ACTION ALERT: WA BOH TAG Meeting Thursday 2-10-2022

The Washington State Board of Health (BOH) is authorized by law (RCW 28A.210.140) to decide what vaccines children in the state will be required to have for daycare and school entry (preschool-12). They go through a formal rule-making process to create rules related to the RCW and to add new shot requirements to WAC 246-105.

The BOH recently formed a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to consider COVID-19 shots for school entry. This is a meeting intended to develop recommendations for the full Board. Their first meeting has been scheduled for:

Thursday, Feb. 10 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time

via the Zoom Webinar platform. This webinar is open to the public but there will be no public comment time. The BOH has 9 Criteria they use to evaluate vaccines they are considering. During this first TAG meeting, they will be considering Criteria items #5 and #6. They will be voting at the end of the meeting on whether they feel COVID shots pass those two criteria.

Informed Choice WA submitted a response to all nine Criteria, available here.

The TAG agenda is now available and so are some of the meeting materials and names of presenters.
