for Dr. Ladapo and America’s public health community at a time of continued crisis and upheaval in our country. So, sit back and enjoy this wonderful story about one of America's finest heroes in contemporary history.”

—Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH, coauthor of Courage to Face COVID-19: Preventing Hospitalization and Death While Battling the Biopharmaceutical Complex

“I searched the nation for ethical and honorable physicians to tell the American people the real public health truth. By reviewing decades of research prior to Covid and observing real-time scientific data, Dr. Ladapo spoke boldly and accurately. He reminded us that masks are unable to stop the spread of a tiny respiratory virus; he reminded us that early treatment is always superior to negligence; and he reminded us of Public Health 101: locking down healthy people is never going to be an effective—or legal—public health measure. Dr. Ladapo was different because he refused to delegate his personal responsibility to think critically—even in the face of overwhelming pressure to follow the herd.”

—Simone Gold, MD, JD, founder of America’s Frontline Doctors and CEO of GoldCare™Health & Wellness

“Joe Ladapo has been one of very few public voices of reason throughout the Covid pandemic. While other leaders in the field of public health have panicked, forgotten their training, and allowed their thinking to be clouded by fear, he has consistently demanded that we look at the actual evidence, and do a careful weighing of benefits and harms before putting in place massively disruptive public health interventions. With Joe at the center of Florida’s public health decision making, it is not hard to understand why the state has come out of the pandemic looking so good.”

—Sebastian Rushworth, MD, author of Covid: Why Most of What You Know Is Wrong

I have been saying the same thing for the last two years. So many new white coats with the alphabet after their name are achieving celebrity status for speaking out against covid vaccines. As you so rightly point out, no mention of all the other toxic deadly vaccines that have injured our children and often ourselves. I received 7 smallpox vaccines before I turned 22 (yes, this was a “thing” in the 60’s). I feel fortunate to have made it to 75.

There are a small number of honest brilliant doctors who have spoken out over the years regarding toxic childhood vaccines – among them Dr. Andy Wakefield, Dr. Paul Thomas, Dr. Larry Palevsky, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny , Dr. Suzanne Humphries and the late Dr. Tony Bark, They are the real heros who need to be featured in the press and whose life work needs to be emulated.

Robert Malone and Peter McCullough don’t have a clue about the devastation caused by the childhood vaccine schedule and yet they continue to bask in the media limelight because they have spoken out against Covid shots. They need to watch your videos and read your AoA articles, Laura. I like Dr. Ladapo but I fear he is also guilty of the same sin of omission.

True and meaningful "mindful leadership" in health (no such thing as "public health", health is individual) would include vehement opposition to the entirety of the CDC's "immunization" schedule. It would also decry any and all medical mandates, without exception.

Far too many on pedestals at the moment who speak out only about the "Covid" injections. Meanwhile, scores of vaccines, not one of which should be on the market, continue to harm, disable, and kill people of all ages, from fetus to grave. To make matters worse, those already injured or killed by vaccines are denied, ignored, maligned, and forgotten.

Meanwhile, the perpetrators...from the manufacturers, to those who administer the vaccines, to those who approve, recommend, promote, and mandate them...walk free. This should not be.

Thank you Dr. Ladapo! As a Florida resident, I really appreciate your bravery.
