What is the National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit?
The National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit (NAIIS) is dedicated to addressing and resolving adult and influenza immunization issues and improving the use of vaccines recommended by CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. The NAIIS consists of over 700 partners, representing more than 130 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 preventing illness, disability, and deaths through the use of recommended vaccines. Broad-based leadership of the NAIIS is conducted through the members of the Summit Organizing Committee (SOC).
The financial matters of the NAIIS are administered by the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC), a Minnesota-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. On behalf of the NAIIS, IAC currently 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 also are accepted. Receipt of funding does not influence the activities of the Summit, which are coordinated separately by the SOC.
