Penn. Invoice would come with vaccine uncomfortable side effects in insurance protection – business insurance
Pennsylvania lawmakers tabled a bill on Tuesday to amend the Workers Compensation Act to cover adverse vaccine-related events.
The partisan bill H.B. 2135 was introduced and sponsored by 12 House Republicans and referred to the House Working and Industry Committee.
The amendment sets out compensation requirements for any worker who received the vaccine as part of employment, including a worker who was required to receive the vaccine as a condition of employment.
A record of adverse events related to a vaccine that has been reported to the employer or is otherwise known to the employer must be documented and reported to the General Assembly by May 1st.
The draft law intends to compile and publish these in annual reports on the ministry's employee compensation program.
