Scharfenberger Introduces Bill A5607 Seeking to Prevent Usage of Vaccine Passports

Middletown, N.J.  Assemblyman Gerry Scharfenberger (LD13-R) has introduced bill A5607, a piece of legislation designed to combat the implementation and the very notion of mandating individuals acquire “vaccine passports” before taking part in common societal activities as well as preventing the discrimination of those who do not wish to disclose such information:

“With the introduction of my bill A5607, New Jersey now has the opportunity to prohibit the use of vaccine passports for all citizens,” Scharfenberger said. “It is also gratifying to have the support of Assemblymen McGuckin and Catalano of Ocean County on this important legislation which will no doubt help to push back against these arbitrary, unfounded intrusions of personal health privacies.”

The concept of vaccination passports was a topic of debate last spring, but was rightfully met with heavy public criticism, which appeared to put the issue to bed. However, as time has passed there have been a number of troubling instances occurring throughout New Jersey in which certain elected officials appear to not only support these “passports,” but also do not seem concerned as to possible infringements on rights or HIPAA violations – promulgating a dangerous precedent:

“This will protect New Jerseyeans’ right to choose their own medical destiny, and allow them to work, travel, attend universities and participate in any aspect of society without compromising their privacy,” continued Scharfenberger. “We cannot continue to allow government to continuously intrude into our lives any further than it already has. We have witnessed far too many infringements already – it is time to say enough is enough.”
