Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order on Monday banning state and locally enforced vaccine passports.
The Republican’s move declares that “state agencies, counties, cities and towns cannot issue a measure that requires an individual to provide documentation of their COVID-19 vaccination status,” but “private businesses are not prohibited from requiring vaccination documentation in order to provide services or allow entry.”
“The residents of our state should not be required by the government to share their private medical information,” Ducey said. “While we strongly recommend all Arizonans get the COVID-19 vaccine, it’s not mandated in our state — and it never will be.
