Oregon Senator Speaks Out Against Vaccine Passports
OHA wants to implement digital vaccine records

Tuesday, November 30th marks the final day for public input on the Oregon Health Authority’s digital vaccine record program.

Senator Dennis Linthicum (R-Klamath Falls) released the following statement:

“Kate Brown and her administration rely on edicts, unconstitutional mandates, and brute force. They have tossed aside normal democratic processes in favor of gross government overreach through the tyrannical rule of one person."

“The OHA has no businesses creating a system that enables private businesses to discriminate based on a person’s private medical decisions."

"No Oregonian should be coerced into any medical procedures just to live in this otherwise beautiful state and participate in everyday activities."

“Will an Oregonian be able to shop at the mall, eat at their favorite restaurant, ride public transit, attend classes at the local college, or visit the grocery store without their passport? This is just one more step toward giving the unelected bureaucrats the power to decide who is worthy to participate in society."

“This absurd, un-American, and unconstitutional plan is not about public health but about instituting state control over every detail of life.”

The Oregon Legislature's House Interim Special Committee on COVID-19 Response intends for the Digital Vaccine Records Project to be implemented, as quickly as possible, and some observers are suggesting that they are trying doing so as quietly as possible, as to avoid public resistance.

Development and testing of the project is said to be within a six month period, with March 8th, 2022 expected to be the official launch date.
