AIM State Legislative Round-Up
We are truly in the home stretch for most state legislative sessions. Recently, we’ve heard reports that many of the most concerning anti-vaccine bills have either stalled or died either in committee or due to adjournment. AIM will issue a retrospective later this summer tracking the trends in what was proposed, what became law, and what might come next. We continue to see concerning anti-vax movements undermining existing state vaccine requirements. We want to highlight again the AIM template fact sheet that you could adapt to share your state’s story about how requirements save lives and keep communities safe – available here. Finally, we want also to highlight a new organization called the SAFE Communities Coalition. They bill themselves as the nation’s first pro-vaccine political advocacy organization and are working to support pro-vaccine legislation and lawmakers.
