This bill feels like the problem it is addressing has passed, but that is only because we are all over the pandemic. Fake Vaccination Cards is still a problem, no matter if the disease is Covid or not. And, by the way, Covid is still around.
The House last week passed House Bill 302 by a vote of 35-6. Five of the no votes are expected, from the downstate troglodytes who still think leeches are the go-to medical cure. They were joined by Democrat Sean Lynn. That’s going to require some explanation.

Bill sponsor Representive Paul Baumbach: “This afternoon the Delaware House passed House Bill 302, which clarifies that in Delaware, it is illegal to falsify a vaccination card, any and all vaccination records. This is so important, for our schools and colleges. My goal is that no one is ever charged with this crime, that by passing HB 302, this becomes a bright line that no one will cross. Good public health policy saves lives.”
Faking a vaccination card is now a Forgery in the Second Degree, a class G felony.
