Letter to DailyClout: Dangerous Illinois Bills Proposed: Vaccine Registry and Forcible Quarantine!
I am not a political activist in any way. However, as a mother, a daughter, and a physician assistant for 33 years, I speak from kindness and wisdom. I have also had the honor to educate and treat many outpatients with Covid as well.
HB4244 was introduced to the Illinois HHS subcommittee. I contacted Amy Grant of Wheaton office 2 weeks ago and was told by her secretary that they failed to vote on HB4244 on that day, as there were not enough members present to do so. They are attempting another vote today.
What is this bill?
‘HB4244 proposal: Amends the Immunization Data Registry Act. Provides that health care providers, physician’s designees, or pharmacist’s designees shall (rather than may) provide immunization data to be entered into the immunization data registry. Provides that the written information and the immunization data exemption forms must include information that the health care provider shall (rather than may) report immunization data to the Department of Public Health to be entered into the immunization data registry. Effective January 1, 2023’View the HB 4244 on BillCam. The bill is sponsored by Illinois Rep. Bob Morgan. Here’s how to reach Rep. Morgan:
‘HB4640: Creates the Access to Public Health Data Act. Provides that the Department of Public Health, the Department of Human Services, and the Department of Children and Family Services shall, at the request of a local health department in Illinois, make any and all public health data related to residents of that local health department’s jurisdiction available to that local health department for the purposes of preventing or controlling disease, injury, or disability. Provides that the Department of Public Health, the Department of Human Services, and the Department of Children and Family Services may adopt any rules necessary to implement the Act. Contains other provisions. Amends the Department of Public Health Act.

Provides that a person, facility, institution, or agency providing information under the provisions may withhold a patient’s mental or behavioral health history. Amends the Vital Records Act. Provides that no rule adopted by the Department of Public Health shall be construed as restricting access to vital records by any municipality, county, multi-county, public health district, or regional health officer recognized by the Department for the purposes described in specified provisions. Amends the Illinois Controlled Substances Act. Provides that the Department of Public Health may release specified confidential information to a certified local health department engaged in the performance of epidemiological studies, the application of data science methods, or other analytic models that protect and promote public health. Makes other changes.’View the HB 4640 on BillCam. The bill is sponsored by Illinois Rep. Deborah Conroy. Here’s how to reach Rep. Conroy:
‘HB4640: To prevent the spread of a dangerously contagious or infectious disease, the [Public Health] Department may, pursuant to the provisions of subsection (c) of this Section, isolate or quarantine persons whose refusal to undergo observation and monitoring results in uncertainty regarding whether he or she has been exposed to or is infected with a dangerously contagious or infectious disease or otherwise poses a danger to the public’s health.”
I contacted each HHS subcommittee member by phone in the last 24 hours and I was unable to speak with anyone.
Please share this warning with people of Illinois and have them contact their elected officials!
