COLUMBUS – State Rep. Jennifer Gross (R-West Chester) today issued the following statement regarding House Bill 248, her legislation known as the Vaccine Choice and Anti-Discrimination Act:

“In light of recent proponent testimony, I wanted to emphasize that House Bill 248 is a Freedom Bill. The purpose of H.B. 248 is to protect medical choice and medical freedom. I also want to clarify that H.B. 248 does not prohibit mandatory vaccines – instead, the bill allows for all individuals to have three exemptions to all vaccines. In addition, the bill authorizes an individual to bring a civil action if the individual believes a violation has occurred. I will continue advocating for this critical legislation as hearings proceed in the House Health Committee.”
