How can the federal government or anyone else for that matter ask if any individual has been vaccinated.

Let’s quote a famous case that is still current law
TheCourt's decisions recognizing a right of privacy also acknowledge that some state regulation in areas protected by that right is appropriate. As noted above, a State may properly assert important interests in safeguarding health, in maintaining medical standards, and in protecting potential life.
…. The privacy right involved, therefore, cannot be said to be absolute.
… The Court has refused to recognize an unlimited right of this kind in the past. Jacobson v. Massachusetts, 197 U. S. 11 (1905) (vaccination);
We, therefore, conclude that the right of personal privacy ……is not unqualified, and must be considered against important state interests in regulation.
Sorry but your argument goes nowhere…. And if you want to know the case it’s Roe V Wade.

Because so far nearly every court has said they can.
PLEASE DO NOT email or call with follow up questions or comments to Mr. Cassara. I will not respond. This post is for information purposes only and does not constitute legal advice, nor does it establish an attorney client relationship with Mr. Cassara.
It is the Courts who decide what is Constitutional and none have thus far agreed with your legal assessment (of which you are only 'pretty sure' yourself).
NO ATTORNEY CLIENT PRIVILEGE is created by this or any other response by Attorney Rafter on Avvo. Select 'Best Answer' if you believe you got helpful information. Answers in Jurisdictions other than the State and Federal courts in Virginia are anchored in general legal principals not state specific law. Mr. Rafter is licensed in the state and Federal courts in the Commonwealth of Virginia. For specific responses on your specific issues and the laws in your state, you need to speak directly with an attorney in your own state. It is generally not possible for anyone to post sufficient facts or details about their situation that would generate a response on this or any other website that would fully and adequately address the legal problem posed. The answer to “speak to an attorney” is absolutely proper and correct in every situation.
Maybe it does, maybe not. You didn't ask a question, though. If you feel strongly enough about the issue and have the funds to fight it, you can always retain an attorney to sue and make your case. You never know - your case could be the defining case in American jurisprudence in this area.
Just because I answer your question does not mean that I am your lawyer, or that you should take action based on my answer. I am not your lawyer. I can give you my best guess based on the facts as you present them in your question. ***Any questions that I ask in my response are rhetorical, which means that I do not want you to answer my questions.*** And, please, never call me or e-mail me directly. Thanks.
