Case updates October 26, 2020; Western states form workgroup to review COVID vaccines

Wednesday, October 28, 2020

Gov. Jay Inslee announced that Washington is joining other western states to review the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines when approved by the FDA.

This is an added layer of independent expert review that will help build confidence in the vaccine.

This panel of experts, begun by California Gov. Newsom last week, will expand with representatives from Washington, Oregon and Nevada.

The group will include experts appointed by all member states, and nationally-recognized scientists with expertise in immunization and public health.
