Sign-On Letter on Bill Criminalizing Falsified Vaccine Cards

The New York Civil Librties joined other civil rights, health care, and privacy advocates, public defenders, and health care providers urge Governor Kathy Hochul to veto S.4516-C/A.7536-B, which would make falsifying a COVID-19 vaccine card a class A misdemeanor and would create a new E felony for intentional alteration or destruction of “computer material” regarding COVID-19 vaccine provision. This bill will do nothing to stem the spread of COVID-19, but will further marginalize the very communities who have already borne the brunt of the pandemic. 

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
