A new app launched by the state Health Department called Docket, that lets Minnesotans access their immunization records on their mobile device, has Commissioner Jan Malcolm on even more shaky ground with Senate Republicans, who are talking about ousting her the next chance they get.  Malcolm says:

“Docket helps meet the rising public demand we’ve been seeing for more accessible immunization records.”

Republican Senator Karin Housley from Stillwater calls it a “vaccine passport”  that goes against the Constitution:

“It’s very clear the law states that this has to go through legislative process, so there’s quite a few members that are pretty upset with Commissioner Malcolm.”

Commissioner Malcolm says while she thinks many people will prefer and be well-served by the app, “it is absolutely not required.”
