So no hearing, no chance for the public to be heard as usual...
The database is an essential part of any system to FORCE adults to get vaccines. And to make possible vaccine passports and systems of vaccine-based segregation. Precisely identifying noncompliant adults will be necessary for any tracking system. It is also an essential tool to achieve the growth goals of the global vaccine industry, which is based on expanding the adult market given the low growth prospects of the saturated infant and childhood markets. Obviously this database will be used to identify people according to their vaccination status and the only realistic use for this database will be to identify people to pressure them to get vaccinated, or to exclude them from various places or activities using vaccine passports or other tracking systems. Reminds many Americans of Nazi Germany and segregation. This is a gross violation of our right to privacy. Once this gets started what other personal health information will this database be used for?? This is the taxpayer subsidizing the marketing expenses of some of the most profitable companies in the world. Totally unacceptable and I do not consent to this governmental overreach and neither should you.

There isn't a need to create an adult vaccine database other than to enforce another vaccine mandate and enhanced the failed key to city vaccine passport system that aided in unconstitutional segregation laws.
