Arizona Gov. Ducey bans vaccine passports

PHOENIX – Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order on Monday banning vaccine passports and preventing local governments from requiring residents to provide their COVID-19 vaccine status in order to receive service or enter a specific area.

According to the order, state agencies, counties, cities, and towns cannot issue a measure requiring residents to provide documentation of their COVID-19 vaccination status to enter a business, building, or area in order to receive a government service, permit, or license.

“The residents of our state should not be required by the government to share their private medical information,” Ducey said in a statement on April 19. “While we strongly recommend all Arizonans get the COVID-19 vaccine, it’s not mandated in our state — and it never will be. Vaccination is up to each individual, not the government.”
