Vaccines have played a vital role in maintaining the health and well being of our nation. We believe in vaccines. However, vaccines historically have gone through lengthy trials (average 9 years) before ever being mandated by a governing body in America. This has given scientists and medical professionals the necessary time to review all VAERS data thoroughly. Though Pfizer has been given FDA approval, it has done so in an extremely foreshortened time period and under enormous political pressure. Even now, all of the vaccines currently in use to fight COVID are showing themselves to not even fit the definition of a vaccine.
Considering none of the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines provide actual immunity to COVID as people who have taken them can still catch and spread the disease, it is questionable as to why these substances are still being defined as vaccines. Dr. Anthony Fauci has said that COVID infected people, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, carry the same viral load in their nose and throat. These injections have shown themselves to be useful in preventing serious illness due to COVID, which is wonderful, and anyone who feels comfortable taking any of these preventative medicines should be free to do so.
But MANDATING any of them under the current circumstances is completely unethical and even undermines the nations long acceptance of vaccines. As it stands, these mandatory “vaccines” are not stopping or even slowing the spread of COVID.
(745 ILCS 70/5) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 5305)
Sec. 5. Discrimination. It shall be unlawful for any person, public or private institution, or public official to discriminate against any person in any manner, including but not limited to, licensing, hiring, promotion, transfer, staff appointment, hospital, managed care entity, or any other privileges, because of such person’s conscientious refusal to receive, obtain, accept, perform, assist, counsel, suggest, recommend, refer or participate in any way in any particular form of health care services contrary to his or her conscience.

Constitutional Law/ Fourth Amendment:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
You, as a citizen of the United States and Illinois, have the right to not be injected with a substance that has unknown long-term effects. Our Constitution and laws allow us to be secure in our persons.
Does private business have the right to mandate a vaccine for their employees?
Both the Governor and President have taken to the idea that they “can’t tell private businesses what to do.” So, their reasoning goes, if a business mandates employees get vaccinated or be marginalized and loose their jobs, there is nothing they can do about it. This is a ludicrous argument. The government tells businesses what they can and can’t do all the time. For instance, there are laws against firing a woman because she is pregnant or a against a business refusing to serve people who have differing values.
If the President and Governor insist on this selective oversight, then any entity that mandates a COVID vaccine, all of which were rushed to use in an unprecedented and untested way, then they should bear full responsibility for any negative effects suffered by an employee who is forced to take it.
The government may have given drug companies immunity to a vaccine’s negative effects, but not private business and municipal governments. And because Governor Pritzker has threatened to withhold funding from schools and hospitals if they don’t force the vaccine on employees, then the state of Illinois should also be held responsible for any negative health effects suffered from taking the vaccine.
Below is an example of a religious exemption letter that exempts an Illinois employee from mandated vaccination and testing. If you have similar or other religious beliefs, or conscientious convictions (as defined by the Health Care Right of Conscience Act), you should draft and sign a letter of your own to tender to your employer as soon as possible. Be sure to follow any procedural requirements they have for submitting your exemption.
There is no requirement that the letter comes from an attorney or clergy. It does not need to be notarized. You don’t need any of the parts in this example that discuss the law or the executive orders. All you need is your signed statement of belief.
What is if the utmost importance is that the statement of your religious belief or conscientious objection be sincere, unique to you, and comport with the Act’s definition of a religious belief or conscientious objection. Revise and improve the below example belief statement as you see fit. This particular belief statement may be true for many Christians, but put it into your own words. Do not include factual objections that can be controverted in court, such as whether a vaccine is fully FDA approved or that it has certain side effects as the reason for your objection. Keep your belief statement confined to your opinion of religious belief or similar conscientious objection.
