Resolution Opposing a Vaccine Passport in Vermont

WHEREAS, the right of the people to be secure in their persons, papers and effects is protected by 4th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and

NOW, THEREFORE be it RESOLVED that WE, The Vermont Republican Party, oppose any government entity or its subdivisions, agents, or assigns, issuing vaccine passports, vaccine passes, other documentation regarding vaccine status in any form, or issuing legislation, for the purpose of certifying an individual's vaccination status to a third party, or otherwise publish or share any individual's vaccination record or similar health information, or require such identification for access to any government service, including education. 


AND, FURTHER RESOLVED that WE also generally oppose public places of accommodation denying service or access to any person based on their documented vaccination status.
