Today at 1:30m. A VAX Mandate alert was issued by several Republicans when a Select Interim Committee suddenly announced a hearing to push more vaccine mandates on all “Post secondary Schools” in Nevada, in other words, all Community Colleges and Universities.

Only a handful of Elected State Lawmakers will vote to tighten and expand vaccine mandates for all college staff and students. A list of the committee members is below.

All the Republicans on the 12 member committee, except Assemblywoman Jill Dickman, are either retiring or leavings office next year. But with the number of Republicans and Democrats evenly split, unless Republicans vote with Dems, any such vax mandates should fail to obtain a majority.

The Legislature refused to address any such mandates in the regular sessions earlier this year or in the special session last month. There is no set location for this meeting. The meeting is entirely online. But folks can watch it live online and call in.

Repub Candidate for Governor Joey Gilbert issued the following statement to 360 News:

 “It’s overwhelmingly something that the majority the state is against just poll the teachers look at what’s happening nobody wants this everybody thinks it’s tremendously unfair but once again it’s a dog and pony show where they’ll hear comments and I’ll take information submitted but they’ve already made the decision it’s a predetermined outcome they’re going to push it through like they’ve done everything they don’t care what the public has to say they’re not listening to anybody and it’s unbelievably unfair and cruel to do what they’re doing and it needs to stop and I hope that there’s lawsuits brought and that there’s legal action taken against this unconstitutional jamming of mandates and treatment options down peoples throats.  No one wants this there’s no public health emergency, this is total government overreach and it’s unacceptable.”

Legislative Counsel’s Digest:
Existing law requires the State Board of Health to adopt regulations governing the control
of communicable diseases in this State, including regulations specifically relating to the control
of such diseases in educational institutions. (NRS 441A.120) Existing regulations prohibit, with
certain exceptions, a person from attending a university until he or she submits to the university
proof of immunity to certain communicable diseases. (NAC 441A.755) Section 4 of this
regulation makes this requirement applicable to state colleges and community colleges on July 1,
2024. Section 3 of this regulation prohibits a person from attending a postsecondary educational
institution until he or she submits proof of immunity to COVID-19, effective upon the
submission of this regulation to the Secretary of State.
Existing regulations require the Division of Public and Behavioral Health of the
Department of Health and Human Services to establish the required immunization schedule for
the admission of a student. (NAC 441A.755) Section 3 removes that requirement. Instead,
section 2 of this regulation adopts by reference certain publications of the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, and
section 3 requires the proof of immunity submitted by a student to demonstrate that the student
has acquired immunity in accordance with those publications.
Existing regulations exempt any student who is enrolled in a program of distance
education and who does not attend a class on campus from immunization requirements. (NAC
441A.755) Section 3 requires a student who does not attend class on campus but attends a club,
sport or other extracurricular activity on campus to demonstrate the required immunity.
Existing regulations authorize certain persons to apply for a variance from a regulation of
the State Board of Health. (NAC 439.200-439.280) Sections 1 and 3 of this regulation provide
that any person who is required to submit proof of immunity to certain communicable diseases to attend a postsecondary educational institution is ineligible to request a variance from a regulation of the Board relating to that requirement
