CA Vax Passport Legislation

Information on the ongoing legislative attempts to institute vaccine passports in California

Once again Evan Low (D Silicon Valley) has gutted and amended another bill: AB1102
 
Do not be snowed by your legislator’s office when you call.
 
If you are not sure what the language means, click here to read what the chamber of commerce says.
 
Requiring an employee to be vaccinated in order to put food on their table is tyranny.
 
 
Goal: Keep legislators’ staffs so busy that they cannot do anything else. That means CALLING both their Sacramento and Local offices until you speak with a live person.
 
Only call your OWN two legislators—Your state senator and your assemblyman. The staff looks up your name and doesn’t tally your call if you are not a constituent. 

🚨AB1102 – Currently tabled but stay tuned🚨

Friends!  #HOLDTHELINE! We may have won one battle (arguably, TBD) but we have NOT won the war.

🚨AB1102 IS STILL ALIVE & WELL🚨

• Employers can make CV 💉+++ BOOSTERS a condition of employment or your kid’s internship, which they have NEVER had the right to do before.

• If you do not comply, they have the RIGHT to fire you which = 👋🏽 byeeeee wrongful termination claims!

• We need your & your kids’ naturally immune super immune🩸 to protect us so no carve out’s or exemptions for natural immunity! (Sorry but that is just so sick idk why it just makes me 😡🤮. Also, talk about selfish!?!)

• Codifies all the LIES, mental gymnastics & intellectual hypocrisy they have had to engage in to justify or explain their narrative. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THESE LIES TO BECOME OUR LAWS!

• If this passes, we are all on the GLOBAL 💉📲✈️ “quick response” system & it’s game over.

🚨AB1102 MAY BE THE TROJAN HORSE TO BRING SOME / ALL OF 455 BACK INTO PLAY🚨

🚨455 & 1102 are “urgency statutes” which means ALL RULES ARE OUT THE WINDOW. They can waive requirements.🚨

So… STAY THE COURSE.

*UPDATE ON AB455 & AB 1102 from PERK*

YOU DID IT CALIFORNIA!

According to numerous capital sources AB 455 is dead for this legislative season.

I am sure you are overwhelmed with emotions right now! I am too. This bill was one of the worst I have ever seen. I am so relieved to hear that AB455, which would have imposed a statewide “Covid Vaccine Passport,” is now dead. I am so proud of the army of Californians who answered the call. THANK YOU!!!

If it had passed, this bill would have removed people from society, unless fully vaccinated with the covid shot. If it had passed, this bill would have created a vaccine mandate on private industry by requiring ALL employers in California to require all their employees to be fully vaccinated, including all Independent Contractors to be fully vaccinated. Secondly, it would have required everyone 12 years and older to be fully vaccinated to enter any indoor spaces.

Our fight is still on with the other bill. Now, all eyes need to be on AB1102. This one must not pass either. We still have to oppose AB1102. The digital vaccine passport comes in tandem with this second bill, currently drafted, called AB1102, On Page 7, Item (E), is the digital vaccine passport in the form of the SMART HEALTH APP. More on this soon.

GRATITUDE calls are just as important as opposition calls. Please:

EMAIL REPS TO THANK THEM FOR OPPOSING AB455

There are also several rallies organizing at the Capitol in Sacramento.  One is on September 8 at 10 AM. See more details about the bills and vaccine passports on our website.  www.perk-group.com

Thank you! This is a reflection on you, the people of California, that you do make a difference! We may all sleep just a little better tonight. We will be prepared with our army if this bill comes back in a special session this year or next year’s bills. Sending you all love and a BIG HUG!

*UPDATE ON AB455 & AB 1102 from AVFC*

We won! The potential bill (AB455) that would have mandated vaccines for all Californians is dead for the session!

