The Facts

  • Last Wednesday, two Idaho state Republican lawmakers, Sen. Tammy Nichols and Rep. Judy Boyle, introduced legislation that would make it a misdemeanor to administer mRNA vaccines.

  • House Bill (HB) 154 was introduced in the House Health and Welfare Committee. It states, "A person may not provide or administer a vaccine developed using messenger ribonucleic acid technology for use in an individual or any other mammal in this state."

The Spin

Left narrative

This is a political stunt aimed at threatening healthcare providers who administer life-saving vaccinations, all to appease the anti-vaxxer faction of the right. Though the CDC, WHO, and various medical journals have all presented facts to the contrary, Idaho's GOP has chosen to ignore the science and punish doctors. If they were truly concerned with health rather than politics, the lawmakers would go after the pharma companies that developed the vaccine.

Right narrative

VAERS reports are made by both individual vaccine recipients and healthcare providers, so these data are not to be taken lightly. States have a right to study, question, and legislate based on vaccine research. This issue has become politicized, but not because of so-called anti-vaxxer right-wingers. Left-wing media outlets and Big Tech have censored reports of vaccine injuries, and it's about time officeholders held the rich and powerful to account.
