Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said on Thursday that requiring people to "show some type of proof of vaccination" is a "terrible idea" and that Florida is "definitely not going to require anything from the state's perspective."

"That is totally off the table," DeSantis said. "If I have businesses that want to do that in Florida, I think that's more than just a private decision; I think that impacts our society. I think that impacts people, particularly disadvantaged people, in a way that would really be negative for our state...

But to require somebody to show some type of proof of vaccination, I think is completely unacceptable. And it's not something that we're going to support here in any way in Florida."
