  • Make THREE phone Calls. Senator Crowley (sponsor of the bill)  home 4017258526     politely ask her to withdraw her bill, that it intrudes on your medical privacy and circumvents informed consent. Senate President  Ruggerio  office 4012226655  Say the same, and add that the RIDOH has already shown to not be trustworthy with patient data- that they shouldn’t be allowed to collect more private citizen data elements. Last one is your personal Senator. Say the same as above and add you want them to Oppose this bill if it comes to a vote. You can look up your senator at vote.sos.ri.gov
  • Sign the petition and share on your social media. With this link Database.NOHPVmandateRI.com

HPV vaccine on Trial

HPV vaccine on Trial

HPV vaccine on Trial is the name of a book published with three authors from NY. Two of those authors are lawyers. This book dives into the studies done on the vaccine and so much more.

We can get this important book of data in the hands of each health committee member in Rhode Island on both the house and senate side. We need YOU to help do that. Please donate to help this effort www.gifts.nohpvmandateri.com

With a $30 donation ~ we can get TWO of these books into legislator hands and give you Common Sense Medicine; Restoring the Patient/Physician relationship by Jeff Danby. (we can only ship to USA addresses for this additional free book)

commonsense

That’s THREE books for $30!

donate-now-heart-speech-bubble_138893771

Here is a summary of the book itself

  • The HPV Vaccine on Trial is a shocking tale, chronicling the global efforts to sell and compel this alleged miracle. The book opens with the vaccine’s invention, winds through its regulatory labyrinths, details the crushing denial and dismissal of reported harms and deaths, and uncovers the enormous profits pharma and inventors have reaped. Authors Holland, Mack Rosenberg, and Iorio drill down into the clinical trial data, government approvals, advertising, and personal accounts of egregious injuries that have followed in countries as far-flung as Japan, Australia, Colombia, India, Ireland, the U.K. and Denmark. The authors have written an unprecedented exposé about this vaunted vaccine.Written in plain language, the book is for everyone concerned – parents, patients, doctors, nurses, scientists, healthcare organizations, government officials, and schools.

 

We are very excited to have the opportunity to further educate our legislators and make a difference in reversing the HPV vaccine mandate in RI. Any donation amount is helpful to reaching the goal of 26 legislators. 15 house committee members, 9 senate committee members, speaker of the house, and senate president.

26 books = 13 people donating $30 ~ Will you help us make the goal? DONATE HERE

Here is an example of one point made by the book;

SHOULD ALL WOMEN UP TO AGE 45 GET THE #HPVVACCINE?

In our book #HPVVaccineOnTrial we examine the 25% and 27% miscarriage rate observed in women who become pregnant during the clinical trials since 15% of women reported a new medical condition related to “reproductive disorders” within the first 7 months. Is there an effect on fertility or fecundability?

The FDA did not question such high miscarriage rates prior to Gardasil’s approval that the public is aware of. The effect was most notable when a woman became pregnant within 30 days of being vaccinated. The effect was larger in women in their late twenties with a 40% miscarriage rate following Gardasil 9. And yet this vaccine is recommended for all women (and men) to age 45 by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices here in the US as of last week.

Instead of acting on this information, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists – ACOG actively discourages simple pregnancy tests prior to vaccination. Why is that?
“HPV vaccination in pregnancy is not recommended, neither is routine pregnancy testing before vaccination.”

https://www.acog.org/…/Committee-on-Adolescent-H…/co704.pdf…

[Gardasil 9 miscarriage data Table 24, page 44. https://www.fda.gov/…/Vaccin…/ApprovedProducts/UCM428669.pdf
See the last line. Also note Table 25 on the following page. Why no warnings to the public about NSAID use for example?]

March 28th 2018 ~

March 28th 2018 ~

The House Health, Education, and Welfare committee in the RI statehouse will hear four bills that relate to the topic of informed consent and the HPV vaccine.

3 bills are good bills, and one bill is very NOT good.

*The philosophical exemption bill (H 7686) http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText/BillText18/HouseText18/H7686.pdf

*The parental choice bill (H 7576) http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText/BillText18/HouseText18/H7576.pdf    This bill gives the ability to write a note for any non casual contact disease vs needing an exemption form.

