Upcoming Events

The Path to a World Free of Polio, Measles, and Rubella, and Remaining Risks for the United States

A world free of measles, rubella, and polio is within reach, but until these diseases are eradicated worldwide, outbreaks can still occur in the United States. Health care providers and public health departments play an important role in eradicating these diseases and in protecting Americans at home and abroad.

On Tuesday, April 25 from 12 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. ET, join the National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the webinar: The Path to a World Free of Polio, Measles, and Rubella, and Remaining Risks for the United States. During the webinar, you will hear from global and domestic immunization experts, including:

  • Guthrie Birkhead, MD, MPH, Medical Officer, National Vaccine Program Office, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
  • John F. Vertefeuille, PhD, MHS, Chief, Polio Eradication Branch and Incident Manager, Emergency Polio Response, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • CDR Gavin Grant, MD, MPH, Medical Epidemiologist, Accelerated Disease Control and Vaccine Preventable Diseases Surveillance Branch, Global Immunization Division, Center for Global Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • Paul Rota, PhD, Acting Chief, Viral Vaccine Preventable Diseases Branch (proposed), Division of Viral Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Registration is now closed. A re-cast will be available after the event.

“Best Practice” Tools for Holding Safe Vaccination Clinics in Temporary Settings: Checklist and Pledge 101

Satellite, temporary, and off-site vaccination clinics play an important role in improving vaccination coverage rates and vaccinating hard-to-reach populations. However, vaccination clinics held in these settings also have unique challenges that may lead to vaccine temperature excursions or vaccine administration errors. In an effort to standardize the process of holding clinics in these non-traditional settings, the National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit Influenza Working Group developed a checklist of best practices and created a pledge for organizations that adhere to the checklist. On Tuesday, May 2 from 1 pm -2 pm ET, please join the Working Group Leads as they describe the purpose of these resources and how to use them. We will also be hearing a case study from an industry expert whose organization made efforts to implement the checklist during last year’s influenza season.

Date and Time: May 2, 2017, 1pm-2pm Eastern

Moderator: Andrew Kroger, MD, MPH, Medical Officer, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention


  • Kara Anderson, Director, Business Development, Passport Health
  • Amy J Behrman, MD, Medical Director, Occupational Medicine, Associate Professor, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania
  • Amy Parker Fiebelkorn, MSN, MPH, Epidemiologist, Deputy of the Vaccine Task Force
  • Kelly McKenna, MA, Manager, Immunization Initiative, EverThrive Illinois
