Analysis of DHHS proposed rule changes to vaccine registry

On Wednesday, September 8th at 3pm, DHHS will hold a public hearing on expanding the Vaccine Registry.  If the idea that the idea a Vaccine Passport concerns you, now is the time to act.  There will be only one public hearing:

He-P 307 “Immunization/Vaccination Registry” 
Public Hearing: Wednesday, September 8, 2021
Time: 3:00pm

Location: DHHS, Brown Building, Auditorium, 129 Pleasant Street, Concord, NH
Comment Period Ends: Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Several groups have already sounded the alarm on this issue, however unlike legislative public hearings at the state house, this hearing was not announced in the House or Senate Calendars. We have reviewed the proposed rule changes and felt that we needed to send our own alert on this proposed change.

We ask that you come in person, but if you cannot, please take time to email them directly or email our treasurer. Details below.

Below are just a few of the major issues with this rule change.

  1. The proposed rules expands the unconstitutional Vaccine registry. In 2018, 409,325 people or 81% of the NH voters voted to adopt Art. 2b:

[Art.] 2-b. [Right to Privacy.] An individual’s right to live free from governmental intrusion in private or personal information is natural, essential, and inherent.”

This proposed rule change violates this constitutional amendment because the rules would allow private and confidential health information to be shared with both public and private groups. Creating and expanding a database designed to track people from birth to death is a clear violation of this constitutional protection that was put in place just 2 years ago.

  1. From the cover page of the proposed rules: “The registry tracks vaccinations that health care providers administer to patients in New Hampshire in order for important vaccination information to be shared among health care providers, schools, child care agencies, pharmacists, public health departments, and state agencies…” As others have said, George Orwell’s novel 1984 was not intended to be a road map for NH:

“Nineteen Eighty-Four, often referred to as 1984, is a dystopian social science fiction novel by the English novelist George Orwell. It was published on 8 June 1949 by Secker & Warburg as Orwell’s ninth and final book completed in his lifetime. Thematically, Nineteen Eighty-Four centers on the consequences of totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of persons and behaviors within society..”

  1. DHHS wants to add “childcare centers, colleges, and universities,” to the list of public and private organizations that have read access to this ‘private and secure database’. Are you worried that your private daycare, school or college will force your child to get a Covid injection and/or continue to get the semi-annual covid-shots? Here is your chance to weigh in on this massive expansion of government control of you and your families lives.
  1. All newborns to be enrolled into the system. Changes to the definitions will mandate that even those who want to have their children at home with midwives will end up with their children enrolled into the system. This is a prime example of government reaching into your bedroom…

“Birthing facilities shall enroll all newborns in the registry through submittal of the electronic birth certificate (EBC) to the Division of Vital Records Administration Registration/Certification.

(c) When enrolling a newborn, birthing facilities shall record and report information about any vaccine or biological administered at the birthing facility on the EBC prior to the discharge of the newborn

(d) If the birth of a newborn takes place outside of a birthing facility and the newborn is then transferred to a birthing facility, the receiving birthing facility shall enroll the newborn in, and inform the parent about the registry.”…

  1. They are removing critical opt-out provisions: Not only are they eliminating critical opt-out clauses, the change will allow the names of those who opt-out to be added into the registry and will remove the prohibition on entering names into the registry. The following text is being deleted from these rules:

“(b) No patient’s immunization/vaccination information shall be entered into the registry without that patient, or the patient’s parent or guardian if the patient is a minor, being given the opportunity to opt out of the registry.

(c) No health care provider shall provide to the department or to the registry the name of, or any immunization/vaccination information relating to, any patient who opts out of participating in the registry, except as required by RSA 141-C:9.”

For those that can, we need you to be at this hearing

  1. I am appalled at this blatant violation of Article 2-b. We have a individual right to privacy and a right to be free from gov. intrusion and strong-arm tactics which invade our private and personal information. Receiving a vaccine is a personal choice, not one which can or should be forced on an individual. This is a direct attack on our constitutionally protected rights.

  2. The registry is a monstrous overreach by a low IQ state government. Our medical history is none of their goddam business.

    Is the reason I moved here 44 years ago !!!!
    These policy changes endanger what that statement charges us with. To approve these policies is an assault on our basic freedoms and that of our children. It is time to make a strike for freedom, STOP THEM NOW!!!! Our governance was not made in the cover of darkness but in the light of day. If we allow this, soon those who reject Vaccination will need to have a yellow insignia ( #NV) sewn on their clothing. Sound familiar!

  4. Please Be Advised that I join “ReOpen NH” and Hon. JR Howell in opposing such a “vaccine Registry”. You are suppose to represent and serve the health needs of the public. This does NOT represent the best interest of the people. Also it violates Hippa Laws. If I were not with ReOpen NH, I would personally be sending you a “Cease and Desist” letter and file it accordingly. At some point you will be held to account for violating the health and safety of the people if you choose to go along with this. I urge you to vote against such a registry.
    Thank you for your time.

  5. Thank you for informing us. I wholeheartedly object to this vaccination registry and the changes to HeP307 on the grounds that it violates the rights to privacy particularly to health related information. It violates HIPPA as well.

  6. This is unconstitutional. It’s more like Healthcare Communism, as a recent op. ed. stated, and We, the People are standing up against it.

  8. This is just another nail in the coffin of human rights. You can add paragraph after paragraph in an attempt to justify it, but the bottom line in everything we are seeing in the name of safety is really HUMAN RIGHTS and FREEDOM. This madness must be stopped. Our health is not at risk we are only being fear mongered into believing we are. We are at a great risk of loosing our Human Rights and our freedom to be. For the love of God and Humanity stop the fear based Insanity.

  9. Dear Hon. JR Hoell,
    Thank you for providing this information. I am opposed to having an Immunization/Vaccination Registry implemented in the state of New Hampshire for the following reasons.
    1. According to Art 2-b: all individuals have the right to live free from governmetal intrusion in private or personal information. This registry is a violation of NH resident’s right to personal privacy.
    –Tracking vaccinations given by health care providers in order to share that information with other institutes is a violation of the constitution of NH in rergards to personal privacy.
    2. As to providing this information to childcare centers, colleges and universities is unconstitutional. Every NH resident has a constitutional right to privacy. This registry is a violation these rights.
    3. Newborns should not be enrolled into this registry system because this is a violation of their constitutional right to choice and privacy before they have the ability to make a choice to be involved or not. As a state, we should be protecting their constitutional right to privacy, not taking it away.
    Also, including the names of NH residents who opt-out of the system is also a violation of their constitutional right to privacy.
    I adamantly am opposed to this registry!

  10. I have to wonder who in the DHHS would even propose such a rule change! Clearly this proposed rule change would remove our inherent right to be free. Even more disturbing is this proposed “rule change” is simply one more step towards setting the stage for a world of tyranny, that will bring catastrophic results to mankind as history repeates itself!
    The main focus here should be on who is responsible for this proposed rule change! Find the cancer, and remove it!
    God bless!
