ACT NOW: HB262 legally safeguards Pennsylvanians’ right to refuse

The Right to Refuse Act protects employees from being dismissed for choosing not to vaccinate

Our Stand

  • House Representative Russ Diamond (R 102) filed HB262 that would grant employees the “Right to Refuse” any vaccination or “invasive medical testing” required by an employer.
  • This bill is called the Right to Refuse Act and is now in the Labor and Industry committee. Please call the committee members and ask them to please pass HB262.
  • “An employee’s body is their own, and employers should not be permitted to require invasive medical tests or vaccinations as a condition of employment,” says Rep. Diamond.
  • There are multiple lawmakers in favor of passage, including State Representative Barbara Gleim (R) of Cumberland County. She says that she isn’t against inoculation, but she doesn’t believe that workers should be forced to vaccinate. “I am pro-business, but put yourself in the position of a woman who wants to start a family and her employer is saying, ‘You have to get a vaccine by this date or you no longer have a job.’ You go get the vaccine, and you get the Moderna paper. It states that before you get the vaccine, tell your provider or primary care physician if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant? What do you do?” questioned Rep. Gleim.
  • There are numerous reasons why someone might choose to decline any vaccine. Among the most common are a conscientious objection, religious conviction, history of prior vaccine injury, and concerns over safety, including the lack of short- and long-term safety data.

COVID-19 vaccine makers cannot be sued for injuries or deaths caused by their products.[1] Victims may file a claim with the federal Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), but as yet, there is no Table of Covered Injuries for COVID-19 vaccines. Outcomes for past claims for other products fail to inspire confidence — since 2010, a whopping 92% of claims filed with CICP were rejected, with no appeal permitted. [2][3]

The recent FDA authorization for COVID-19 vaccines is for Emergency Use Authorization ONLY. Testing for these vaccines was not required to meet standards otherwise required by federal law for FDA approval. According to the FDA, “There is no U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved vaccine to prevent COVID-19.” [4][5]

Rushing a questionable vaccine for public use has backfired before with fatal consequences. A similarly rushed vaccine rollout led to the death of numerous Filipino children who received a dengue vaccine during a declared epidemic before long-term risks were evaluated. [6] No one yet knows how the new COVID-19 vaccines will affect people with autoimmune disease or cancer, pregnant women and unborn babies, or what impact the vaccine may have on fertility.

mRNA is an unproven technology and has never been used in vaccines for humans. [7] Previous coronavirus mRNA vaccine trials resulted in ferrets with liver damage, [8] mice with enhanced respiratory disease, [9] and monkeys with ADE lung damage. [10]

COVID-19 vaccines have not been proven to prevent disease transmission. [11] [12] They may only reduce symptoms, but not prevent infection. nformed consent.
