FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky House has voted to prevent state and local governments and public colleges from requiring disclosure of COVID-19 immunization status.

The measure also would allow parents to opt out of a coronavirus vaccine for their children on the basis of “conscientiously held beliefs.”

The proposal won 71-22 House passage Thursday. It moves on to the Senate.

The bill was introduced more than two months ago, but it didn’t start advancing until this week. Its sponsors agreed to a more limited version that dropped a proposed ban on private employers from inquiring about the vaccination status of employees or customers.
