We are pleased to announce that HB-1144, HB-1200 and HB-1201 were all defeated in their committee hearings last week! We are so grateful to our coalition partners for all of the hard work put forth to defeat these bills and gather together wonderful pro-vaccine advocates to testify at the Capital.
House Business Affairs and Labor committee, where HB 1200 and 1201 were heard.
House Health and Insurance Committee, which heard HB-1144

Another day, another chance to testify against anti-vaccine bills! CIA advocates and coalition partners will testify against HB22-1200 and HB22-1201 at the House Business Affairs and Labor Committee today. Listen here.
Happening Now: Several of our pro-vaccine advocates, along with our pro-vaccine coalition partners, will testify in opposition to HB 1144 "Naturally Acquired Immunity COVID-19" which would require employers/agencies that require employees to be vaccinated for COVID-19 to accept proof of prior COVID infection in lieu of vaccination. We will be live Tweeting the hearing, so be sure to follow us @COParents4Vax. You may also listen to the House Health and Insurance Committee hearing here. Bill will likely be heard around 3:00pm.

Representatives Tracey Bennett and Karen McCormick and Senator Sonya Jaquez Lewis, Monday, February 28th 4:45pm. Register here. Submit questions here.
Colorado Immunization Advocates has new informational flyers in English and Spanish. Please help raise awareness of our work. If you have an upcoming pediatrician or other medical appointment, we would greatly appreciate it if you would print a copy of the flyers and ask their office if they would be willing to post them on any public information boards they have. These flyers are also perfect for posting on any public bulletin boards as businesses you frequent (libraries, coffee shops, etc). Thank you!