* the informed consent bill (H 7704) http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText/BillText18/HouseText18/H7704.pdf

*OPPOSE the database tracking bill (H 7882)
http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText/BillText18/HouseText18/H7882.pdf
The tracking bill is extra concerning since most people are unaware that the RI Dept of Health tracks all children from birth in their KidsNet database since 1999. There is no opt out option, and it is not set up as opt in. This new bill will make that same database for all residents in RI, and it tracks much more then just vaccinations.

If you are unable to attend but still want to have your voice heard you can still submit testimony (see below) and email to admin@nohpvmandateri.com and the needed copies will be printed and submitted for you. You can also email the committee members (we suggest you do both) via www.endhpv2017.nohpvmandateri.com

The hearing will begin at the Rise of the House at about 4:30 PM, but we are asking supporters to arrive around 4PM to allow time to sign up to testify OR TO SIGN UP JUST IN SUPPORT of the bills, as you are not required to testify

BE SURE TO ADD #NOHPVmandateRI UNDER ORGANIZATION AFFILIATION WHEN SIGNING IN, this shows the committee the force of one message and group of citizens coming together is strong.

If you can’t make it by 4p, Comment in this event or msg The FB page m.facebook.com/riagainsthpvmandate to be signed in ahead of your arrival to be sure you are signed in with the clerk.

We suggest that you submit a page or two of relevant documentation such as your story of vaccine injury, government documents, science, etc. You’re testimony is much more powerful with written documentation and will be kept in the record if it is written down. Though only your personal opinion is still good too.

If you choose to submit written testimony:

~ You will need to make 38copies total – the house will need 23 copies, the senate will need 15, these will be handed into the clerk. (senate hearing TBT)
~ Include your name and bill number(s) at the top of your testimony
~ Please do not submit a verbatim script of your testimony. Use this as your opportunity to enrich your verbal statements with evidence, more information that you did not have time to say etc. You can submit written testimony only if you don’t wish to speak on the microphone.
~ Be brief and concise. You should keep testimony under two pages.

For those who are new to testifying would like more information see below:

10 tips to testifying before a committee

~ If you can get to the hearing room early, you can sign in with the clerk in room 101 for the house committee (HEW) hearings
~ They are usually very strict about the 2 minute time limit when you testify. It may be helpful to write out a page of testimony in advance and time yourself to see if you can fit all of your points into 2 minutes.  Be to the point.

 

Facebook Event Link ~ you can invite friends into the event which will give them a reminder via facebook notifications and share the event link on your personal wall.

Bills introduced in BOTH the house and the senate!

Bills introduced in BOTH the house and the senate!

Exciting News in RI in February. Legislation has been introduced in both the house and the senate in support of the mission to advocate for informed consent.

Senate Bill  S2405

Introduced By:
Senators Metts, Morgan, Paolino, Cote, and Archambault
This bill will allow for opt out by note vs exemption for the HPV vaccine by the wording of “non-casual contact disease transmitted by sexual contact”. Any parent or guardian can furnish the decision to the institution in writing. All consent forms and correspondence sent to parents and guardians about vaccinations shall affirmatively notify them of the option to opt out of participation in the vaccination program.
This bill is great for informed consent and we support that it is a move in the right direction. However, this bill does not remove HPV or any other non-casual contact disease future vaccine from not being included in the student vaccination list needed for school. It creates a philosophical exemption for that type of vaccine. We need you to help us send a message requesting that there be an amendment to the bill that changes wording to not having non-casual contact diseases on the list of vaccinations for school inclusion at all.
House Bills H7576 and H7686
 H7576
Introduced By:
Representatives Roberts, Quattrocchi, Lancia, Price, and Chippendale
This bill is an exact duplicate of the senate bill discussed above.
H7686
Introduced By:
Representatives O`Grady, McKiernan, Price, Roberts, and Filippi
This bill will add the philosophical exemption option for the vaccination program back in for Rhode Island. You can state it is against your feelings of what is best for your family, and not choose to state it is against your religious beliefs.
At this time the bills have not been scheduled for a hearing yet.
TWO call to action Items-
1- Call the Governor and leave a msg if needed. Stating that you “are tired of waiting for her to take action. That the HPV vaccine was added to the school schedule by administrative order and should be removed by her administrative office immediately.”
401-222-2080
2Send a prewritten email to the members of the house and senate committee in support of the legislation above. Don’t forget to sign the email with your name and address. You will need to send two emails. One to the house committee and one to the senate committee. CLICK HERE
Thank you for your support in this. It takes us all to make this impact together and you are an integral part of that process. Share this message with friends and family to be sure we overload the legislators with contact from the public.
Hearing is scheduled for March 28th 2018

Good Bill introduced & hearing scheduled

Good Bill introduced & hearing scheduled

2020 Legislative session is off to a great start with multiple bills supporting informed consent and health choice.

This notice is about bill H 7811 and the hearing for it on March 11th 2020 4p, just a few days away.

