The Society recently joined the Campaign for Adult Immunization, an effort organized by the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases. The campaign’s goals are to close the funding gap for adult vaccination, support an Immunization Congressional Caucus, and ensure that all adults are fully aware of and have access to appropriate vaccinations.
The Society’s work in this area, an important IDSA priority, is ongoing. Earlier this month, IDSA staff attended the first-ever National Adult Immunization Summit, co-hosted by the American Medical Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Vaccine Program Office. The event, to be held annually, convened various stakeholders to begin identifying specific actions to improve adult vaccination rates and increase awareness of recommended vaccinations. Speaker presentations from the summit are available online.
