CONCORD – A bill offered by Republican senators that would prohibit the requirement of COVID-19 vaccinations as a condition of employment, education, access to businesses, and/or public venues received a hearing Wednesday before the Senate Health and Human Services Committee.
A business community leader called it “extremely bad public policy.”
If it becomes law, it would deny employers the ability to protect their staff if, for example, a more lethal new variant comes along and could mean the loss of millions of federal dollars for health care settings, including New Hampshire State Hospital and the Glencliff Home, the Senate Health and Human Services Committee was told.
