Absolutely correct @politicalhobbyist , my bad, there is a EU equivalent called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and it's designed to keep PHI confidential similar to our HIPAA. Thanks for the reminder!

@noonesixx this has been proven false.
In Israel, the Ministry of Health has an official form for anyone who experiences an adverse side-effect of the vaccine (here). As of Jan. 21, the Israeli Association of Allergy and Clinical Immunology said 20 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine had been administered worldwide, with just a few serious adverse reactions and “not a single case of mortality” (here).
A Jan. 27 report from the health ministry detailed vaccine side-effects, and said most seen in Israel were “mild and transient” and were “similar in their frequency and character to the symptoms reported after other vaccines were given to the population”. This included effects such as pain at the site of injection or a headache (here). One area of concern involved several cases of anaphylactic shock – a treatable, but severe allergic reaction. This sort of reaction is extremely rare, and no fatalities had been reported (here).
Several other countries, including Norway, Germany and Belgium recently reported deaths occurring after a COVID-19 vaccine was administered, but none have been found to have a causal link (here).

“We won’t have that because it’s confidential,” said Dr. Margaret Harris, a World Health Organization spokeswoman
@happilyshadowyfest-blog their reasoning seems pretty logical to me. I mean, you wouldn't want your employer releasing your personal health information, right? That's HIPAA.

@mountainmancharles for what? Hurting your glass feelings?
@bitchyalannanicole that's not how diplomatic immunity works... diplomatic immunity only works when diplomats are out of country and in office. Trump is neither. He can be arrested tomorrow morning by the FBI.
@oldhickory1982 your family misses you, so I'm going to write you a prescription...

Yeahhhhh that's not what happened, @happilyshadowyfest-blog
From PolitiFact:
That claim hinged on the Biden administration’s decision to freeze the implementation of several federal agency rules that had not gone into effect as of Jan. 20. Among those pending rules was an insulin-related executive order issued by former President Donald Trump in July 2020.
But the White House’s decision to temporarily freeze the rule could not have raised the current price of insulin products because the rule had not gone into effect yet. It was set to kick in on Jan. 22, two days after the White House announced its regulatory freeze. The freeze on the insulin-related rule was effective until March 22.
Moreover, the Trump rule is narrowly targeted and would not apply to most Americans.
The rule would apply to federally qualified health centers, which are government-supported clinics that help people facing financial obstacles to care and prescription drugs. Specifically, it would require those centers to pass along to patients any discounts they get on purchases of insulin and epinephrine through a federal drug pricing program called 340B, rather than pocketing the difference.
Supporters of the rule say it would help people who struggle to pay for pricey medications, but the Health and Human Services Department wrote in the Federal Register that it believed the rule would have "minimal economic impact" because of its limited scope.
"Many FQHCs reported already passing their discount savings onto patients and that the rule would create an administrative burden," the American Diabetes Association said in a statement.
The National Association of Community Health Centers said in its own statement that "overall prices of insulin and Epipens across the country are not affected by the Trump Administration regulation or the recent action by the Biden Administration."
Rising insulin prices are a problem for the millions of Americans who rely on the medication to manage their diabetes. The high costs have been driven largely by the business practices of manufacturers, health plans and pharmacy benefit managers, PolitiFact reported.

Just a day after testing positive for COVID-19, a Florida Republican official who battled against mask mandates, attacked the vaccine, and railed at CDC officials has died in Tampa.
Gregg Prentice, who was 61, led the Hillsborough County Election Integrity Committee—and his sudden death has sent the local GOP scrambling as it no longer has access to essential campaign finance software without his help.
In a Sept. 14 letter to the Federal Election Commission, the Hillsborough County Republican Executive Committee reported it might not be able to file its monthly financial reports as required—because only Prentice knew how to do it.
