STATEMENT: County Administrator Vincent Long on Governor Ron DeSantis' Vaccine Requirement Comments

Unfortunately, and despite the tireless efforts of public health professionals, political rhetoric continues to dangerously exacerbate the fear and confusion about vaccinations. In a public health emergency, clarity of information remains critical.  This is why it is necessary that I clarify that vaccinations as a condition of employment in Leon County is legal and will remain in effect.  We will continue to act responsibly to ensure our operational readiness to respond to the needs of our community and to keep our employees safe.  

Vincent S. Long

Leon County Administrator
