The State Board of Health (Board) has been coordinating with the state Department of Health to convene a technical advisory group (TAG) to consider a COVID-19 vaccine against the Board’s criteria and a recommendation made on whether to add it to the state’s list of required immunizations for school entry. Details about the process the Board uses to convene a technical advisory group and the criteria it uses to review antigens for potential inclusion to the state’s immunizations list is provided in the Board’s Immunization Criteria Document. Board members voted at the October public meeting to begin the process to convene an immunizations TAG.