This bill expands vaccinations exemption to include philosophical reasons to opt out of vaccines for school. There are many reasons why a family may choose to opt out one particular vaccine (like the HPV vaccine) or to delay a few vaccines, etc. The parents are the only ones who should be deciding the best health practices for their children, these kinds of decisions should not be dictated by bureaucrats or politicians.

Get involved;

1 Please come and make a brief statement to the HEW committee this Wednesday, March 11 at the State House. Personal testimonies are what will make the greatest impact. A polite, fact based testimony is one of the most important ways to make change in the legislative process.

2 Call the members of HEW committee and Speaker Mattiello. You will likely need to leave them a brief message, asking them to vote 7811 onto the House Floor. Tell them why this legislation is important to you or why it should be passed. Phone numbers and more information included below.

3 Write a brief email and blind carbon copy (BCC) it to the entire House of representatives. Ask your family members and close friends to do the same. A few dozen emails can make a large impact in Rhode Island. Email address are included below.

4 Forward this notice to others to encourage them to also participate. Click here for facebook event for social media sharing.

The single greatest change you can make to vaccine laws is informing lawmakers of your concerns. Many of them simply don’t know enough about the national vaccine program. They need YOU to politely provide them with persuasive facts.

To testify at the State House

1 Limit testimony to 2 minutes.
2 You can submit documents to support your testimony if you include your name, email and write “In Support of H7811” on each page. You will need 23 copies of all written testimony.
3 We may be heard first but we may also wait around for hours before 7811 is heard. Bring a snack and water.
4 HEW committee on the first floor. Turn right after going through security and it is the last door on right. Room 101
5 After 3pm, you can park for free in the RIDOT lot across the street. You can also pay to park at the Providence Place Mall.
6 We encourage you to testify, but you do not have to. You can still come, sign in support of the bill and show by our numbers that we want informed consent for vaccines.

When you call the members of HEW committee and Speaker Mattiello:
1 Introduce yourself.
2 Tell them why they should vote YES to H7811.
3 Be brief. They are extremely busy and appreciate concise comments.

The People’s Truth

A few years ago VaxXed toured the nation and RI had a viewing at the Avon Theatre in Providence. The documentary showed the connection of coverup and deception from within the CDC.

The sequel The People’s Truth is premiering across the nation.

Rhode Island will show The People’s Truth documentary on Jan 6th in Middletown RI. Tickets must be purchased ahead of the show time. There was an original showing of Dec 2nd, due to circumstances out of our control it had to be rescheduled.

If you had reserved your ticket for the original date and time you need to reserve your ticket again, as it is not assumed the new date works in your schedule.

gathr.us/screening/31058

70 total tickets must be reserved before Dec 20th for the show to green light and be confirmed.

The medical tracking bill is dangerously close to passing.  This is our last day to stop it!  Please, please Blind Carbon Copy (BCC) one email to the entire general assembly urging them to VOTE AGAINST H 5541A / S 676A.  Simply copy paste the emails listed below into the BCC line of your email. Then leave at message on Governor’s phone line.

 

Sample email:
Subject:  I do NOT consent. Oppose H5541A Floor Vote TODAY
“Distinguished Lawmakers of Rhode Island,
 
I respectfully urge you reject H 5541A. This bill is invasive and dis-empowering.  The database may include an enormous amount of sensitive information that I do not wish to share with unknown entities.  Additionally, if our information is deleted from the registry, we may be auto-enrolled back into it whenever we see a new doctor.  This would require that we opt out repeatedly!   Please do not allow RIDOH to impose medical tracking upon law abiding and largely unsuspecting people.
 

