House passes a bill that would establish a federal vaccination database

Congress just took a step in the direction of a federal vaccination database that, in theory, could be used to track and target those Americans who have chosen not to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Breitbart reports that the House on Tuesday passed a bill that would provide funding for this federal vaccination database. 

All House Democrats voted in favor of the bill, which is called the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act.

But, the sickening thing is that four House Republicans, including Reps. Larry Bucshon (R-IN), James Baird (R-IN), David McKinley (R-WV), and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) co-sponsored the bill, and some 80 House Republicans voted in favor of its passage.

H.R. 550

The Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act would allocate $400 million in taxpayer funds for the “modernization and expansion” of “immunization system data.”

The system is described as “a confidential, population-based, computerized database that records immunization doses administered by any health care provider to persons within the geographic area covered by that database.”

The bill would allow state and local health departments and public and private health care providers to share health data with the federal government. It also would allow the federal government to away with taxpayer money those states that participate in this system.

Rep. Ann Kuster (D-NH), the bill’s main sponsor, in promoting the bill, stated:

Immunization Information Systems (IIS) are secure, multi-faceted systems that allow for the sharing of crucial information and maintenance of records. These systems can allow providers to keep vaccines and supplies in stock, prevent over – or under – vaccination, remind patients when they are due for a recommended vaccine, and identify areas with low vaccination rates to ensure equitable distribution of vaccines.

True Republicans are sounding the alarm

Among those who did not vote with House Democrats to pass this bill was Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL).

Miller explained:

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? The bill’s author even bragged in her press release that these systems will help the government remind patients when they are due for a recommended vaccine and identify areas with low vaccination rates to ensure equitable distribution of vaccines. This was clearly a legislative tool to enforce vaccine mandates and force their Orwellian rules onto those who do not comply.

Another “no” vote, Rep. Byron Donald (R-FL), argued that the bill is a violation of the “fundamental right to medical privacy. He said:

This legislation would unnecessarily appropriate millions of taxpayer funds intended to expand bureaucracy in Washington. A database solely created to record and collect confidential vaccination information of Americans explicitly encroaches upon individuals’ fundamental right to medical privacy. As a fiscal conservative, I cannot in good faith support legislation that contributes to the Democrats’ habitual pattern of reckless and wasteful spending and the intrusive heavy hand of government.

It remains unclear whether the bill will make it through the U.S. Senate.
