So far no indication of a vax mandate at my employer.  They do require visitors (except from other company divisions) to show proof of vax, no exceptions.  I wonít be surprised to see a mandate eventually, but thatís likely a ways away.

FWIW HIPPA, in general,  doesn't apply to employers. So an employer asking for a Vax card is not a HIPPA issue, and in that context the card is not PHI.

Correct. If your employer called your doctor to see if you were vaccinated and the doctor answered, that would be a violation.

I just made a passable fake.  It's not like the stupid things are hard to copy, and the vax lot and expiration dates are easy to find. Worked for one round of international travel and the mask police at the Judas Priest concert couldn't tell/didn't care.

Short of the violent conflict both sides are just begging for, I find the best option is to make fun of the whole stupid mess.

HIPAA doesn't apply to employers, but it is still PHI.  My employer pounds that into my head all the time, and I just had to take my annual mandatory refresher course on it.  So I'm throwing it back at them; either it's sensitive data or it's not.  They want to have it both ways

"I just made a passable fake."

I've heard a rumor that someone at my company was walked out for providing fake vaccination credentials.

Doing the fake vaccine card is cowardly.

Yes, threatening peopleís livelihoods is a great way to get them to fall in line. As is threatening their families and properties. Terrorism works.

But notice they wonít do jack *expletive deleted*it about forcing a mandate on welfare fucksticks. If I have to prove Iím vaccinated to work shouldnít they have to prove they are vaccinated to get what Iím paying for with my taxes?

You have my vote. ETA: Now that I think more about this concept, I wonder why some conservative governor somewhere has not issued a mandate in this regard.  You would think it would be popular.  I wonder if there is some legal issue that would prevent this.

I am expected to be reachable 24/7 by phone, email, or text for urgent risk management matters.  The company does not issue cell phones so I do this on my personal phone, realizing the risk that my phone may be subpoenaed and searched in the context of a malpractice or other legal matter.  I accept that minimal risk.

Good case for a cheap burner phone from Walmart.

You probably shouldn't believe anything not within the scope of your own perceptions.

Yeah, and?

One of our own last year said

Quote
"I'm glad that, if we had to have a plague, it arrived at a time when Americans' trust in our institutions is at an all-time high. At a time when we could trust Big Medicine to science impartially, instead of changing basic facts of human biology for political reasons. At a time when news organizations are clearly committed to ethics, integrity, and impartiality. At a time when no one could possibly have reason to be skeptical of official sources. At a time when both major political parties are clearly on the side of the citizenry. At least we can be thankful for that much."

Who does one trust, and why?
In thy presence is fulness of joy.
At thy right hand pleasures for evermore.

Why is it cowardly for going to a concert and traveling? I should've demanded access and made a scene?  Or I could make a mockery of the whole stupid thing  and laugh at their pointless measures and enjoy some metal.

I'm sitting here wondering if/when the VA is going to require "the jab" if you want to enter their facilities for health care. It could easily happen...

The VA sent me a text message a couple of days ago asking if I want a booster. Boosters will be available mid-October.

Coincidentally, right about then I also saw a plethora or articles about people developing blood clots and dying within days (or hours) after getting a third jab of the Pfizer (which is what my VA hospital distributes). I think I'll take a pass this time around.