But we have to keep the pressure on!! Share the petition, come to Sacramento September 8th and get people to vote Yes on the Recall

A Voice for Choice Advocacy just got word that Assembly Member Buffy Wicks has decided not to move forward with the potential bill that would have require ALL employers in California to require all their employees to be full vaccinated, and would require everyone 12 years and older to be fully vaccinated to enter any inn, hotel, motel, or lodging establishment, any restaurant, bar, cafeteria, lunchroom, lunch counter, soda fountain, or other facilities engaged in selling food or beverages for consumption on the premises, and any motion picture house, theater, concert hall, sports arena, stadium, gym, spa, or other place of exhibition or entertainment.  However, she is committed to working on it over the fall and coming back with a revised proposed bill either in a special session or in January. 

The other potential bill (AB1102) by Assembly member Low that amends current state discrimination statute (Section 12940 of the Government Code) by specifying that the law does not prevent an employer from requiring a COVID-19 vaccination as a condition of employment for all employees, interns, apprentices or those seeking unpaid work experience, as well as requires a vaccine passport is still very much alive.  

The only way to stop these bills from coming back is to vote Yes on the Recall, and remove Governor Newsom.  If he is still in office after September 14th, 2021 these bills will be passed later this year or next year.

Background info  

Per California law, Los Angeles Unified School District cannot require the COVID-19 vaccine, unless either 1) the legislature passes a law that states it is required for school (per the childhood vaccines requirements for school) or 2) the California Department of Public Health puts out regulations stating such (in which case they would also have to allow a personal belief exemption), neither of which have happened to date.  It also goes against Los Angeles Unified School District’s Nondiscrimination Statement.  Specifically:

California Statute: Per Section 120335 of the CA Health and Safety Code, Culver City Unified School District does not have the jurisdiction to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for K-12 students.  This can only be done by the California Public Health Department, who would have to offer a Personal Belief Exemption, or through the passing of a law by the State Legislature and Governor.

Los Angeles Unified School District Discrimination Statement: “The Los Angeles Unified School District is committed to providing a working and learning environment free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation and bullying.
The District prohibits discrimination, harassment, intimidation and bullying based on actual or perceived race or ethnicity, gender/sex (including gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and pregnancy-related medical conditions) sexual orientation, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental status, marital status, registered domestic partner status, age (40 and above), genetic information, political belief or affiliation (not union related), a person’s association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics, or any other basis protected by federal, state or local law, ordinance, or regulation in any program or activity it conducts or to which it provides significant assistance.”

Emergency Use Authorization and Liability: The vaccine clinical trials endpoints of all three vaccines were to reduce hospitalization and death.  They did not analyze for transmission or prevention of infection.  The delta variant is now the dominant variant in California.  The CDC has made it clear, in recent weeks, that vaccinated persons can transmit the delta variant, and even have as high viral loads as the unvaccinated.  At this point, those who are vaccinated have protected themselves against severe COVID or death.  Those who have made the choice not to get vaccinated, are no different from those who are vaccinated other than if they get the disease they risk possibly getting sicker than those who are vaccinated who get COVID.  It is a personal choice to get vaccinated or not, but the risk of transmitting it to someone else seems to be similar.  Requiring the COVID-19 vaccine, especially among children, to reduce transmission of SARS-COV-2 is not the answer.

While COVID-19 vaccines have been granted Emergency Use Authorization for those 12 years and older, they are not likely to get fully approved by the FDA until the end of this year.  These vaccines, especially among 12-15 year olds are still in the experimental phase with no large scale data on the safety and efficacy of either vaccine.  Under the Federal Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act, all COVID-19 vaccine makers are provided immunity from liability for their products.  However, LAUSD and the schools implementing this requirement open themselves up for lawsuits if a student is injured by a required COVID-19 vaccine.

While AVFCA is hopeful that this will educate LAUSD and a retraction will follow, unfortunately other school districts and the state often follow LAUSD’s lead.  AVFCA will remain on high alert, especially given the Governor and Legislature’s seeming desire to mandate vaccines for everyone.
