Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo personally altered a state-driven study about COVID-19 vaccines last year to suggest that some doses pose a significantly higher health risk for young men than had been established by the broader medical community, according to a newly obtained document, Politico reports. Ladapo’s changes, released as part of a public records request, presented the risks of cardiac death to be more severe than in previous versions of the study. He later used the final document in October to bolster disputed claims that Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines were dangerous to young men.
