Wouldn't asking about medical info such as vaccine status/history fall under "genetic information discrimination?" Seems like based on the definition they post it can, but not sure what the legal precedents or reading is on this...

Per the EEOC -

Under Title II of GINA, it is illegal to discriminate against employees or applicants because of genetic information.

...

Genetic information includes information about an individual's genetic tests and the genetic tests of an individual's family members, as well as information about the manifestation of a disease or disorder in an individual's family members (i.e. family medical history). Family medical history is included in the definition of genetic information because it is often used to determine whether someone has an increased risk of getting a disease, disorder, or condition in the future.
