Friendly reminder that under HIPPA, your vaccination status is private.

The rule is simple, HIPAA protects EVERY American from disclosing ANY of their health records to ANYONE.
Their point? That medical privacy laws protect their vaccination status, and it’s illegal for any business to ask as a condition of anything.
They are very, very wrong. So, I thought today I’d clear up some common misconceptions about HIPAA specifically and medical privacy more generally.
