This paper explores conflictual policy transfer in Italian vaccination policy 2007-2018. The region of Veneto formally suspended mandatory vaccination in 2007. Soon after, declining vaccination rates across the country sparked a public health crisis. Emilia Romagna adopted a new vaccine mandate for early education, which the national government adopted in 2017. Each policy decision invoked collaboration and contestation between governments. In showing the conflictual aspects of intra-state policy transfer, we offer lessons for multi-level health governance of contested issues.
