May 06, 2021
An article by FOX5 Atlanta titled: "Gov. Kemp Signs Executive Order Prohibiting State from Requiring COVID-19 Vaccine Passports
" expands on the recently issued "Prohibition of COVID-19 Vaccine Passports" executive order.
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp elaborated on the reasoning behind this decision. "While I continue to urge all Georgians to get vaccinated so we continue our momentum in putting the COVID-19 pandemic in the rearview, vaccination is a personal decision between each citizen and a medical professional - not state government. This order also clearly states that data held by the Georgia Department of Public Health and their immunization system will not be used by any public or private entity for a vaccine passport program."
The Prohibition of COVID-19 Vaccine Passports
executive order features the following guidelines:
- State agencies, state service providers, and state properties are not allowed to demand COVID-19 vaccine passports.
- Vaccine passport are not required for entry into the State of Georgia.
- Georgia Registry of Immunization Transactions and Services (GRITS) data held by the State cannot be used to promote the implementation of vaccine passport programs.
- State employers are not allowed to have different rules for employees based on vaccination status.
