Support Senate Bill SB 65

SB 65 prohibits a person from discriminating against or refusing a public accommodation to an individual based on vaccination or immunity status.  A "person" is legally defined as an individual, corporation, business trust, estate, trust, partnership, limited liability company, association, joint venture, government, governmental subdivision, agency, or instrumentality, public corporation, any other legal or commercial entity, or a particular series of a for-profit entity.”

SB 65 specifically prohibits health care facilities and providers, long term care facilities, group health benefits plans, life insurance companies, employers, labor organizations, employment agencies, licensing authorities, and educational institutions from denying or negatively affecting services based on vaccination or immunity status. Vaccination or immunity status of individuals covered by insurance plans may not be used as a factor in rating a plan or discriminating against a health care provider.

SB 65 also prohibits vaccine mandates and forced vaccination by schools and government. This includes prohibiting government entities, the governor, a state agency, a political subdivision, or a political subdivision official from requiring individuals be vaccinated or forcing individuals to administer vaccines and discriminating against or posing a civil or criminal penalty against such individuals. This prohibition applies to all laws, agency rules, and executive or emergency orders.

SB 65 removes immunizations from legally enforceable control measures. Existing employee vaccine requirement policies for health care and day care facilities are removed. Parental consent is required for all recommended childhood vaccines. 

SB 65 prohibits vaccination or immunity status from being used for issuance of a driver’s license, voter id, or personal id by the state, and the transportation department is prohibited from penalizing, discriminating against, or denying services or access to anyone for not providing proof of vaccination or immunity status.
