Anti-Vax Activists Are Quietly Bending State Politics To Their Will: Vice News

Image
  South Carolina State Representative Bill Chumley was feeling vindicated. His many suspicions about COVID-19 vaccines, he told VICE News, appeared to have been justified.  “I called my doctor early this morning,” Chumley said, after the news broke that the FDA has paused use of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine over reports of six patients developing rare and serious blood clots two weeks after getting the vaccine. “His comment was that he’s more convinced than ever.” So is Chumley. That’s why, on March 2, he was one of the sponsors of South Carolina’s “Vaccine Bill of Rights,” a resolution stuffed with misinformation and conspiratorial language based on model legislation from a medical fringe group that’s become notorious in recent months.  Legislators in at least five states, VICE News has found, have introduced a so-called “Vaccine Bill of Rights.” The text of these bills is strikingly similar for a reason: They’re all based on a document released in January by a group called America

Exclusive: Biggs offers bill banning federal vaccine passports: The Hill

Image
  House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) on Thursday introduced a bill that would bar federal government agencies from issuing or requiring "vaccine passports," according to a copy of the legislation obtained first by The Hill. The bill, titled the "No Vaccine Passports Act," would stipulate that federal agencies could not issue standardized documentation showing an individual has gotten a COVID-19 vaccine nor could they require proof of a COVID-19 vaccine to access federal grounds. "Vaccine passports will not help our nation recover from COVID-19; instead, they will simply impose more Big Brother surveillance on our society," Biggs said in a statement to The Hill. Biggs cited Florida Gov.  Ron DeSantis 's  move last week  to sign an executive order outlawing vaccine passports, calling him "an early leader" on the subject and saying his legislation would build off that order. The bill has 18 co-sponsors, most of which are members

  Thats Right States like Texas and Florida got the Vaccine Passport Conspiracy from Del Bigtree.  https://abc7.com/politics/texas-governor-bans-vaccine-passport-requirement-in-state/10491161/ AUSTIN, Texas -- Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order Tuesday morning prohibiting state agencies or political subdivisions in Texas from creating a "vaccine passport" requirement. Conversation has grown around  vaccine passports recently as an option that can be used for travel or even eating out . They are typically described as an app with a code that verifies if someone has been vaccinated or recently tested negative for COVID-19. They're already in use in Israel, and in development in parts of Europe. But Abbott shut that down as an option in the Lone Star State with Executive Order No. GA - 35 also prohibiting "organizations receiving public funds from requiring consumers to provide documentation of vaccine status in order to receive any service or enter any place.&q

Florida governor issues order banning ‘vaccine passports’ AP News

Image
  TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an executive order Friday banning businesses from requiring customers to show proof they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to get service. The Republican governor had previously announced his intent to issue an order banning so-called "vaccine passports." His action also barred any government agency in Florida from issuing such documentation for the purpose of providing proof of vaccinations. In his executive order, DeSantis asserts that "vaccination passports reduce individual freedom and will harm patient privacy." Effective immediately, Florida businesses are barred from requiring patrons to provide documentation certifying COVID-19 vaccination to enter a business or to get served. But the order does not preclude businesses such as restaurants and retail stores from screening protocols and other measures recommended by state and federal health officials. As of this week, more than 2 million
