Health officials are refusing to release information showing vaccination status of individuals with newly reported COVID infections. As the Tampa Bay Times reports, experts can this data to show how the omicron variant spreads and how immunity from vaccines changes over time. A Department of Health spokesperson told the Times that this information is exempt from disclosure, citing an exemption for epidemiology reports. Notably, the exemption allows the release of information when necessary to public health. FAF Executive Director, Pamela Marsh, noted that if now is not the time to release information, when will it ever be necessary?
