What is the National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit?
The National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit (NAIIS) was founded by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Currently the NAIIS is led by the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC), the CDC, and the National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO). The NAIIS is dedicated to addressing and resolving adult and influenza immunization issues.
The NAIIS now consists of over 400 partners, representing more than 100 public and private organizations. Summit participants include a wide range of professionals from the healthcare industry, public health and private medical sectors, vaccine manufacturers and distributors, consumers, and others interested in stopping the transmission of vaccine-preventable diseases.
The Summit receives financial support from Becton Dickenson, bioCSL Inc., Health Industry Distributors Association, MedImmune, Inc., Merck & Co., Novartis Vaccines, sanofi pasteur, and Walgreens. Donations from individuals wishing to support the activities of the Summit are also accepted.
