Mandatory Hospital Employee Immunizations - SB 133


This bill is still in committee of origin. If you have an opinion about whether it should or shouldn’t go out of committee for a vote contact the Senate Health and Provider services Committee.
:
This bill is very similar to the immunization bill from last session, and it has the same problems: allows hospitals to overrule an individual's healthcare provider regarding whether an immunization is needed or medically contraindicated, allows hospitals to overrule an individual's determination of whether the individual's religion precludes immunizations, and provides hospitals immunity for wrongful termination of employees. Moreover, nurses are not even included in the bill's definition of "health care professional." SB 133 is assigned to the Health and Provider Services Committee.
