An Ohio bill that's been sent to the governor for consideration would block schools from mandating vaccines.

State Rep. Al Cutrona (R-Canfield) says the legislation would prohibit schools, colleges and universities from mandating people get a vaccine that has not received full approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration. The bill also prohibits discrimination against those who have not received an unapproved vaccine.

"We don't want students and staff being forced to receive a vaccine that hasn't been fully vetted and fully approved by the FDA," Cutrona said. "It's unfortunate this law is necessary, but I'm grateful we were able to get it done."

The measure, part of House Bill 244, now heads to the governor for consideration.

When it comes to the COVID-19 vaccines, they are being used under emergency use authorization from the FDA. Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna have asked for full FDA approval.
