  • The rules for Article 8 from SB 7 passed last year are posted for comment.  The easiest way to find them at the link below is to search for “vaccination” or you may scroll down to page 2862 (p44).   Comments will be accepted until May 20 and instructions are provided on how to submit comments.   I think this legislation may have a significant impact to most facilities and from what I am hearing, many IPs feel they will be involved in this effort to vaccinate HCWs.
