There is a medical privacy law in the USA. It mandates that PHI Personal Health Information must be protected and kept private.
Vaccine Passports scream your medical status to the world around you. It seems to me this violates HIPPA.
Most of us believe that our medical and other health information is private and should be protected, and we want to know who has this information. The Privacy Rule, a Federal law, gives you rights over your health information and sets rules and limits on who can look at and receive your health information. The Privacy Rule applies to all forms of individuals’ protected health information, whether electronic, written, or oral. The Security Rule is a Federal law that requires security for health information in electronic form.
Only you or your personal representative has the right to access your records.
A health care provider or health plan may send copies of your records to another provider or health plan only as needed for treatment or payment or with your permission.
The Privacy Rule does not require the health care provider or health plan to share information with other providers or plans.
HIPAA gives you important rights to access – PDF your medical record and to keep your information private.
I don’t want the world to know if I have a medical condition the prevents my getting the vaccination. Nor, for that matter, do I want to be telling the world I DID get the vaccination. It is MY private information.
Seems to me that vaccine passports are illegal.
