Weld County commissioners walk back plan to stop posting vaccine information on social media

9NEWS: When Weld County Commissioners said they would stop sharing vaccine information on social media pages, they appeased a small group of anti-vaccine advocates. As soon as the public caught on about the new plan, the commissioner in charge of approving the health department’s social media posts walked back his comments.

Commissioner Scott James told 9NEWS that Weld County will continue posting information about vaccines on social media, reversing a stance the commission took during a Nov. 24 meeting.

“I had made a comment in a public meeting about how I was not going to approve any more Facebook posts. I was caught up in the moment about that particular Facebook post,” said James. “It’s not within my purview to change the policies of the board of county commissioners in that manner.”
