Coalition Opposes Problematic Vaccine Bill

The OMA joined a coalition of Ohio health care and business organizations this week to voice concerns to members of the House Health Committee over House Bill 248.

HB 248 would prohibit any public or private entity (i.e. businesses, schools, childcare facilities, universities, hospitals) from mandating or requesting an individual get any vaccine, not just the COVID-19 vaccine, or from requiring or requesting an individual’s vaccine status.

In essence, this bill would strip employers’ rights to implement important safety measures meant to protect their workforce, clients, and others. 5/27/2021
