Immunization Policies for the Diocese of Olympia

In February 2020 the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church (TEC) adopted a Model DFMS (Domestic & Foreign Missionary Society) Vaccination Policy for Youth Events, and encouraged dioceses and Episcopal Institutions to adapt it locally. Our Diocesan Council established a task group to adapt this into a diocesan policy, which was approved at the July council meeting.

As part of that action, the Office of the Bishop has been directed to issue written and online communications to all congregations directing them to initiate the five policies; the due date for implementation is June 1, 2021.
