Re: AB 1993 (COVID-19 vaccine and booster requirement for all CA employees and independent contractors)
Dear California Legislators,
On behalf of hundreds of physician and surgeon members of Physicians for Informed Consent and thousands of our health-freedom members, we oppose AB 1993.
AB 19931 is both immoral and unscientific. It is immoral because it proposes to legalize medical bullying in the workplace and unscientific because the COVID-19 vaccines have not been proven safer than COVID-19 infection and natural immunity in employees of all age groups and all workplaces.
Furthermore, the clinical trials have been the only settings in which the vaccination status of subjects/patients was closely monitored, and those trials did not detect enough COVID-19 deaths to measure a significant difference in mortality between vaccinated and unvaccinated patients despite observing tens of thousands of subjects. In addition, CDC data show that the COVID-19 mass vaccination program has had no measurable impact on COVID-19 mortality—see PIC’s attached educational document COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates: 20 Scientific Facts That Challenge the Assumptions.
We urge you to oppose AB 1993 as it is immoral, unscientific, unnecessary, and divisive.
