A federal bill passed by the U.S. House of Representatives barely got a blink from mainstream media, but it's one that will have wide-ranging, long-lasting impact on the entire U.S. if it makes it through the Senate and becomes law.
H.R. 550, entitled "Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act of 2021," expands the powers of state and local health departments to track citizens' vaccination status and set the stage for vaccine passports and possibly no-fly lists.
The far-reaching bill literally gives powers to unelected health care directors, who could arbitrarily set dangerous precedents when it comes to vaccine mandates, restrictions of services and other sanctions against unvaccinated individuals — all without fear of losing their jobs in the next election cycle.
It's time to contact your legislators and let them know by phone or email that they need to stand for freedom of choice and restore democracy to the health care setting.
