The Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act received enough votes to pass in the House. One of the aims of this bill is to fund this infrastructure. Another is to allow for the sharing of immunization records among medical organizations and associated government agencies. This would increase the ability to keep track of vaccines being administered. Those who voted against this bill argued that it potentially could inform the government on who the unvaccinated are.

From Newsmax:

The result of the provision expands the capabilities of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Public Health Department in sharing health data with the federal government.

Rep. Mary Miller, R-Ill., one of the 130 Republicans who voted “no,” told Breitbart on Wednesday that the legislation would enable the federal government to “track” unvaccinated Americans.

“These systems are designed to allow for the sharing of crucial information and maintenance of records. Do we really trust the government to protect our medical records?” Miller said.

Miller noted that the legislation provides blue states millions in taxpayer dollars to enforce vaccine mandates. The government may also develop “public-private partnerships” to help with “technical assistance, training, and related implementation support.”

Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., who also voted “no,” said the legislation only serves to expand the power of the federal government and trample individual rights. He also cited fiscal concerns.

Religious accomodations from your employer would have the same effect – that is, put you on a “list” for further threats and harassment. Freedom and privacy are dead and are not coming back. And remember…whatever the gubment can’t do the corporate “government” is more that happy to fill in the gaps.

I heard a woman on the Todd Starnes or Mark Levin Show yesterday evening that she had called to complain to her congressional representatives about the Omicron uproar and that she was told by a congressional staffer “I understand your concern and we’re tracking it….*pause* Tracking what? The vaccine rate status, What you have a database? Yes, we’re tracking it. YOU HAVE A DATABASE OF WHO HAS THE VVACCINE AND WHO DOESN’T…THE GOVERNMENT AND YOU’RE… Read more »

What’s next, a requirement for the unvaxxed to wear a yellow patch on their clothing at all times?

If you’re seriously comparing COVID-19 restrictions to the restrictions placed on the Jewish people by the Nazis, fuck all the way off. Your comparison is anti Semitic and extremely offensive. It implies that being Jewish is on par with carrying a deadly disease – an age-old anti Semitic trope.

I’ve reported your comment. If the Admins have any decency at all, they’ll ban you.

For the decent folk on here (not A Proud Antisemite) this is why Shoah comparisons are so offensive:

XYZZY – From your linked article – “They have spurred extremism, denialist ways of thinking and science-scepticism(sp). They have led to more antisemitism.” Then – ”They encourage people to distrust experts and the democratic institutions they advise. This distrust causes grave harm when people refuse to take the measures that will protect them and others from COVID-19, illness, and death.” In the next paragraph, we have this quote from Dr. Wetzel. Was this quote delivered… Read more »

Here are the official votes on this:

Check how your Representative voted, then respond appropriately.

If they voted to pass, you can give them Hell – and encourage your friends and neighbors to give them more Hell.

If they voted “No” – praise them and encourage others to praise them.

We in the Commissariat need to know about this! We need to track the Boomers and other filthy capitalists that refuse to PROTECT THE SOCIAL ELITE by TAKING THE JAB!

It’s more “empirical data” for me to collect and put to use when our Chinese Communist overlords take control and heard you off to our “reeducation centers” !!!

rgr769

Yes, without this collected data you will never demonstrate your usefulness to our ChiCom overlords and become a valued member of the Party elite.

Don’t ask, cuz I ain’t tellin’.

So much for all that HIPPA law privacy/confidentiality of a person’s medical information.

Crenshaw votes for this?!?

Please tell me that is a mistake or there is something else in this bill that is so important it is worth voting yes.

Graybeard

OAM – you can read the bill itself at

https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/550/all-actions?overview=closed&q=%7B%22roll-call-vote%22%3A%22all%22%7D

IMHO, there is NOTHING in this bill worth voting for. IDK what Crenshaw was thinking.
We can try to find out through his office, tho’

As one of the thousands of individuals who had his PII hacked by the Chinese, when they hacked OPMs database of Security clearance info. I oppose this. Federal and State Governments do a piss poor job of protecting taxpayer info, and providing them the authority to collect additional PII and PHI is bull$hit.

Graybeard

100% agree.

I’ve spent most of my adult life in the IT industry (programmer & database administrator). I firmly maintain that there is no such thing as data security if the information is accessible through the internet.

I have had my PII exposed through some flaw in the state’s system. Fortunately I’ve not suffered any negative impact – yet.

If this manages to pass in the Senate and signed by Snuffy, lawsuits will be falling like autumn leaves.
