Governor Bill Lee Takes Stand Against Vaccine Passports

TN Gov. Bill Lee

Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee has joined fellow Republicans nationwide to advocate against COVID-19 vaccine passports.

 

Governor Lee tweeted Tuesday that he supports legislation to prohibit government-mandated vaccine passports to protect Tennesseans’ health information and ensure the vaccine remains a voluntary, personal decision.

 

The passports show whether someone has been vaccinated or recently tested negative for COVID-19. It currently exists only in New York. Republicans in multiple states are pursuing proposals to ban their use as a restriction against people’s activities.
