Database Tracking Without Your Consent

Database Tracking Without Your Consent

Database Tracking Without Your Consent Should Worry Moms

Currently, the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) has a database, called Kidsnet, and your child’s information is there forever without your consent. This database has all RI resident minor children enrolled in it, and it’s likely you’ve never heard of it. Why is that?

First, it is a robust database tracking things well beyond what you may want tracked, and leave you wondering why such a database needs to be held within the RIDOH.

For instance, it records who lives in the home with the child, and it also tracks blood specimen from birth. Since when is a signature or voluntary consent not needed for DNA data storage? It tracks if you’ve ever enrolled in programs like WIC or Early Intervention.

Mothers may be especially unimpressed to find out that they are tracking if the child was born vaginally, or by c-section. A mother’s level of education, and whether or not the mother was married at time of time of birth are fields in this database.

Is this the kind of data tracking that we want to happen without our consent or approval?

The icing on the cake to this Kidsnet is you cannot delete the file. RIDOH will not remove it regardless of your request. You may only block your child’s file— so that only the RIDOH can see it, and not other signed in accounts.

RIDOH will continue to track and look at your file, while your objections fall on deaf ears. Want to block your file? Well, they go out of their way to make that inconvenient. You need to call the RIDOH then have your doctor witness you signing a form in their office.

We are in the 21st century, using complex databases tracking data without consent, and yet you can not use a online portal or notarized letter to request that our children’s information is blocked. According to the RIDOH, we must call then wait to sign at doctors office to block our child’s data. An electronic file that we should be able to have completely removed and deleted from the system.

Legislation H5541 has been introduced this year, and has a hearing date scheduled for Mar 13th at Rhode Island State House. This legislation expands the Kidsnet database to all adults in RI as part of the National Adult Immunization Plan.

It renames the database Rhode Island Child and Adult Immunization Registry (RICAIR). This database will be set to automatically enroll all adults residing in the Ocean State. This expansion of data mining without consent will now be for every Rhode Island resident no matter the age. When RI has an inflated budget that over spends beyond our revenue, why are we even considering putting more tax dollars to bureaucratic control for something we don’t have an actual need for especially considering the recent UHIP disaster.

National Adult Immunization Plan is an actual plan from HHS, and Goal 3 is increase community demand for adult vaccinations. Goal 4  Foster innovation in adult vaccine development and vaccination-related technologies. This database bill falls into that plan. Do you feel you need multiple more vaccines as an adult? Just a few months ago the FDA approved the HPV vaccine to be expanded to age 45, do you want to be bugged about getting a HPV vaccine? There seems to be a pattern with RI Dept of Health, moving forward with choices that are dollar driven and not driven by a need or want of the RI residents. Rhode Island does not have epidemics for anything a vaccine is available for.

If you don’t want to be automatically enrolled in a government database that you can not delete your file from then please oppose bill H5541. Please attend the hearing at 4:00pm on Wednesday the 13th at the Rhode Island State House. Citizens are encouraged to testify in person in room 101 or submit written testimony to the committee.

Why does the RI Dept of Health want to track us?

Why does the RI Dept of Health want to track us?

This winter, the Rhode Island Department of Health has introduced legislation via Rhode Island lawmakers to track the complete medical records of every person in our state. This RIDOH Registry would extend our current mandatory tracking system from all minors to all adults as well. House Bill 7882 and Senate Bill 2530 would let the RIDOH legally data mine the personal medical information of every adult and child in Rhode Island.

If H-7882 and S-2530 are passed, the Department of Health will track all sensitive and private medical information for all people in our state. RIDOH will have unrestricted knowledge of medications we are taking, medical procedures we have had, pregnancies, counseling services, mental health, and all medical choices we have made.

There is no opt-out of the registry. If passed, it will be mandatory. According the language of the bills, “Any person may opt out of the disclosure of their immunization status by contacting the department of health.” What about the rest of the registry? This bill violates the right to informed consent as well as privacy. We as human beings, have the right to say “no” to imposed data collection of our personal records.

KIDSNET, our current no-opt-out, mandatory tracking system for all minors in Rhode Island, even collects our children’s Social Security numbers. RIDOH does not list the “participating programs” that have access to the Social Security numbers and private medical records of our children. Furthermore, “parental consent to include children’s data is not required.”

Any tracking system should always respect the human right to informed consent. KIDSNET should be an opt-in-only system that requires a signature in order for data to be collected in the first place. Meanwhile, these draconian adult registry bills should be permanently put to rest.

