Structure, Role, and Procedures of ACIP

Policy recommendations for the use of vaccines in the United States since 1964 have been developed by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which advises the U.S. government on the most appropriate selection of vaccines and related agents for effective control of vaccine-preventable diseases in the civilian population. The committee provides advice for the control of diseases for which a vaccine is licensed in the U.S. This report presents an overview of the history, structure, function and legal authority of the ACIP, and reviews the process of recommendation development; the role played by economic analyses; the role of manufacturers, insurers and other interest groups; and problems encountered and future direction of the committee.
