WASHINGTON, DC – On November 30th, 80 House Republicans joined Democrats in voting to approve the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act, which will finance a government COVID jab database if enacted by the Senate and signed into law.
As outlined in the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act, also known as H.R. 550, $400 million in taxpayer funds would be utilized by the government to enable “immunization system data modernization and expansion.”
Upon deeper reading of the bill, this “immunization system” was 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 language specifies an increase of the CDC’s and the Public Health Service’s capabilities – a.k.a., an increase in government power and reach. Furthermore, the bill also affords the opportunity for state and local health departments, along with public and private health care providers, to hand health records directly over to the federal government.
Democrat Rep. Ann Kuster, who is the main sponsor of the bill, dressed the effort as being a means to facilitate a reminder for “patients when they are due for a recommended vaccine” and hone in on areas with low COVID jab rates to “ensure equitable distribution of vaccines.”
Outside of the 80 total House Republicans who voted to move the bill forward, four Republicans – Reps. Larry Bucshon, James Baird, David McKinley, and Brian Fitzpatrick – cosponsored the bill itself.
Republican Rep. Mary Miller, who was one of the 130 Republicans who voted against H.R. 550, said that the spirit of this bill is to “track” those who haven’t gotten a COVID jab so that they can “be targeted and forced to comply with Biden’s crazy ‘global vaccination’ vision.”
“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?” she said.
“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,” Miller continued. “This was clearly a legislative tool to enforce vaccine mandates and force their Orwellian rules onto those who do not comply.”
Rep. Miller added that “the government is not your doctor” and that if the federal government is handed this sort of information on average Americans, then there are a litany of ways the government can “potentially use that information against you – purposefully and accidentally.”
Republican Rep. Byron Donalds shared similar sentiments to that of Rep. Miller but added that this bill is another example of the “Democrats’ habitual pattern of reckless and wasteful spending.”
“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.”
At least one Republican is vocal on the attempted governmental overreach put forth in this legislation.
Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a “vaccine.” According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it’s intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
