Wyoming Department of Health Withdraws Proposed Changes to Immunization Rules

CHEYENNE — The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) is withdrawing a set of proposed changes to Wyoming Immunization Program administrative rules.

In light of the current COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic response, it was determined a portion of the proposed rule changes could have presented an unexpected challenge to the department’s school partners.

Proposed changes would have added meningococcal vaccination to school requirements, clarified school vaccination requirements and clarified provider agreement requirements for the immunization information system.
