YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TELL ANYONE YOUR VACCINE STATUS!
It’s personal, private, confidential.
The AG has issued a press release warning ALL healthcare providers against unlawful use of the state immunization registry to identify employees’ vaccination status. He bases his decision on violations of ‘confidential use’ of the registry. Alabama State Board of Health previously issued rules that limit the permitted uses of the state immunization registry.
The AG acknowledges that healthcare employers are violating these limited uses for the purpose of identifying employees who are not in compliance with their vaccine mandate. AG Marshall states, “In several of those cases, a shared employer specifically acknowledged accessing the state immunization database for this purpose. This privacy violation is unlawful.”
AG Marshall has sent a formal cease and desist letter to a health care employer, and warned ALL other healthcare entities to heed this warning immediately! This will provide additional protection for employees who do not want to share their vaccine status with their employers. See additional information here.
PLEASE THANK AG MARSHALL
FOR STANDING FOR THE RULE OF LAW!
