“I don’t think it really matters,” Prescott replied. “I think it’s HIPAA.”
Dallas Cowboys QB Duck Prescott on whether he’s vaccinated or not: “I don’t think it’s really important … I think it’s HIPAA.”

Green, a far-right MP who has been suspended from Twitter for spreading misinformation about COVID-19, told reporters this week that she refused to disclose her status, also citing health privacy laws.
“Your first question is a violation of my HIPAA rights,” Green said. “You see, with HIPAA rights, we don’t need to disclose our medical records, including our vaccine records.”
Just how HuffPost reported, she is don’t quite understand the concept… “HIPAA applies to healthcare providers, insurers and other healthcare organizations with access to medical records,” writes HuffPost. “It gives people rights and restrictions on which organizations can access their health information. This does not stop the reporter from asking about your medical history. And that doesn’t stop anyone from telling if they were vaccinated. “
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell testified that more than 75% of the players made at least one shot, Prescott’s remarks do not contribute to the league playing a safe, uninterrupted season.
For this, Twitter fired Prescott.
Wrong and wrong. Disclosing whether you have been vaccinated or not is * important * and does not violate HIPAA.

What’s wrong with people? If you got vaccinated, tell me you have a fucking ass. If not, shame on you. Be a role model and lead by example. Maybe in the future, Cowboys are waiting for forfeits.

Every reporter should ask this question. We need to know which players don’t mind hurting others

Jesus … we can tell these guys what HIPAA really is. It gets annoying when they repeat nonsense.
