Kyle Kuzma shouldn’t be allowed to tweet about the COVID-19 vaccine

” I think thats HIPAA,” Prescott smiled slyly, although he clearly having no idea what he was talking about.

Mets collapse coincided directly with bringing the Black jerseys back by Jordanna Clark.
Previous Los Angeles Laker Kyle Kuzma tweets false information about COVID-19 vaccine confidentiality, showing the NBA world that he has no idea how HIPAA works.
After years of the “doctor-patient privacy” idea being tossed around on medical soap operas, the principle has been watered down into something indistinguishable.
Lately, expert athletes appear to think that divulging their vaccination status to media is a violation of HIPAA, the medical code that lawfully imposes physician to keep medical details private. Former Laker Kyle Kuzma has actually apparently hitched his wagon to this train of misinformation, strongly indicating that his rejection to disclose his vaccination status is simply “following HIPAA”.

Unless Kuzma moonlights as a doctor, HIPAA doesnt apply to him whatsoever.
Kyle Kuzma clearly doesnt understand how HIPAA works in COVID-19 vaccine tweet.
Kuzmas point is that just because he does not disclose his vaccination status does not mean hes anti-vaccination, which is completely reasonable– its simply something that does not include HIPAA.
Kuzma does not have to follow HIPAA; his medical professionals do. However he isnt the first professional athlete to make this awkward gaffe.

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA – APRIL 13: Kyle Kuzma # 0 of the Los Angeles Lakers looks on throughout their game against the Charlotte Hornets at Spectrum Center on April 13, 2021 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The reality about Kuzmas vaccination status was made rather apparent when Dennis Schroder exposed that he was the only unvaccinated Laker last season. Kuzma, who was traded away to the Washington Wizards this summer, is now colleagues with the unvaccinated Bradley Beal.

So when did following HIPAA guidelines correlate to being Anti-vaccinated?

The truth about Kuzmas vaccination status was made rather apparent when Dennis Schroder revealed that he was the only unvaccinated Laker last season. This season, Lakers basic supervisor Rob Pelinka declared that all 2021 Lakers will be fully immunized on opening night. Kuzma, who was traded away to the Washington Wizards this summer, is now colleagues with the unvaccinated Bradley Beal.
