MRNA vaccines — including the Covid shots — could be made illegal in Idaho under a radical new bill introduced by two female Republican lawmakers.
The bill, from state Sen Tammy Nichols and state Rep Judy Boyle, would impose misdemeanor charges against anyone who administers a shot using the mRNA tech. A well-meaning doctor could face up to six months in jail and/or a fine of $1,000.
The bill was met with derision on Twitter from healthcare professionals, who argued that the move was buying into conspiracies about the shots.
One of the main arguments against the shots made by the Idaho Republicans is that they were developed at such an accelerated timeline that they could have sidestepped safety and efficacy standards, a point often used by antivaxers to discount the shots.
