The legislation is sponsored by Rep. Robert Spendlove.
State and local governments would not be allowed to force Utahns to get the vaccine, if the bill passes the House, Senate and is signed by Gov. Spencer Cox.
Under the measure, the governor, the legislature, courts, educators including school districts, cities, and counties would also be banned from requiring people to get coronavirus vaccines.
The state currently does not require, but does encourage everyone get the COVID-19 vaccine when they're eligible.
The bill would not apply to private businesses, which could require vaccinations for employees.
If passed, the bill would expire on July 1, 2024.
The 2021 legislative session is scheduled to end on March 5.
