LANSING, Mich.  — In a bill submitted by Michigan Representative Sue Allor would ban use of digital vaccine passports as a requirement to enter government spaces such as buildings and courtrooms.

"I believe that every individual has a right to medical privacy," said Allor, whose 106th District covers the northeast corner of Lower Michigan. “I don't believe an individual should have to show that they've had a vaccine in order to go about their daily activities.”

The bill would not apply to private entities, such as businesses.

A hearing on the bill will be held next week in the Michigan House Oversight Committee.
