Gov. Ricketts Opposes Vaccine Passports


LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement following news regarding the development of vaccine passport systems that would use the sensitive health information of Americans to limit their freedoms.


“Nebraska will not participate in any vaccine passport program,” said Gov. Ricketts.  “This concept violates two central tenets of the American system: freedom of movement and healthcare privacy.  Nebraska will take any necessary action to protect the private health information of our citizens and the freedoms we cherish.”
