We applaud AG Steve Marshall for his guidance letter on vaccine passport requirements for Alabama residents. He explains how the recently passed Alabama law protects you from vaccine passports.
In a nutshell, AG Marshall states, “…no government, school, or business in Alabama may demand that a constituent, student, or customer, respectively, be vaccinated for COVID-19 or show proof of his or her vaccination for COVID-19. The law’s new protections are in addition to existing medical or religious-based exemptions from immunizations, as discussed more fully below.”
THE AG’S GUIDANCE IF GOVERNMENT COMES TO YOUR DOOR
AG Marshall states, “This Office has received inquiries related to COVID-19 “vaccination doorknockers,” also known as “Community Health Ambassadors” in some states. While this does not appear to be occurring in Alabama, be advised that you are under no obligation to engage with or share any personal information—including your COVID-19 vaccination status—with anyone identifying as a health ambassador or government volunteer.
