Congressman Biggs Introduces Two COVID-19 Vaccine-Related Bills

January 25, 2021
Press Release

GILBERT, ARIZONA – Today, Congressman Andy Biggs introduced two pieces of legislation related to the COVID-19 vaccine. The first bill prohibits the use of federal funds to maintain or collect information that can be used to identify any individual to whom a COVID-19 vaccine is administered. The second bill prohibits the use of federal funds to propose, establish, implement, or enforce any requirement that an individual wear a mask or other face covering, or be vaccinated to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Congressman Biggs issued the following statement:

“COVID-19 is real and serious, and many Americans have realized the need to take precautions for themselves or their loved ones. Unfortunately, state and local officials have used this public health emergency to issue draconian mandates, destroy the right to privacy, and leverage fear for increased dependence on government. Many of my constituents and I fear that government will do the same with the historic COVID-19 vaccine. I support Americans who want to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine for themselves and their loved ones. I unequivocally oppose any government official who seeks to mandate this vaccine on any American, or who keeps a database of Americans who may have chosen not to receive the vaccine. All Americans should value and protect our freedoms and personal responsibility – no matter the emergency we face as a community, state, or nation.”
