There’s a new government web portal where Americans can file official complaints against medical practices and other service providers for violating conscience and religious freedom laws as they pertain to “mandatory” vaccinations.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) now offers anybody wanting to do so the ability to write, fax, email, or use the Office of Conscience and Religious Freedom (OCR) Complaint Portal to report cases of illicit vaccine coercion, or simply to voice their concerns about the questionable ways that healthcare service providers push vaccines.
HHS is asking that everyone who files a complaint to not only provide the name of the service provider in question, but to also provide specific details about the alleged malfeasance. HHS also requests any additional information that will help OCR determine an appropriate course of action.
You can file complaints with OCR for yourself AND others
Complainants who opt to submit their grievances via the OCR Portal are offered information about their rights as citizens to not be unfairly treated or discriminated against for their vaccine decisions.
“Federal Conscience and Religious Freedom Laws help to protect you from coercion, discrimination on the basis of conscience or religion, and burdens on the free exercise of religion,” the page states.
There are also numerous specific examples provided as to the types of covered entities for which OCR conducts investigations about conscience and religious freedom violations. These include:
• State and local government agencies that are responsible for administering health care
• State and local government income assistance and human service agencies
• Medicaid and Medicare providers
• Physicians and other health care professionals in private practice with patients assisted by Medicaid
• Family health centers
• Community mental health centers
• Alcohol and drug treatment centers
• Nursing homes
• Foster care homes
• Public and private adoption and foster care agencies
• Day care centers
• Senior citizen centers
• Nutrition programs
• Any entity established under the Affordable Care Act
• Health insurance plans or companies
• Homeless shelters
• Health researchers
“If you believe that a covered entity discriminated against you or violated your (or someone else’s) civil rights, conscience rights, or religious freedom rights, you may file a complaint with OCR,” the page explains. “You may file a complaint for yourself, your organization, or for someone else.”
How to contact OCR by “snail” mail and email
Complainants who do not wish to use the OCR Portal can opt to file a complaint by “snail” mail or by email:
Centralized Case Management Operations
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
200 Independence Avenue, S.W.
Room 509F HHH Bldg.
Washington, D.C. 20201
If you choose to go this route, just be sure to include your full name, address, telephone number(s), email address, and the same information for another person and/or organization if you’re filing a complaint on behalf of some other entity. You’ll also need to provide a description of the alleged violation, including how, why, and when you believe that conscience or religious freedom rights were violated.
Be sure to also sign and date your complaint if you’re sending it by snail mail, as well as provide any “special accommodations” necessary in order for HHS and OCR to get in touch with you for a follow-up. Email correspondences with OCR do not require a signature because the email itself represents that signature.
