Thank you to everyone who attended the 39th National Immunization Conference! This was one of our best conferences yet. Almost 1600 people from around the United States, and beyond, attended the conference, participating in a total of thirteen plenary sessions (including the opening and closing sessions), 67 workshops, two Immunization Q&A sessions, and a variety of fitness and other special events.
The goals of the Conference are to provide information that will help participants provide comprehensive immunization coverage for all age groups and explore innovative strategies for developing programs, policy, and research to promote immunization coverage for all age groups. The Conference Education Program Objective is: To bring together a wide variety of local, state, federal, and private-sector immunization partners to explore science, policy, education, and planning issues related to immunization in general and vaccine-preventable disease.
During three and a half days of plenary sessions and workshops, many topics will be discussed, including:
Adolescent Immunization * Adult Immunization * Assessment
Barriers to Vaccination * Community and Partnerships

Surveillance * Health Communications * Health Education
Policy and Legislation * New Vaccines and Vaccine Development