The CDC states these databases should be by choice “Choice – Parents must be allowed to choose whether to participate in the IIS”. (https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/iis/about.html) This database should be opt-in only with written consent. This is the only way to protect ourselves against invasions of privacy, data sharing, data hacking and a whole host of unforeseen consequences. Opt in also respects the right to privacy in our papers as guaranteed in the 4th amendment of the constitution.

 
Respectfully yours,”

This is the only way to protect ourselves against invasions of privacy, data sharing, data hacking and a whole host of unforeseen consequences.  Opt in also respects the right to privacy in our papers as guaranteed in the 4th amendment of the constitution.

PRESS RELEASE

 

June 17, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Rhode Island Dept of Health makes statements that do Not match S676 / H5541 bill language. Then calls the citizens of RI, protecting their right to informed consent and medical data privacy, “anti vaxxers”.

Bills S676 sub A and H5541 sub A, are to develop a tracking database for all RI residents of all ages. The bills, if passed, will auto-enroll all citizens in RI, without the ability to remove your file from the database. In addition all Dept of Health agencies are exempt from federal HIPAA regulation. Permitting them to allow third party access as they see fit without the knowledge or consent of those contained in the database.

RIDOH asserts that the database is to track vaccinations received only. The language of the bills do not explicitly outline vaccinations only. “approved CDC data elements” is the language the bill will allow tracking fields to include. The page on CDC website explicitly states this list is not exclusive; “This list does not include all data elements external information systems such as EHRs, vital records, practice management or billing systems are expected to send to an IIS. The list may not include all data elements an IIS produces, stores or sends. Data elements may be derived and architectural solution may differ among IIS.” https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/iis/core-data-elements/CDC-Endorsed-Data-Element-Definitions.xlsx

Neil P. Hytinen, Chief Public Affairs Officer and Legislative Liaison for RI Dept of Health, had an email exchange with RI Resident  Maddalena Cirignotta . His written statement asserts  “It is important to emphasize, however, that should RIDOH remove all of an individual’s identifiable information from RICAIR at any given point in time, RIDOH has no way of preventing future information from being entered into the database. Should more information be entered after the initial removal of all identifiable information, the individual must make subsequent opt-out requests to RIDOH. ”

Days later Neil Hytinen wrote an email to nurses and medical professionals in RI, calling anyone fighting against this intrusion of privacy “The antivaxxers” and continues by saying, “[antivaxxers] are flooding the inboxes of the House and Senate asking them to oppose our bill.” He proceeded to encourage the medical community to write to legislators using “small but formidable antivaccination lobby” is spreading misinformation in their email. https://nohpvmandateri.wordpress.com/2019/06/17/DOH-statements-do-not-match-bill-language    https://nohpvmandateri.wordpress.com/2019/06/17/ri-doh-calls-advocates-anti-vaxxers

Neil represents the RI Dept of Health. His statements are condescending and incorrect. Citizens like Maddalena, myself, and informed consent advocates, continue to thoroughly vet bill language and question DOH statements. The core of the fight against these bills, is our right to be informed in addition to privacy of our papers as guaranteed in the 4th amendment.

Neil decided name calling and stereotyping was the correct mode of action. RI citizens have a right to know about how officials that represent our state are acting behind the scenes. Discrediting and ignoring educated and important questions.” Emphasized Aimee Gardiner, Informed Consent advocate, and Director of Rhode Islanders against mandated HPV vaccinations.

Everyone should be concerned about this behavior and particularly these bills. Database information collection of any kind should be opt in. Neil’s own words explain how cumbersome the opt out process would be executed.”

Citizens who want to oppose this legislation should contact their personal legislators. The house will vote on H5541sub A this week.

Good afternoon Friends and Pro Vaccination Allies,

 

The House will be voting on the 5541  SUB A our Lifetime Immunization Registry bill tomorrow and the Senate Bill 676 will be voted on by their chamber shortly thereafter. Thank you for all you have done to get us to this point and ahead of the votes I have one final ask.

 

The antivaxxers are flooding the inboxes of the House and Senate asking them to oppose our bill. If you could all reach out to your groups and ask them to email the House and Senate to support this legislation that would be extremely helpful. Below please find some standard language which would be great to be reinforced by the pro-vaccination community at large.

