House Passes Act to Fund Fed Vaccine Database
Eighty House Republicans voted with the Democrats to Tuesday to pass the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act, which if passed by the Senate and made into law, would fund a federal vaccination database.
The bill, also known as H.R. 550, will grant the federal government the authority to appropriate $400 million in taxpayer dollars to fund “immunization system data modernization and expansion.”
The immunization system is defined 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’s text states. . . .
“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.
Rep. Byron Donalds, (R-Fla.), who also voted “no,” cited fiscal concerns, while at the same time, saying that the legislation only serves to expand the power of the federal government.
