Indiana: Call your reps!!!
In Indiana, SB162 just passed the full senate with a vote of 50 to 0 and is off to the house.
From National Vaccine Information Center:
SB 162 , vaccine mandates for hospital employees, passed the full senate on 2/2/16 by vote of 50 yes and 0 no. The bill is now in the house pending committee assignment.
SB 162 was amended and has become a much worse bill. The amended version that passed:
— Eliminates the personal belief exemption.
— Restricts the religious exemption by allowing a hospital to establish a process for determining whether the tenets of the religion relied upon by an individual for purposes of a religious exemption would prohibit the individual from receiving an immunization.
— Restricts the medical exemption to medically contraindicated.
— Allows employees to be fired and protects the hospital or agent from any liability for firing an individual.
