Thank Governor Polis for Supporting Common-Sense Vaccine Policy!
More than half a million students in Colorado attend schools where vaccination rates aren’t high enough to provide full protection from vaccine-preventable childhood illnesses. We must act to improve our state’s alarmingly low vaccination rates.
This week, Colorado Governor Jared Polis expressed his support for a proposed policy change that will aim to boost Colorado’s lowest-in-the-nation vaccination rates. This is big.
We want to show Governor Polis that we are grateful to him for supporting this important policy solution and aligning with the vast majority of Coloradans who support vaccination. We need your help to say thank you to Governor Polis for supporting this common-sense policy change that will improve vaccination rates and support public health!
The Colorado Healthy Communities Act, expected to be introduced in the legislature later this week, will work to keep students and the most vulnerable members of our communities who cannot be vaccinated – the very young, the very old and those with compromised immune systems – safe and protected from harmful diseases.
The Senate bill does three important things:
It helps make our schools and child care facilities safer and healthier by setting a 95 percent vaccination goal and providing support to help groups meet that goal
It strengthens Colorado’s lax exemption policies and helps parents make informed decisions about vaccination by requiring parents who exempt to consult a health care provider or complete a state-issued online vaccine education course
It helps to ensure we have accurate data about immunizations should it be needed in the case of an outbreak
We must ensure Governor Polis knows that we – the majority of Coloradans who support vaccination – commend and appreciate his support of safer schools and healthier communities!
Stay involved throughout this legislative session in support of the Colorado Healthy Communities Act:
Tell your story! Share why you support strong vaccination policy in media interviews, through testimony at committee hearings or on social media.
