Published March 24, 2021

House Bill (HB) 10, the Religious Exemption Protection Act failed in the House Health Subcommittee.  

House Bill 13 is a bill to keep the state or state agency from mandating a vaccine for COVID-19.  

Tennessee Capitol Building in Nashville

That bill has also been tied up in the House with no action from the committee except to now kick the can to the Senate and see if they’ll take any action on it. And now, enter Senate Bill 187

SB 187 is the companion bill for HB 13 and is sponsored by Senator Janice Bowling, from Tullahoma.  

Bowling has amended SB 187 to include all of the protections of both HB 10 AND HB 13. 

Meaning, the bill would now both secure religious exemptions to vaccines and prevent the state from mandating a vaccine for COVID-19.  

To become law, every bill must have a companion bill in both the Senate and House chambers.  

And the bill must pass both chambers to become law and also receive a signature from the Governor. 

SB 187 is being heard in the Senate Health and Welfare Committee today, March 24th at 12:30 pm.   

To Support this Bill, Call And Email the Committee.

      It’s NOT a vaccine. It is not FDA approved. It is a trial and you and everyone else are the lab rats. Already there have been more than 4000 persons who have died, including some doctors and other health workers, from taking the “trial shot” and thousands more have irreversible dilapidating consequences and I could go on and on. You or any other governmental official or authority does not have the right or authority to mandate this. It’s great you seem to be fine but they (the scientists) don’t know themselves what the effects will be down the road in those who have been inoculated. All you have is hope that something irreversible doesn’t appear in your body at some point down the road. Too many unknowns for many many of us! We’re not stupid or dumb. We have done our research! You might want to do the same so you will have important information on what to do if you at some point need it.

    Thank God for the Polio Vaccine and the plethora of others that have been Mandated by the Government. I am OK if you can’t take the Covid Vaccine because of Health reasons but any other seem to defeat the purpose. I do respect the right for any American to decide not to take the Vaccine however, on the other hand if those that do not want the vaccine get sick the cost of care should not be on the taxpayer, if they should infect anyone else the transmitter should be liable for any costs including lost wages of the person infected. Why should I have to take on any additional costs or precautions because someone does not want the Free Vaccine. If these non vaccinated people want to sequester themselves some way such as never working, going to school, going out in public etc., that would work also. I just don’t want to be in an elevator with folks that have not tried to protect their fellow man–I don’t want to wear a damn mask because of a few– I don’t want to stand in a line 6″ apart–I want to go to a full stadium and watch sports, I want to go to concerts and movies etc., if that is selfish than I am. It’s like Taxes we all have to file–Right?? Remember one of the Commandments is “Thou Shall Not Kill” please don’t kill me. If we don’t stop it now the changes in the Virus will morph to something we can’t vaccinate for.

    Mandating a vaccine is just plain wrong. I have several multiple health issues and I do not need another by taking a vaccine that could possibly kill me. Every time I have to take medicine it is like playing Russian Roulette and it stinks. I never know how my body will react to it. People should be able to decide for themselves.
