    • I'm the first part of wT's post. Never took Meyers-Brigg (or maybe I did once?) so I have no idea what those acronyms stand for so I couldn't tell you if I am an INTJ or whatever.

      Topic? I have my annual physical tomorrow. I've had to answer three times in the past week if I had tested positive for COVID or come in contact, etc. but they did not ask me if I was vaccinated. Which I thought was a little odd.

          That is curious- can you ask that in a way that you can post the reason here? Assuming your Doctors and Nurses know why....

              From what the receptionist at my optometrist told me, they're not allowed to. They can ask if you've been ill, or if you've been exposed, as you were, but they can't outright ask you if you've been vaccinated.
              What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                Three. And I'm your friendly neighborhood trans lesbian on top of it. Though I do notice I'm more of an "ambivert" INFP.

                  Wouldn't it be in your medical record anyway? Pretty sure the form I filled out when i first got vaccinated had a space to list who my PCP was.

                    Far be it from me to question the legal advice handed out by a receptionist at an optometrist's office, but I don't think that's even close to being right. In fact, during my last annual physical my doctor asked me whether I'd had the shingles vaccine (I had) because he couldn't remember.

                    When the scheduling people at a health care facility talk to you leading up to an appointment, all they are interested in is whether you presently have covid. Have you tested positive or been in contact with someone who has tested positive. Those questions are just for the purpose of letting you in the door. Whether you've been vaccinated or not is irrelevant for that purpose.

                    Now, when someone goes in for the actual physical, I wouldn't be surprised at all to hear that the doctor asks about whether the person has been vaccinated for covid, assuming its not already in the records.
                    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                    • My kids pediatrician knew they had been vaccinated without asking, so I think if you've authorized them to access your medical records at some point they will already know.

                        Yeah, I'm with Hovey on this. I'm pretty sure medical providers are specifically excluded from HIPAA restrictions. The privacy of your medical records is not an absolute right; it's need to know and they need to know.

                        Now, I think the insurance parasites might be prohibited without your consent. At least I would hope so.

                            That's what I was thinking.

                              First, swansong will probably know best here.

                              But i'm going to wildly take a swing.

                              I don't think that's entirely true. Doctors can't just go randomly probing medical records. Most of the largest systems log who has seen your records and I'm guessing they audit those. Just because Prince is at your hospital doesn't mean you can open his records and see what happened. You need to have a reason. (I use that case specifically because they fired a bunch of people who viewed his records despite being RNs or maybe even an MD or two)

                                It is commong to answer when doing the MyChart eCheck In, and then when you go to actually check in at the desk. When was the third incidence?


                                Also, they didn't ask if you're vaccinated because they likely know already (I worked on the interface with the state). They should have confirmed, but I don't work in practice management
