Rep. Snyder Votes to Improve Vaccination Plan


Yesterday, the State Assembly passed Assembly Bill 4 and Assembly 5, which make improvements to Wisconsin’s COVID-19 vaccination plan.  The bills are the result of an informational hearing held by the Assembly Committee on Health in which medical professionals testified about the shortcomings of the current vaccine distribution plan. These are common-sense reforms based upon the recommendations of professionals to improve Wisconsin’s vaccination program.

AB 4 and AB 5 include provisions that:

  • Place Wisconsinites over the age of 60 in the highest priority group for vaccination
  • Allow trained and supervised pharmacy technicians and pharmacy students to administer the vaccine
  • Improve the process by which vaccines are administered at long-term care facilities based on feedback from those administering vaccine
  • Require that the Department of Health Services publish a public vaccination plan and create a website for vaccinations such as those already available in many other states.


Hmong-Lao Veterans Day Legislation

I re-introduced a bill with Senator Jerry Petrowski that recognizes Southeast Asians, Americans, and their allies who served in the Secret War in Laos during the Vietnam War. The bill designates May 14th as Hmong-Lao Veterans Day in Wisconsin and encourages individuals and schools to remember and honor the extraordinary sacrifices of Hmong and Lao veterans that fought with the United States.
