Los Angeles, CA – Today America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) released the nonprofit, non-partisan organization’s latest medical-advocacy project, the COVID-19 Vaccine Bill of Rights (VBOR). The measure, presented as a memorializing resolution, can be passed by any of the 50 state legislatures and immediately adopted. The Vaccine Bill of Rights prohibits “vaccine passports,” “digital health IDs,” and other mandates currently supported by certain public as well as private entities. The VBOR lays out six provisions which provide a legal and ethical framework to protect patients who choose to opt out of the largest experimental vaccination program in US history. Read the draft legislation enacting the Vaccine Bill of Rights here.
The Vaccine Bill of Rights contains six general categories of protections for individuals against overweening government and attempted interventions by private businesses and organizations. AFLDS is encouraging lawmakers to adopt a minimum of four out of the six provisions contained in the VBOR, depending on the circumstances of their state and policy prerogatives. These provisions are:
Said AFLDS, “Mandates, ‘passports’ or any effort to intimidate Americans into taking a vaccine for a virus with a 99.7% survival rate not only is damaging to individual liberty it also contradicts safe medical practice. Yet state governments, along with powerful private interests, are moving in the direction of requiring inoculations for large segments of our society as a condition to return to a ‘normal’ life. This is wrong. As part of the AFLDS commitment to science-based information exchange, transparency, and accountability, our organization developed this Vaccine Bill of Rights so that state legislatures can re-affirm their commitments to individual rights of conscience, assembly, and movement. America’s Frontline Doctors encourages our representatives to immediately pass this critical measure, direct public health officials to comply, and preserve the freedom of their constituents.”
The document will be distributed to legislative clerks as well as the majority and minority leadership of all 50 state legislatures. Read the entire COVID-19 Vaccine Bill of Rights here.
