Orange County Supervisors Andrew Do and Don Wagner issued a joint statement opposing government-issued vaccine passports.
Each Supervisor holds that vaccinations should never be required to access government services and government must never discriminate against its citizens.
Supervisor Do said “This is America. Under no circumstances would or should we ever need a passport to live and get services within our community.”
Supervisor Wagner said “The science has not justified the indiscriminate lockdowns from the state. I also see no justification for a vaccine passport. It is no business of the government telling free citizens where they may travel and government must never discriminate against its citizens because of their vaccine status.”
Both Supervisors Do and Wagner would support the County in certifying an individual’s vaccine status if those adults got the vaccine through the County and only if the individual requests verification to keep their medical records updated.
Supervisor Do proudly serves the First District, which includes Santa Ana. Supervisor Wagner serves in the Third District, which includes Irvine.
