Notice to Readers: Neonatal Vaccination Workshop

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is sponsoring the First International Neonatal Vaccination Workshop during March 2--4, 2004, in McLean, Virginia. The workshop will explore strategies to protect neonates from bacterial, viral, and parasitic agents. Sessions will focus on the immune responses of the neonate to vaccine antigens, review clinical experience with vaccines administered to neonates, consider expanded use of vaccines in the neonate from industry and regulatory perspectives, and weigh alternative strategies to protect neonates (e.g., maternal immunization).

The workshop is coordinated by the National Vaccine Advisory Committee's Future Vaccines Subcommittee, CDC, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health, and the Task Force for Child Survival and Development and is supported by a grant from the DHHS National Vaccine Program Office. Additional information about the workshop, including submission of abstracts, registration, and hotel accommodations, is available from the Task Force for Child Survival and Development, telephone 404-592-1425, e-mail, and from CDC at