These alarmingly invasive bills violate our core right to privacy. They additionally raise several deeply concerning questions about the RIDOH:

Why does our state health department want to track our personal data? How does the RIDOH justify legislation that removes the basic tenant of informed consent? Once our data is collected, what recourse would citizens have to protect our information from hackers? How would people ensure that their private medical choices will not be used against them in the future? Does the RIDOH expect taxpayers to fund this massive and costly registry?

In 2017, voices of all kinds began to speak out with their truths. Individuals are joining the collective chorus of outrage as we declare, “Enough is enough.” The time is ripe for Rhode Islanders of all races, genders, cultures, abilities and backgrounds to claim our inherent rights to privacy, choice and informed consent for ourselves and our children.

If we wish to maintain our core freedoms, we must all tell our lawmakers that we do not want to be forced into a mandatory tracking system by our government. House Bill 7882 will be heard by the Health, Education and Welfare Committee in Room 101 of the Rhode Island State House within the next few weeks. Let our representatives know that Rhode Islanders do not wish to be forcefully tracked by the Rhode Island Department of Health or any other government agency.

RI Dept of Health, waging a war against your rights.

RI Dept of Health, waging a war against your rights.

There appears to be a war being waged across the U.S., aimed at our youngest and most vulnerable and also our health care and child-care workers, regarding mandatory vaccination. Now there is narrative starting to be put forward that unvaccinated adults are costing the economy billions of dollars a year. This is all based on the premise, one that is repeated as a mantra by those in the medical community, that vaccines are safe and effective and that the science is settled. But what if that premise is false?
I never really questioned vaccine safety and I thought I understood the reasoning of why vaccines worked. I had been in a pre-med curriculum in my undergraduate study and my children were vaccinated in the 1980s when they were young. I was a practicing R.N. for many years and I received a number of vaccines during that time and I administered many. I was injured by the hepatitis vaccine series in 1992-93, but no one was very interested in reporting or tracking that injury. I began studying vaccination in 2009 when I was out on a disability leave of absence.

There is an explosion of vaccine-related injuries occurring across our country. There is something very, very wrong happening to our children: Many are suffering from allergies, neurological and immune-system damage. In 1986, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Board was formed by Congress at the behest of the vaccine manufacturers because they were being inundated with lawsuits from parents of children that had been injured by vaccines and this was seriously affecting their profit margins.

This legislation made the pharmaceutical companies and the administrators of the vaccines not liable for injuries. The onus was put on the parents of an injured children to present their case to this “Vaccine Court.” Many cases are not heard. The process can take years and many of these plaintiffs are not compensated. The taxpayer is the one that bears the financial burden of compensation for these injuries and not the pharmaceutical companies. One might ask, if there is no liability to the manufacturer or deliverer, what incentive is there to make safe vaccines backed by long trials with true control groups. and preferably ones that are a double-blind study? Since the inception of this compensation program, $3.6 billion has been awarded due to vaccine injury. Dr. Alvin Moss told West Virginia’s Senate Education Committee on March 18 that in 2016, $250 million was awarded to 800 individuals, or around $300,000 per individual.

In Rhode Island, children are required to have 19-22 vaccines in order to attend pre-kindergarten, child-care, or day care centers. There are four more added to attend kindergarten. Seventh graders have to have received all the aforementioned, another two, and now the HPV vaccine has been added to the schedule. The R.I. Department of Health has mandated the series of HPV vaccines even though the virus is not communicable in a classroom setting; this law became effective in July 2015. There is a religious exemption in place but many parents are not aware of it, and pediatricians and the schools are not forthcoming in disclosing this. There really is little informed consent.

The HPV vaccine, particularly Merck’s Gardasil, which was FDA approved in 2006, has proved to be very problematic here at home and worldwide. It has had a long history of controversy due to adverse side effects and some fatalities, and governmental policymakers have covered up and/or ignored the facts. As of January 2014, some 52 countries had included the HPV vaccine in their national vaccination programs, and since then over half have dropped out because of an array of debilitating medical conditions that have arisen since its introduction.

In the U.S., there have been 59,092 adverse reactions reported since Gardasil and Cervarix, the HPV vaccine that was formulated by GlaxcoSmithKline and approved by the FDA in 2009, have been introduced. Of these adverse events, there have been 1,727 reports of disability, 6,388 listed as serious events, 9,177 events where the individual has not recovered, and 315 deaths reported by February 2017 via the FDA’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System data. It is also estimated by many doctors and researchers that less than 10 percent of vaccine injuries are ever reported to the FDA system. Reported in sanevax.org, the VAERS reports of Acute Disseminated Encephalomyletis have increased over 1,000 percent since the introduction of HPV vaccines, infertility rates increased 790 percent, reports of blindness increased 188 percent, and spontaneous abortions by 270 percent. Other reactions include seizures, strokes, heart problems, paralysis, speech problems, pancreatitis, sensory disorder, short term memory loss and debilitating pain. Dr. Bernard Dalbergue, a former Merck employee, predicts that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time and it will be shown to have wreaked havoc, “destroyed lives and even killed and only to have served no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers.”

