Fox News learned: MyHealthIQ wins approval to start tracking vaccines administered to 1 million kids

Fox News is learning the government is set to approve the childhood vaccine the CDC says is the best protection against infectious diseases, easing the restrictions the Trump administration instituted on vaccines to keep children from entering the country illegally.

The Trump administration has so far held back the nationally licensured vaccination for six kids, and will start issuing final approval next week. Officials did not respond to requests for comment on whether the Federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System — the main repository of complaints about vaccines — will now allow these children to be tracked.

The vaccine is known as COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it is the best preventative measure against infectious diseases.

Fox News is told Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, whose department oversees vaccines, has signed off on the document, allowing the program to begin issuing final approval for the vaccine.

This means the children will soon be able to be tracked by an electronic database, in other words, can be tracked to see if they ever get sick.

Fox News has also learned the White House Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, to which senior administration officials were referred for comment, has set up a document called “Vaccine Data ” to explain the decision.

There will still be some restrictions placed on vaccination — the children will not be allowed into areas like jails and juvenile centers, and immigration judges will be able to force some kids from the program to have vaccinations.
