Starting in October 2020, the Attorney General Alliance, led by our Chair – North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenejhem – set out to force a dialogue between the state’s best and brightest legal minds and the private sector about issues related to an eventual COVID-19 vaccine.
There was no approved vaccine when the project began, and most assumed a vaccine was unlikely to be approved in calendar year 2020. That is, the issue was – and remains – fluid and uncertain. A great deal about a vaccine response to COVID-19 remains a work in progress, and it is begrudgingly accepted that such ambiguity will remain the norm for months (even years) to come. Regardless, state Attorneys General are leaders that citizens turn to for reliable answers during times of insecurity.
As a continuation of our five cohorts the Chair’s Initiative will proceed as a bi-monthly working group series via Zoom to address and discuss existing and new topics related to vaccine rollout.
Starting January 27th, calls will take place every other Wednesday until June 8th, 2021. Please note this schedule remains a flexible outline – based on substance, we may extend or cut short this proposed end date.
