On Thursday, House Representative Andy Biggs of Arizona introduced a bill called the No Vaccine Passports Act to Congress that would ban federal agencies from issuing vaccine passports documenting a person's COVID-19 vaccine status.

In a statement issued by Congressman Biggs, he said that we was "profoundly disturbed" at the considerations, and called them an invasion of privacy.

"I am profoundly disturbed that the Biden Administration would even consider imposing vaccine passports on the American people. My private healthcare decisions—and yours—are nobody else’s business.  Vaccine passports will not help our nation recover from COVID-19; instead, they will simply impose more Big Brother surveillance on our society," said Biggs.

In the official text, the bill looks to prohibit federal agencies from issuing "a vaccine passport, vaccine pass, or other standardized documentation for the purpose of certifying the COVID- 19 vaccination status of a citizen of the United States to a third party, or otherwise publish or share any COVID-19 vaccination record of a citizen of the United States, or similar health information."

It would also prohibit the requirement to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination to access federal property or services, or for access to congressional grounds or services.

Although the Biden Administration has stated that it will not be instituting vaccine passports nationwide, officials in Florida, Texas, Utah, and Idaho have banned the use of vaccine passports in their states. According to Forbes, New York is the first state to institute the passports.
