Wenstrup Introduces Legislation to Block Biden’s Vaccine Mandates

CINCINNATI – Congressman Brad Wenstrup, D.P.M., (R-Ohio) introduced H.R. 5908, the Stop Vaccine Mandates Act, to block President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates on federal employees and federal contractors.

“I have been vaccinated. I have been at the forefront of nationwide efforts to educate Americans about the safety and efficacy of our FDA-approved vaccines. I have even traveled across southern and southwestern Ohio to administer the vaccine to my constituents,” said Congressman Wenstrup. “Whether or not to receive a vaccine is a decision that should be solely up to a patient and their trusted doctor, and the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate violates the doctor-patient relationship. I’m proud to lead this legislation to block the mandates and will continue to speak up for a COVID-19 mitigation strategy that will keep Americans safe and respect their personal decisions without jeopardizing their livelihoods or our economy.”

H.R. 5908, the Stop Vaccine Mandates Act, rescinds the Biden administration's vaccine mandate on federal employees and federal contractors. Read it here.

The legislation has been cosponsored by the following members of Congress: Rep. Barry Moore, Rep. Brian Mast, Rep. Jeff Duncan, Rep. John Rutherford, Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, Rep.
