(AbsoluteNews.com) – As more Americans become vaccinated and others decide that they aren’t going to receive the shots, discussions about vaccine passports have been coming up. These are apps or cards of some sort that people would have to show to prove they were vaccinated before entering a venue. Several states, including Florida, have already banned the passports and Alabama just became the latest to follow suit.
On May 24, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey (R) signed SB267 into law. The legislation prevents both private businesses and public entities from demanding documentation from people to prove they received the vaccinations. In a statement to the press, Ivey said she’s supportive of voluntary vaccines but would not mandate them in her state. She believes the new law will “further [solidify] that conviction.”
✍️I’ve signed SB 267!
Since the development of the #COVID19 vaccine, both Dr. Harris & I have said that we wouldn't mandate vaccines in AL. I’m supportive of a voluntary vaccine & by signing this bill into law, I'm only further solidifying that conviction. #alpolitics pic.twitter.com/Sw23e1eIfz

Ivey and other governors who have outlawed vaccine passports are standing up for the rights of their residents. No person should ever have to undergo a forced medical treatment in order to enter concerts, sports games, or other events. Americans have freedom of choice and they should be able to exercise that.
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
