State Rep. Al Cutrona (R-Canfield) helped pass legislation to prohibit schools, colleges and universities from mandating individuals receive a vaccine that has not received full approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration.
The bill also prohibits discrimination against those who have not received an unapproved vaccine.
Cutrona has been at the forefront in the Legislature of advancing common sense measures to protect public health and the public’s right to health freedom. He said the measure, which he helped craft, is a balanced approach to protect the rights of Ohioans.
“We don’t want students and staff being forced to receive a vaccine that hasn’t been fully vetted and fully approved by the FDA,” Cutrona said. “It’s unfortunate this law is necessary but I’m grateful we were able to get it done.”
The measure, part of House Bill 244, now heads to the governor.
