Texas Immunization Stakeholder Working Group (TISWG)

Raising vaccine coverage levels will require a comprehensive, coherent, strategic approach. The state immunization system is complex and requires collaboration among many public sector, private sector, and community groups. TISWG was created to increase partnerships among these groups across the state to improve immunization practices for all Texans.

If you or your group is interested in attending please contact our Coalitions and Partnerships Coordinator, Linc Allen, at linc.allen@dshs.state.tx.us or (512) 776-6266.
