New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu signed a “medical freedom” law this week, banning public places from compelling residents of his state to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
“Every person has the natural, essential, and inherent right to bodily integrity, free from any threat or compulsion by government to accept an immunization,” the bill read.
The new law doesn’t supersede a state law requiring about seven vaccines for entry into public schools in the state…But the COVID-19 vaccine is not on that list.
Exemptions to the new law include state psychiatric hospitals, county nursing homes or prisons.
Almost 50% of New Hampshire’s population is fully vaccinated.
