Opponents of Colorado vaccine bill plan rally ahead of House hearing on Sunday

Opponents of a vaccine bill scheduled for a hearing in the House on Sunday are planning a rally against the legislation, which they say will “push more liability-free vaccines on children,” including flu shots and any potential coronavirus vaccine.

Concerned Colorado is among the groups planning the rally, which will be held at 10 a.m. on the east steps of the Capitol. The vaccine bill, which has passed the Senate, is scheduled to get a House hearing at noon.

If passed, the legislation, which aims to increase Colorado’s notoriously low vaccination rates, would make it harder for people to claim nonmedical exemptions. The fight over the bill has ramped up in recent days with Republicans opposing it using stall tactics to slow down the legislation.
