Press Release: Gov. Little bans ‘vaccine passports’ in Idaho

By • April 7, 2021

The following Press Release was sent out by Governor Brad Little on April 7th, 2021:

Boise, Idaho – Governor Brad Little signed an executive order today banning any State of Idaho governmental entity from requiring so-called “vaccine passports” – or proof of COVID-19 vaccination for citizens to receive public services or access facilities.

“Idahoans should be given the choice to receive the vaccine. We should not violate Idahoans’ personal freedoms by requiring them to receive it,” Governor Little said. “Vaccine passports create different classes of citizens. Vaccine passports restrict the free flow of commerce during a time when life and the economy are returning to normal. Vaccine passports threaten individual freedom and patient privacy.”

Some states are exploring the creation of vaccine passports, and the State of New York is promoting a software program that will facilitate the exclusion of Americans who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine from receiving services and fully participating in public life, the Governor’s executive order states.

“I have serious concerns that implementing COVID-19 vaccine passports will violate Idahoans’ medial privacy rights, prejudice those unable to receive the vaccine, slow our economic recovery, cause division among our populace and, ultimately, be counterproductive to the widespread administration of the COVID-19 vaccines among Idahoans,” Governor Little said.

Governor Little noted close to half a million Idahoans have received the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. He continues to urge Idahoans to choose to receive the vaccine to protect lives and return life, schools, and the economy to normal.

  1. His game thru out this whole ordeal has been to get others to do his tyranny for him. Notice, he doesn’t seem to be forbidding businesses from requiring a passport, just government. But government would be in hot water for requiring it anyway, since this is an Experimental mRNA shot.

    Safe and effective? Do your own research! Did the new mRNA COVID shot bypass animal testing to get rushed to market??? That means it’s an EXPERIMENTAL mRNA COVID shot, and YOU are the Lab Rat!!!
    But Doctors aren’t informing people of this and don’t seem to understand the experimental mRNA. They say, “it’s like the flu shot” and CDC recommended. CDC recommended masks, distancing, wiping surfaces… even though they have a study on their website, from a year back, showing it ALL to be ineffective. And they are incentivized to push vaccines.
    CDC and little Gov. can not be trusted.

    G. Vanden Bossche, a vaccine creator who is desperately trying to warn people to stop giving this shot, says it will basically destroy your immune system and make you a super spreader. There is some talk this might be where the variants are coming from.
    Is that true? Don’t you think we should be curious?

    Let’s not forget little Gov. suppressed the use of HCQ when he declared his emergency, among 44 States to do so. Before it was controversial.

  2. By the beginning of April, the number of COVID vaccine injuries reported to VAERS surpassed 50,000, including 2,250 deaths.

    But, that experimental mRNA COVID shot, that little Gov. wants 16 year olds, pregnant and nursing mothers to take
    without providing proper information to give fully informed consent to be a lab rat,
    he calls it safe and effective. “like a flu shot”

  3. Glad to see this happened. I contacted my reps urging to back a move to ban these. As far as businesses go – it’s up to them. A business should (still) have the right to refuse service to anyone. If they choose to require this, here in ID, well, let’s just see how quickly they reverse that decision when all hell breaks loose.

  4. And a reminder since Little forgot, it is against the law for anyone to ask you if you have had the COVID vaccine or not. This is medical protection guaranteed by HIPPA. Any negative action based on medical information would be discrimination.

  5. The governor cannot issue an executive order to small businesses, but he should go further in using the bully-pulpit to encourage the legislature in banning vaccine passports.

  6. Well…our governor made a statement. But only after Texas and even the Biden administration nixed this potential affront. I am singularly unimpressed.

  7. I really thin it’s time for hardball. The governor should sign an executive order that the state government will not do business with any corporation that enacts a vaccine passport. It’s within his power, I believe.
