The ‘No Child Vax Mandate’’ and sign the petition event to end what organizers believe is medical health discrimination in Clark County is scheduled to take place Saturday from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
A group of Clark County citizens frustrated with Gov. Jay Inslee’s vaccine mandates and other COVID-related actions that have been taken in the area and throughout Washington state have planned a Saturday rally to raise awareness to their efforts.
The “No Child Vax Mandate’’ and sign the petition event to end what organizers believe is medical health discrimination in Clark County is scheduled to take place Saturday (Oct. 30) from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
Area residents are invited to line both sidewalks along SR 503 (NE 117th Ave.) from NE 119th St. to 4th Plain (SR 500 in Orchards).
A pre-protest event is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. in the parking lot of Faith Center, located at 11608 NE 107th Way (Faith Center is not an organizer of the event so interested parties are asked not to contact Faith Center staff). Speakers including Heidi St. John, candidate for U.S. Representative in the 3rd Congressional District, and Rep. Vicki Kraft (Republican, 17th District) are among the speakers scheduled to appear according to event organizers.
Organizers ask those who participate to express messages such as:
• No child vax mandate
• Stop discrimination against the unvax’d
• Say “No’’ to health medical discrimination
• Zero children have died from COVID in Clark County
• Injustice for some is injustice for all
• We’re not anti-vax, we’re anti-discrimation & tyranny
“We’re asking that people consider not bringing more controversial political signs or any signs with profanity or signs representing profane messages,’’ organizers said in a statement.
The event will include multiple locations along SR 503 where area residents can sign the petition. The petition supports the establishment of “an ordinance prohibiting all mandates within Clark County that discriminate against citizens regarding their health status and/or that violates existing rights to health information privacy.’’
A prior petition, signed by more than 4,000 area residents, was presented to the members of the Clark County Council. The members declined to take any action on the previous petition.
