The ‘dangerous’ mandated vaccine bill is on its way to the House
March 10, 2022
Any employers who accept public funding and mandates vaccines must exempt employers who refuse reasons of conscience, but they could try to work out a reasonable accommodation with them, if a bill that the House Labor Committee recommended for passage becomes law.
HB 1210 — an amalgamation of three of many anti-vaccination bills before the committee — does not exempt hospitals and nursing homes, which are mandated by the federal government to require all their workers to get vaccinated or risk losing millions of dollars of federal funds. And a section of the bill makes it clear that the bill would include institutions of higher education.