There are 100 types of human papillomavirus. Of these, 15 high-risk types are known to cause virtually all forms of cervical cancer. Two of these types (16 and 18) are believed to cause 70 percent of these cases and 30 percent of cervical cancers are caused by other strains. The Gardasil vaccine was formulated to provide protection to these two aforementioned high-risk strains and two low-risk strains (6 and 11). It was found that women were more susceptible to other strains of the HPV virus after receiving the Gardasil series.

Maybe, as Dr. Suzanne Humphries, an internist, nephrologist, researcher and renowned author says, “nature hates a vacuum,” so Merck formulated Gardasil 9, which was approved in December 2014. It supposedly provides protection against seven types of the high-risk strains. This FDA approval was granted without consultation with the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee, which is responsible for studying and evaluating data concerning the safety, efficacy, and appropriate use of vaccines. The FDA bypassed this committee’s safety assessment because it found “no concerns or controversial issues” to the introduction of this new formulation.

If one looks at the 21-page vaccine insert in the Gardasil 9 package, it can be noted that Merck more than doubled the aluminum adjuvant to its formulation. Aluminum is a proven neurotoxin. There have been five more antigens added. These are big differences. Why was it given a carte blanche by the FDA? We also see on the insert that the rate of adverse events to the Gardasil 9 was 2.3 percent of those in the trial — information that was collated during a 48-month follow-up. The cervical cancer diagnosis rate in the U.S. is 7.9 per 100,000. You don’t have to be that astute to realize that a 2.3 percent rate of adverse events from Merck’s trial (death, disability, hospitalization, a congenital abnormality, a life threatening event) equates to 2,300/100,000. Also, the insert shows us that in Merck’s trial, the subset of women who received an injection of the Gardasil 9 within 30 days of becoming pregnant miscarried or had a stillborn at a rate of 27.4 percent.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics regarding infant mortality in 2006 list miscarriages and fetal deaths here in the U.S. as .605 percent. How is this vaccine considered safe? That is an alarming disparity! If doctors and patients and health departments were aware of these statistics, would this vaccine be a recommended course of action for protection against these strains of HPV? Keep in mind that Dr. Diane Harper, who was the lead researcher in Merck’s clinical trials for their Gardasil and GSK’s Cervarix, tells us that 95 percent of all HPVs are cleared spontaneously by the body’s immune system and of the 5 percent that progress, there is ample time to protect and treat pre-cancers and early stage cancers with regular gynecological checkups. The HPV vaccine prevents infection of those strains; it does not prevent cervical cancer. Harper also brings up a very valid point that there has been no data offered to show that Gardasil remains effective for more than five years.

There seems to be another inconvenient truth. If a woman has one of these HPV high-risk strains in her body when she receives the vaccine, she can get cervical cancer from the vaccine. Does it potentiate the existing HPV strain? I’d consider that a negative efficacy rate. Testing for HPV infection before administration of the vaccine is not cost effective. Also if someone has received the original Gardasil vaccine and completes the series with the new Gardasil 9 vaccine, the response rate is significantly reduced.

A truly independent agency is urgently required to undertake studies on the content of contaminating DNA and RNA, retroviruses and metal toxicants and other potential contaminants in the HPV vaccines.

No child or young person should have to suffer any assault to their health because they or their parent(s) trusted the medical community and our regulatory agencies. If a treatment or medicine or vaccine can result in injury or death, there must be informed consent. In regard to the HPV vaccine, Harper has said, “The decision to be vaccinated with this vaccine must be the woman’s or the parent(s) of the young person and not the physician’s or any board of health, as the vaccination contains personal risk that only that person or parent(s) can value.” Knowledge of the inherent risks needs to be shared, without prejudice, by the medical and academic communities, departments of health and child services, regulatory agencies and in independent forums. The insert in the vaccine package needs to be made public, not an abbreviated form the doctor might hand out to the patient or parent(s) if questioned or requested. Religious and philosophical exemptions must always be in place. When research findings and the public outcry threaten the immunization policy, when conflicts of interest and compromised regulatory agencies have been exposed, then those in position of power must react with integrity and courage. Rhode Islanders, it is time to get informed, speak out and let your elected representatives know your concerns. Many R.I. citizens are coming together via www.NOHPVmandateRI.com to fight against the HPV vaccine mandate.
