to maintain healthcare choice
and privacy for
Healthcare Workers Uniting...
We represent thousands and thousands of healthcare workers who are uniting to stand for our own healthcare choice and privacy.
For years healthcare workers have been required by their employers to subscribe to a mandatory vaccination program against our wishes.
Now the general public faces the same with Covid-19 vaccines becoming mandated in their places of employment, as a requirement to attend school, and even as a prerequisite to participate in society.
We say enough is enough. No more mandatory vaccines for anyone! If a product is so safe and effective, our industry wouldn't need to bribe and force people to subscribe to the product.
We will no longer be silenced by our corporate employers, we will no longer be bullied into receiving a vaccine against our wishes, and we will no longer stand idly by as our industry guilts and shames our patients.
Stand for the healthcare choice and privacy of your patients, and yourself!
Ohio House Bill 248: The Vaccine Choice & Anti-Discrimination Act
As Ohio healthcare workers - physicians, nurses, clinicians, and support staff - we support Ohio House Bill 248, The Vaccine Choice & Anti-Discrimination Act, sponsored by State Rep. Jennifer Gross (R-West Chester).
This legislation aims to preserve Ohioan's right to direct their own healthcare decisions with informed consent and free of coercion, and also maintain Ohioan's right to privacy in their healthcare decisions.
"As a nurse practitioner, Gross noted she is pro-vaccine and values the progress that the medical field has made in enhancing the health and well-being of humanity."
"According to the Ohio Department of Health, over three million people have received the COVID-19 vaccine thus far."
"'There are eleven and a half million people in Ohio,' said Gross. 'Many people across the state may be likely to decline vaccines like the COVID-19 vaccine for conscientious, religious, or medical reasons. Without the exemption provisions this bill provides, the notion of a vaccine passport could easily lead to a class system in Ohio where segregation and discrimination will proliferate.'"
