Rep. Andy Biggs introduced a bill on Thursday that would prevent federal agencies from imposing mandatory documentation showing a person has received a COVID-19 vaccine.
The legislation aims to block authorities from certifying a U.S. citizen’s COVID-19 vaccination status to a third party, such as a restaurant or airline, as well as prohibit proof of vaccination from being a requirement to access federal or congressional property or services.
