Speak up for a good bill that would prohibit COVID-19 vaccine mandates, passports, and discrimination in multiple areas.
S.B. 156 is especially important given the pressure that is mounting to deny access to people who refuse COVID-19 injections. Requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination for citizens of Alaska to live their lives day-to-day is both an intrusion into people’s private medical information and coercion to be injected with this experimental, high-risk shot.
This terrific bill would ensure people have the right to all benefits available to the public without proof of vaccination against COVID-19.
Specifically, S.B. 156 protects against discrimination by enacting the following:
- No one from the state can ask a person’s vaccine status or for an immunity passport to travel to, or within, the state.
- No one may deny an individual any local or state governmental services, goods, facilities, advantages, privileges, licensing, educational opportunities, health care access, or employment opportunities based on the individual’s COVID-19 vaccination status or whether the individual has a COVID-19 immunity passport.
- No employer can refuse employment to an individual, bar an individual from employment, or discriminate against an individual in compensation or in a term, condition, or privilege of employment based on the individual’s COVID-19 vaccination status or whether the individual has a COVID-19 immunity passport.
- Establishes an individual may object to the administration of a COVID-19 vaccine to themselves or their children based on religious, medical, or other grounds.

Sample script for email is below. Personalize it by adding your own sentences and changing the wording – personal emails are far more effective than form letters!
“My name is ____ and I live in (town). I urge Senator to support S.B. 156, which would prohibit state government and businesses from requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination or possession of a vaccine passport.
S.B. 156 would ensure citizens can travel freely and get enjoy all the same benefits as a vaccinated person, including employment and educational opportunities, as well as access to health care.
This bill is especially important to ensure these entities do not discriminate against individuals who choose not to receive fast-tracked, experimental COVID-19 vaccines.
Citizens should not be forced to be injected with an experimental substance that could cause serious side effects. To date, there have been 740,000 injuries and 10,316 deaths reported to the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) and it is estimated that only 10 percent of adverse reactions are ever reported.
I urge Senator _____to SUPPORT S.B. 156, which would prohibit COVID-19 vaccination discrimination.
Keep your email short! Pick the 2 or 3 of these talking points – or none of them — that are most important to you, and be sure to explain why this issue matters to you personally.
- Share why this is personal to you. Do you or a family member have a history of vaccine reactions? Are you at risk for autoimmune conditions or other potential side effects of COVID-19 shots?
- No one knows in advance whom a vaccine will harm. Each of us may respond differently as we have different medical histories, genes, epigenetics, and microbiomes.
- As recognized by the World Health Organization, vaccine passports create two separate classes of citizens, something that is abhorrent to the principle of equal rights in this country.
- One of the most basic human rights is that of bodily autonomy, as recognized by the Nuremburg Code. Ethical medicine requires prior, completely voluntary, and fully informed consent.
- Vaccines are medical procedures that carry risk of serious injury. The U.S. Supreme Court recognizes vaccines to be “unavoidably unsafe” and to cause injury and death in some recipients. The U.S. Government has paid out $4.4 billion to the victims of vaccine injury. Hundreds of thousands have reported an adverse reaction to vaccination to VAERS. http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/ensuringsafety/monitoring/vaers/
- COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers and providers are shielded from liability through the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act, or PREP Act. The only option for compensating people injured by COVID-19 shots is the Countermeasures Injury Compensation program (CICP). Only eight percent of all petitioners since 2010 have been awarded compensation through the CICP. No legal or medial expert fees are covered, no pain and suffering is awarded, lost wages are capped at $50,000, and there is no judicial appeal. In other words, the victims will be severely undercompensated while the pharmaceutical companies get rich.
- The claimed justification – that unvaccinated individuals pose a health risk to others – has been shown to be false. Vaccinated individuals can become infected and transmit COVID to others.
- COVID-19 vaccines carry the risk of injury and death for some so there must be informed consent and the right to refuse the vaccine without penalty. As of January 21st, there had already been 740,000 COVID-19 vaccine adverse events and 10,316 COVID-19 vaccine deaths in the U.S. reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System.
