Ivey Signs Vaccine Passport Ban

Vaccine passports are now illegal in Alabama. Gov. Kay Ivey Monday signed legislation barring businesses and local and state governments from requiring people to show proof of vaccination as a condition for obtaining goods and services. “Since the development of the COVID-19 vaccine, both [state health officer Dr. Scott Harris] and I have said that we would not mandate vaccines in the state of Alabama,” Ivey said in a statement. “I am supportive of a voluntary vaccine and by signing this bill into law, I am only further solidifying that conviction.” The law takes effect immediately.
