yet nothing has been said about monitoring ALL the kids vax status in the USA..isn't that an infringement of privacy too?

Ridiculous! I recently registered my DD for kindergarten with a religious exemption in MO. Now suddenly I'm getting phone calls from the University of Missouri in conjunction with the CDC with "random, anonymous" surveys about our family's health and wellness practices. Coincidence? I think not! I politely told them both times that we're not interested in participating and please remove us from your list. Do they think I'm stupid? Well, of course they think I'm stupid, but you know what I mean!

most likely sent up a red flag, and your number got put in the pool with other 'noncompliers', and calling you is a way to get info from you on your way of living...NONE of their business at all

At my oldest son's first injections, the CPNP convinced us that it would be best to "opt in" to out states vaccine database that can be accessed by any doc in the state at any time...  Now I'm wondering if that info goes beyond the state.  (And if I should now "opt out!")

yes, call and tell them to remove your child from the state tracking registry...do you really want the state potentially knowing everything you do or your child does?  I just don't trust it..even when it came out in the 90's, i had my kids removed from it.

Are you automatically enrolled in the registry or do you have to choose to be in it? I don't want my child in something like that!

i believe it is now automatic enrollment no matter where you live...altho if you don't go to a dr, never brought your kid to one, had a homebirth, and don't have insurance, i don't think you'd get on the state registy...the state registry now has to give the feds, and schools access to this info too.  That's why its a good thing to get off that list.

Okay, so I searched, "Tennessee Vaccine Registry" and it brought up the Dept. of Health. Is that who I call to remove my child from the list?

Wouldn't that be against the PRivacy act of 1974? I think that is the year.

things have changed as far as vaccine tracking goes, and who can know what info...the gov wants to enroll ALL school children in a nat'l database, accessible by school nurses, and in some states, this is already linked up...the digest, Fiercepharma has the lowdown on what's going on..with the way things are changing with exemptions now, gov thinks it has the right to invasion of privacy, even in the matter of vaccines, and parental choice.