Subject line: Please Support the Immunization Registry 5541

 

Body:

 

Dear Representative,

 

My name is ___________ and I am writing to you today to ask you to support the Rhode Island Department of Health’s Lifetime Immunization Registry to be known as RICAIR. At a time when preventable diseases are making a resurgence across the country due to misinformation being spread by a small but formidable antivaccination lobby, we need this tool which 48 other states already have at their disposal in order to prepare and respond to outbreak. The childhood registry has been a huge success since it was established in 1997 allowing us to have some of the best immunization coverage in the nation up to age 18. It is time we establish a tool that allows us to protect our adult and elderly population equally.  The bill provides the ability to opt out of the registry. Opting out is an effective way to balance protecting our community while preserving individual rights and is supported by the CDC and World Health Organization.

 

I ask today that you support science, best public health practices, and our community by voting yes on H 5541.

 

Thank you for your consideration.

Dept of Health statements do NOT match bill language. Bad Database Bill fight forges forward
Read the email exchange below where DOH states comments not actually explicit defined in the bill. Neil also admits that the KidsNet database tracks many forms of information that you are not told is getting entered into a central database. Very concerning situation that everyone should be fighting against such databases. Unless a long term goal is to eventually go door to door, there is zero reason that informed consent shouldnt be the avenue in which to be included in such a database.
This bill will be heard in senate HHS committee Tues June 18th and on the house floor June 19 th to vote – contact as many legislators as possible to oppose. Email whole general assembly.

Good morning Tricia,
Yesterday afternoon (6/12/19), Neil Hytanin gave lawmakers false information regarding medical tracking bills H5541/S676. He told HEW committee members that the information of Rhode Islanders who opt out, would be removed from the data base. That is false. RIDOH does not currently expunge information nor is there any provision in the bill to compel them to. I’m writing to formally request documentation from RIDOH of his assertion that our medical information will be expunged if we opt-out of the medical registry.
Warmly,
Maddalena Cirignotta

Good afternoon ,
Thank you for your inquiry. The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) have stated in multiple hearings that it is possible to remove all of an individual’s information from the Rhode Island Childhood and Adult Immunization Registry (RICAIR) should he or she choose to opt out. RIDOH plans to make that an option. We have heard your concerns regarding the accessibility of the form to avail oneself of the opt-out provision. In response to the concern you raised and in maintaining consistency with the current practice of contacting RIDOH, there is language included in the Sub A of the proposed legislation that will mandate an opt-out request form is available and submittable on RIDOH’s website.
It is important to emphasize, however, that should RIDOH remove all of an individual’s identifiable information from RICAIR at any given point in time, RIDOH has no way of preventing future information from being entered into the database. Should more information be entered after the initial removal of all identifiable information, the individual must make subsequent opt-out requests to RIDOH.
There is another option that individuals may want to consider. If there is basic information (name, date of birth, address, phone) for an individual, RIDOH can include a notation that this individual has requested no vaccination data be entered under his or her name.
So that individuals will have the chance to decide which option is best, RIDOH intends to allow the individual to designate on the form which option they choose.
RIDOH reiterates that the information included in the current immunization registry and what will be included in RICAIR is only a subset of the information that is included in KIDSNET. This seems to be a point of confusion. Immunization data is one portion of what is included in KIDSNET. In its totality, KIDSNET is a comprehensive data system RIDOH uses to manage multiple state and federal programs such as newborn screening, WIC, family home visiting, and lead prevention—all of which serve Rhode Islanders and keep them healthy.
RIDOH’s goal is not to just collect data to populate a lifetime registry. RIDOH’s goal is to build an effective registry that allows RIDOH staff to study vaccination rates in the community and guide Departmental strategies to achieve the high levels of immunization coverage necessary to keep Rhode Islanders protected from disease outbreaks. A lifetime registry will also allow RIDOH to better respond to disease outbreaks when they happen. 48 other states are already have authorization to establish lifetime registries (47 of which are already operational). Recently, the states of Washington and New York have experienced large outbreaks of preventable diseases, and public health officials have used the information contained in the lifetime registries to keep their citizens safe, save lives, and prevent unnecessary spending of healthcare dollars. States who have opt- in registries are not able to monitor vaccination rates and respond to outbreaks as effectively and efficiently as states with opt-out registries.
At a time when preventable diseases are making a resurgence around the country it is RIDOH’s duty and responsibility to do all it can to protect and preserve the public’s health.
Best,
Neil Hytinen

Hi Neil,

As a spokesperson for the Department of Health, it is imperative that you make truthful, fact based statements to lawmakers. Legislatures rely on RIDOH for accurate information.

