The National Influenza Vaccine Summit was initiated in 2001 in response to major delays in the production and distribution of the nation's influenza vaccine supply during the 2000-2001 influenza season.
The summit has evolved into an informal partnership between the CDC and AMA with an executive committee and eight working groups that collaborate year-round on relevant issues concerning influenza vaccine production, distribution, and administration systems.
Members of the media are asked to check-in at the conference registration table. There will be a media table with telephone lines for print reporters and an area for cameras with sound connections for broadcast media.
