Bad Bill Bob's Commentary on HB293

Though this bill allows for an opt out for families opposed to immunization record                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
sharing, there is little language included that guarantees that the families OR parents                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
would know what they could do OR what form to fill out.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
This bill provides NO language requiring health service providers to inform a patient that                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
an Opt Out database even exists. Hopefully the committee considering this takes time                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
to examine this and ask many questions.
