Iowans will gather at the Iowa Capitol on Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. in an effort to be heard one final time prior to the COVID vaccine passport bill being signed. The bill prohibits governmental entities from issuing and utilizing COVID vaccine passports, it discourages private businesses from doing so and it allows health care facilities to utilize COVID vaccine passports.

“We want Gov. Reynolds to know that we support her in vetoing the passport bill and issue an executive order that protects ALL Iowans in ALL circumstances,” says the event’s Facebook page.
