“It’s A HIPAA Violation Meme” Roasts People Who Mistakenly Believe Asking If You’re Vaccinated Is A HIPAA Violation (19 Memes)


First people were getting fake vaccination cards (and getting caught), now they’re on to something much easier to do: Telling people that ask if they’ve been vaccinated that doing so violates HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) and their rights to privacy under it.

Spoiler alert you know is coming: that’s not how HIPAA works. And Twitter is having a field day making memes about it.

Not to get too into depth, because it’s boring, but TL;DR employers and businesses are well within their rights to ask if you’ve been vaccinated.

And employers can legally require that workers get the vaccine, with some medical and religious exceptions.

HIPAA does prohibit healthcare providers, health insurance companies, and some related businesses from disclosing your medical information without your consent, but that’s not what is going on here. People aren’t calling your doctor asking about your medical records, they’re asking you to your face if you’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Anyway, since it’s so silly, let’s not spend any more time on it and just move onto the memes:
