The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is sponsoring the Conference on Innovative Administration Systems for Vaccines, to be held December 18--19, 2003, in Rockville, Maryland. The conference will feature recent scientific and clinical developments in existing and investigational methods to administer vaccines by routes that avoid the dangers and drawbacks of needle and syringe and that facilitate rapid implementation of mass vaccination programs. Sessions will include presentations on vaccination by the transcutaneous and mucosal (nasal, oral, and pulmonary) routes and by needle-free jet injection. The conference is coordinated by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Public Health Preparedness of DHHS and sponsored by five DHHS agencies: National Vaccine Program Office, Food and Drug Administration, National Institutes of Health, the Strategic National Stockpile, and CDC. Exhibition facilities will be available.