Yesterday (6/12/19) during the consideration of H5541/S676, you told committee members that RIDOH will remove the information of those who opt out of the medical registry. As I stated in my original email, RIDOH does not currently expunge information nor is there any provision in the bill to compel them to. I’m writing to formally request documentation from RIDOH of your assertion that our medical information will be expunged if we opt-out of the medical registry. What part of the bill requires RIDOH to remove our information?

In response to your assertion that “the information included in the current immunization registry and what will be included in RICAIR is only a subset of the information that is included in KIDSNET,” The bill language removes age limitations for the medical database but does not limit RIDOH to tracking only immunization data. What part of the bill limits data collection to vaccinations?

Provisions requiring the reporting of immunization status and any other relevant information that the director determines appropriate for all persons under the age of eighteen years for the purpose of establishing and maintaining a childhood an immunization registry,; provided, however, that the information collected by the department for the immunization registry will only include data elements nationally endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as necessary to meet standards for immunization information systemshttp://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText/BillText19/SenateText19/S0676.pdf http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText/BillText19/HouseText19/H5541.pdf

The list of data elements is 9 pages long and expressly pre-approves other data elements that individual may collect, again affording RIDOH enormous discretion with what they may collect. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/iis/core-data-elements/iis-func-stds.html

If RIDOH only wishes to collect vaccination data, why does the department refuse to amend the language to vaccination only?

On a final note, you have stated that, “Recently, the states of Washington and New York have experienced large outbreaks of preventable diseases, and public health officials have used the information contained in the lifetime registries to keep their citizens safe, save lives, and prevent unnecessary spending of healthcare dollars.” Please keep in mind that the medical registry for adults in New York is OPT-IN ONLY WITH WRITTEN CONSENT and yet you have just indicated that the registry was effective.

Sincerely,

Maddalena Cirignotta

Hi,
Yes as mentioned before we will have an option made available to remove information from RICAIR. Please accept this as documentation and the previous email as documentation even if the legislation is silent on the subject there will be that option. We are also fine with including language in statute. We would be happy to include the following language.
“Any person may opt out of the choose to remove their information from immunization registry by contacting the department directly by phone or by submitting a form online which shall be made available on the department’s website.”
As for limitations to what is collected the language in the bill reads as follows:
“information collected by the department for the immunization registry will only include data elements nationally endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to meet standards for immunization information systems.” Which can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/iis/core-data-elements/iis-func-stds.html
Again RICAIR will be built as a separate database from KIDSNET and immunization data will be removed from both databases if requested.
Also attached are the ACIP recommended vaccines for both adults and children which are limitations that are set in current statute.
Finally, as mentioned before is the most effective way to ensure effective immunization coverage recommended by the CDC and WHO. It is an effective way to balance protecting our community while preserving individual rights.
Best,
Neil Hytinen

Hi Neil,
Are you saying that the ONLY documentation you have that RIDOH will remove our information are your emails to me? Keep in mind that you sent them AFTER your statements to HEW and you have acknowledged that “the legislation is silent on the subject.”
Additionally, you mentioned that, “should RIDOH remove all of an individual’s identifiable information from RICAIR at any given point in time, RIDOH has no way of preventing future information from being entered into the database. Should more information be entered after the initial removal of all identifiable information, the individual must make subsequent opt-out requests to RIDOH.”
You are proposing a system which would require that we opt-out repeatedly yet we would receive no written confirmation that we have opted out in the first place. That is unreasonably burdensome to the public and contradicts your promises to lawmakers that the opt-out process would be simple.
Opt-in is the only way to protect the rights of individuals against data mining. I reiterate that the list of CDC approved data elements is 9 pages long and expressly pre-approves other data elements that individual may collect, again affording RIDOH enormous discretion with what they may collect. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/iis/core-data-elements/iis-func-stds.html [cdc.gov]

Again, I ask If RIDOH only wishes to collect vaccination data, why does the department refuse to amend the language to vaccination only?
Sincerely,
Maddalena Cirignotta
