Door-To-Door Vaxx Check

Explainer

When Team Biden comes knocking, do I need to share my Vaxx business?

By Jimmie Johnson, Ryan Tiedgen

President Joe Biden continues to make the case for more Americans to get vaccinated. But can Team Biden come knocking and ask your vaccine status? That’s a question that has ignited debate between the White House and Republicans online.

JIMMIE JOHNSON: SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT COME KNOCKING TO GET AMERICA VACCINATED?

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: We need to go community-by-community, neighborhood-by-neighborhood, and oftentimes door-to-door, literally knocking on doors.

JIMMIE: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN CONTINUING TO PREACH HIS DOOR-TO-DOOR DOCTRINE AND IT HASN’T SAT WELL WITH REPUBLICANS.

IN A TWEET, CONGRESSMAN DAN CRENSHAW OF TEXAS SAID, “HOW ABOUT DON’T KNOCK ON MY DOOR. YOU’RE NOT MY PARENTS. YOU’RE THE GOVERNMENT. MAKE THE VACCINE AVAILABLE, AND LET PEOPLE BE FREE TO CHOOSE. WHY IS THAT CONCEPT SO HARD FOR THE LEFT?”

WHO EXACTLY IS KNOCKING?
WHAT ARE THEY ASKING FROM YOU?
AND IS IT EVEN LEGAL?

LET’S GET THIS STRAIGHT.

LET’S START WITH THE “WHO.” THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS THEY ARE RELYING ON VOLUNTEERS, CLERGY AND
COMMUNITY LEADERS, NOT GOVERNMENT WORKERS OR AGENTS.

AND AS FAR AS THE ” WHY.” IS THE GOVERNMENT KEEPING A DATABASE OF WHO’S BEING VACCINATED?
HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES SECRETARY XAVIER BECERRA SURE MADE IT SOUND THAT WAY IN THIS C-N-N INTERVIEW.

XAVIER BECERRA: The federal government has spent trillions of dollars to keep Americans alive
during this pandemic. So it is absolutely the government’s business…It is taxpayers’ business if we have to continue to spend money.

JIMMIE: AFTER A LOT OF BACKLASH BECERRA LATER WALKED BACK THOSE COMMENTS.

HE TWEETED, “TO BE CLEAR: THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO DATABASE
TRACKING WHO IS VACCINATED.”

NEXT, IS IT LEGAL TO ASK SOMEONE THEIR COVID-19 VACCINATION STATUS?
THE ANSWER IS TWO-FOLD. YES, IT’S LEGAL TO ASK.
BUT YOU DON’T NEED TO ANSWER. IT’S YOUR CHOICE WHETHER YOU WANT TO SHARE YOUR VACCINATION
STATUS OR NOT.

FINALLY, WHAT ABOUT THIS HIPPA STUFF WE KEEP HEARING ABOUT? YOUR
RIGHT TO MEDICAL PRIVACY.

A HIPAA VIOLATION WOULD ONLY OCCUR IF LET’S SAY YOU DISCLOSE INFORMATION TO YOUR DOCTOR AND HE OR SHE DISCLOSES THAT INFORMATION TO SOMEONE ELSE WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION.

NOW THAT YOU’VE GOT THAT STRAIGHT.
LET ME KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS IN THE COMMENTS BELOW.
