Ohio Vaccination Legislation Update

House Bill 248

After a series of opponent hearings in the Ohio House Health Committee, House Bill 248, a broad anti-vaccination proposal opposed by a large coalition of groups in the medical and business communities (as well as public health experts) did not have the votes to pass out of the committee in its current form. Numerous physicians were among the over 300 individuals to submit written testimony opposing HB 248 in advance of the hearings on June 15 and June 22.

Due to all the hard work the result of our advocacy on HB 248 and that our efforts helped prevent the bill from advancing forward out of the committee with a vote before the legislators left for their summer recess.
