The Governor also took the opportunity to express her opposition to vaccine passports.  "I strongly oppose vaccine passports and I believe that we must take a stand as a State against them, which I intend to do either through legislation or executive action.  I will also continue to do my part to educate and encourage Iowans about the importance of being vaccinated, but as I said, we will take action either through the legislature or with executive action against vaccine passports."

The Governor added that she encourages all Iowans to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
