Republican State Sen. Jason Schultz advanced a bill prohibiting daycare centers, K-12 schools and postsecondary educational institutions from requiring COVID-19 vaccinations. The bill passed along party lines out of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

In his closing comments, Schultz said the bill protects the rights of Iowans — parents and children — to make the decision for themselves in an atmosphere in which it has been proven children are at “practically no risk.”


“You find that out in every large public gathering where adults have just quit wearing masks because they know it’s useless,” Schultz said.

Democrat senators objected to the bill partially due to what Sen. Joe Bolkcom called diminishing confidence in vaccines among Iowans.

“We need to put to rest that the COVID vaccine is an effective and safe vaccine,” Schultz said. “It is an attempt that didn’t work. So when it didn’t work the first time, the numbers didn’t change regardless — states that required the vaccine went up and states that didn’t require the vaccine went up. What was so eloquently called a first booster was actually just a second attempt, which you have to call experimental because they didn’t have any idea if it would work or not. The reason I know they didn’t know if it would work or not is because suddenly we came with the eloquently named second booster, which was actually the third attempt.

“Now we’re supposed to take the next booster, which is another attempt. They keep trying to do things — it doesn’t work. These things are not effective. The children are not at risk in the first place.”

Schultz later added that we should not be “damaging children” by telling them they cannot go to daycare or K-12 schools or postsecondary education “based on the political beliefs of authoritarians who want to force their belief in — well, it’s not science — their belief in just hive mindset. I move this bill because we have to move past this and we have to get past the semi-quasi science clergy who have turned what used to be a respected industry — the science industry — into more of a club to beat people over the head.”

  1. Very well stated. Thank you. Anyone that chooses to still keep getting jabbed time after time can keep receiving it, but to force others to take it makes absolutely NO sense. NONE.
