Lawmakers Eye Special Session on Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccines

BOISE, Idaho — Republican state senators in Idaho are discussing the possibility of convening a special session to consider legislation to block three large health care providers from requiring their employees to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Senate Pro Tempore Chuck Winder said Monday that the senators will meet online Friday amid growing calls for a special session.

Primary Health Group, Saint Alphonsus Health System and St. Luke’s Health System last week announced the vaccine requirement ahead of the cold and flu season and as coronavirus variants spread in parts of the U.S.

More than 195,000 cases of coronavirus have been detected in Idaho since the pandemic began, and more than 2,000 people have died from COVID-19.
