Your Right to Choose to Decline Workplace Vaccination
Several major Idaho employers, including St. Luke’s, St. Alphonsus, and Primary Care have stated that they will now discriminate based on their employees’ personal health choices. This is wrong and needs to be made explicitly illegal. The Governor of Idaho protected the jobs of State Employees from being affected by their COVID-19 vaccination status with Executive Order 2021-04, but this does nothing to protect those who work for someone other than the State of Idaho.
No one should be forced to choose between keeping their job and undergoing a medical procedure that violates their bodily autonomy, especially one which lacks long-term data, has inherent risk, and is still only under experimental use authorization.
WE THE PEOPLE need to stand side by side with our healthcare professionals and NOT permit their employers to coerce them into vaccine mandates! Now more than ever, we need to rise up and say NO!
Here’s what you can do:
1. VACCINE EXEMPTIONS IN IDAHO LAW ARE SPECIFIC FOR CHILDREN. The medical, philosophical, and religious exemptions we talk about all the time through HFI are only applicable to minor children, and only for school and daycare attendance.
2. VACCINE EXEMPTIONS SHOULD EXIST IN YOUR WORKPLACE. Look into any possible exemption for adults with their employers are ones that may or may not be available through any given company. Please inquire with your employer. (Information regarding moral/religious exemption) Utilize the resources below.
3. UNITE! You are strong, especially together. You have the God-given right to your bodily autonomy, and you have strength in numbers. Talk to each other. Here’s a Facebook group for healthcare workers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/377518550406136/

Questions and Answers on the Covid-19 Vaccine
Pacific Justice Institute
July 2, 2021
Question: Can my employer order me to be vaccinated against Covid (also referred to as
COVID-19, novel coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2) and can they threaten to fire me if I do not
Answer: First, no one can force you to take the Covid vaccine, because it has not been
approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The vaccine is currently being
administered under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) because the vaccines were not
studied for a sufficient time to ensure there are no long-term side effects. There are a number
of authorities and resources you can cite that show you cannot be forced to take a vaccine.
Consider the following four examples:
- The EUA itself, 21 U.S. Code § 360bbb–3, requires “. . . Individuals to whom the product
is administered are informed— of the option to accept or refuse administration of the
product, of the consequences, if any, of refusing administration of the product . . .”1
- Each person who is about to receive a Covid vaccine is given a fact sheet, which states in
part: “WHAT IF I DECIDE NOT TO GET THE (insert drug company name) COVID-19
VACCINE? It is your choice to receive or not receive the (insert drug company name)
COVID-19 Vaccine. Should you decide not to receive it, it will not change your standard
- In the 2004 case of Doe v. Rumsfeld,
3 plaintiffs challenged the government’s Anthrax
Vaccination Immunization Program (AVIP), because anthrax vaccine adsorbed (AVA) had
never been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective drug for protection against
inhalation anthrax. Yet the government was forcing military personnel to take the
vaccine. The United States District Court for the District of Columbia issued an injunction
1 See, 21 U.S. Code § 360bbb–3 – Authorization for medical products for use in emergencies. Subsection (e)(1)(A)(ii) 2 See, https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/eua/index.html. 3 Doe v. Rumsfeld, 341 F. Supp. 2d 1, 2004 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 21668.

Federal statutes: VACCINE UNDER EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZATION.
“What people don’t understand is that every single one of those products was issued under something called an Emergency Use Authorization. It is a Federal Code under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, which grants the Secretary of Health and Human Services the authority to grant the EUAs. The EUA statute specifically says, “Individuals to whom the product is administered are informed that the Secretary has authorized the EUA. They must be informed of the known and potential benefits and risks of such use and of the extent to which such benefits and risks are unknown. Most importantly, of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product.”
– Interview with Leslie Manookian, Health Freedom Defense
Regarding compulsory COVID-19 requirement imposed upon an employee violates federal law.
1 Title 21, Section 360bbb-3 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the “FD&C Act”) vests the Secretary of Health and Human Services with the permissive authority to grant Emergency Use Authorizations (“EUAs”). However, the statute requires that: individuals to whom the product is administered are informed— (I) that the Secretary has authorized the emergency use of the product; (II) of the significant known and potential benefits and risks of such use, and of the extent to which such benefits and risks are unknown; and (III) of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product, of the consequences, if any, of refusing administration of the product, and of the alternatives to the product that are available and of their benefits and risks.
“BREAKING NEWS: FDA updated the EUA Fact sheet for all 3 Covid vaccines to let people know that you have a CHOICE to get or not get the vaccine. Attorneys across the US are saying forcing someone to get one to attend college or keep your job violates the federal common rule.”

CIVIL RIGHTS & DISCRIMINATION
The Americans with Disabilities Act [ADA] and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
Title I of ADA Title I of the ADA applies to private employers with 15 or more employees. It also applies to state and local government employers, employment agencies, and labor unions.
All nondiscrimination standards under Title I of the ADA also apply to federal agencies under Section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which enforces these federal civil rights laws in employment, has issued guidance on COVID-19 and vaccination policies. The Americans with Disabilities Act [ADA] and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 are relevant to employers or lawmakers crafting vaccination requirements. EEOC provides examples of potential reasonable accommodations. Examples of a “reasonable accommodation” for employees who cannot comply with a vaccine mandate because of a disability; religious belief, practice or observance; or pregnancy include requiring the unvaccinated employee to:
- Wear a face mask at work
- Work at a social distance from co-workers or non-employees
- Work a modified shift
- Get periodic COVID-19 tests
- Work via a provided telework arrangement
- Accept a reassignment

Additional Information and Resources regarding risk, statistics, and the science (that is currently being censored by mainstream media)
The EUA (emergency use authorization) statute specifically says, “Individuals to whom the product is administered are informed that the Secretary has authorized the EUA. They must be informed of the known and potential benefits and risks of such use and of the extent to which such benefits and risks are unknown. Most importantly, of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product.”

LIABILITY FREE PRODUCTS
On February 4, 2020, the Secretary of HHS invoked the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness act (PREP Act) and declared COVID-19 to be a public health emergency, warranting liability protection for covered countermeasures, which includes vaccination. If an individual is injured or killed by a COVID-19 vaccine, the manufacturer cannot be held liable per the PREP Act. The only possible recourse should you or a loved one suffer injury or death is to pursue compensation through the Countermeasure Injury Compensation Program, which has a difficult threshold for proving a relationship between an injury and the vaccine, a short statute of limitations, no avenue for appeals and doesn’t pay damages for pain or suffering.
The liability exempt status for vaccine manufacturers is not new. Pharmaceutical companies have enjoyed their liability-free status for all vaccinations on the CDC schedule since the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. After large numbers of lawsuits were brought forth for injuries and deaths resulting from the DPT vaccine, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act to protect pharmaceutical companies from liability specifically for vaccines. No other product or industry is protected from liability for injury and death in this way.
Without any liability, what incentive is there to ensure the vaccine is as safe as possible? Will the employer requiring vaccination be held liable for injury and/or death?
