VLA Comment: HR 4919 The authority for this new law is not under Health and Human Health Services (HHS). Tracking is under the Attorney General and the Dept of Justice, State and local law enforcement, which lends itself to tracking of multiple persons under law enforcement agencies.
VLA comment: For example: How many “normal” or vaccine injured children do you know that have been diagnosed as Bi polar, ADHD, OCD, mentally ill, has neurodevelopmental disorders? ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is classified as a psychiatric disorder. Bi Polar, a chronic mental illness. Need I go on?
