U.S. government and states negotiating about how much vaccine data will be shared

As Covid-19 vaccines begins to roll out, the government’s Operation Warp Speed is asking states to turn over data to be stored in a new national Data Clearinghouse to help track and manage the vaccination program. Most states have agreed, but some including New York and Minnesota have raised concerns about some personal information that’s been requested. Key issues are whether data could get into the wrong hands and if what’s being collected might keep some immigrant populations from participating in the program.
