    Amends GS 130A-414.1 to add subsections (3a), (3b), and (3c), regarding COVID-19 vaccination status and a patient’s right to healthcare and transplant eligibility, to the list of legislative findings and declaration of policy regarding organ transplants for persons with mental or physical disabilities. Makes corresponding changes to the statute. 

    Creates new GS 130A-414.5 (Organ transplant discrimination on the basis of COVID-19 vaccination status prohibited), which prohibits covered health care entities from discriminating solely on the basis of an individual’s COVID-19 vaccination status and lists six prohibited activities related to organ donation and transplants. Requires a covered health care entity to make reasonable modifications to allow individuals who refuse COVID-19 vaccination to access transplant services.
