SB 162 would have mandated MMR, Varicella, TDap, & yearly flu shots, not just for nurses; for everyone who works in a hospital or hospital-owned clinic. It included volunteers, students, office workers, valet parking attendants, and also included contractors. Basically anyone who ever set foot in a hospital or clinic in any work-related capacity.
There was no provision for titer tests. Hospitals could add additional vaccines to the required list at any time. Anyone who refused could be fired with no recourse.
From what we were told, SB 162 in Indiana was the test case for similar bills waiting to be introduced in 13 other states.
VLA COMMENT: The passage last year of the California bill that mandates that daycare workers, owners and volunteers must be vaccinated set the precedence that government can mandate vaccines to private industry. As the medical cabal gets more and more evil they have the audacity to try to mandate 8 vaccine doses, not just the flu shot which was the “toe in the water”. Although in the past private industry has gotten away with “NO SHOT, NO JOBS”, the California law and this bill gave and would give the power to the government to mandate vaccines or NO JOB!.
SB 162 INDIANA (PASSED SENATE UNOPPOSED)
1. Requires a minimum of 8 vaccines for hospital employees as a condition of employment: Influenza, Varicella, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (page 2 lines 13-16). READ BILL AND MORE…
Allows hospitals to fire employees who don’t receive the required vaccines (page 2 lines 38-42) and protects the hospital or agent from any liability for firing an individual over vaccination compliance (page 3 lines (9-13).
Removes the personal belief exemption
VLA COMMENT: California was the first to pass a legislation that gave the power to a state to mandate vaccines per industry. Indiana in now following. Other states will follow.
Urgent need to stop this at the House level
U.S. Senate Passes Bill Approving Mandatory Vaccinations for Veterans
A Bill has just passed the U.S. Senate, mandating that the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs ensure that all veterans receive immunizations (vaccines) per a draconian schedule. At this juncture, active military must receive over a dozen vaccines. This piece of legislation is therefore an effort to extend the vaccine mandate to those who have previously served their country.
Sec. 101 of Senate Bill 1203, named the 21st Century Veterans Benefits Delivery Act, states that the Department of Veterans Affairs will be tasked with the mandate to……ensure that veterans receiving medical services under chapter 17 of title 38, United States Code, receive each immunization on the recommended adult immunization schedule at the time such immunization is indicated on that schedule.
