Supplement 1: A Pathway to Leadership for Adult Immunization

Find another Issue

In the January/February 2012 supplement “A Pathway to Leadership on Adult Immunization” the National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) addresses unresolved issues in novel ways to protect adults in the United States from vaccine-preventable diseases through increased vaccination. The NVAC notes that strong leadership and coordination for adult vaccination are critical, as healthcare utilization by adults is often spread among a variety of health care providers. Additionally, developing a cohesive system for delivering routine vaccination to adults can have a longer-term impact by establishing a framework to rapidly deliver vaccines during public health emergencies, such as pandemics. Towards these ends the NVAC recommendations focus on promoting national leadership for an adult immunization program, securing resources for an adult immunization program and action plan implementation, developing a strategic plan moving forward for sustained adult immunization and addressing known barriers through specified focused activities.
