Texas Immunization Stakeholder Working Group (TISWG)

Back to Immunization Branch Partnerships


TISWG Background
The TISWG was formulated as a recommendation of various studies and legislation passed by the 78th legislature to increase partnerships across the state to raise vaccine coverage levels and improve immunization practices for all Texans.

Texas Immunization System
Recent studies indicate that 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.
