The National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit (NAIIS) members have traditionally met in-person at annual Summit meetings to update partner organizations on issues regarding the implementation of CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) vaccine recommendations and to identify actions that NAIIS members can take to improve vaccine implementation. These in-person meetings are referred to as “Summit meetings.” During the COVID-19 pandemic, Summit meetings have been conducted virtually. Information from prior in-person and virtual meetings can be found at the links on this web page. In addition, NAIIS working groups meet throughout the year, and the NAIIS leadership organizes a weekly call with guest speakers on current vaccine implementation issues.
HISTORY OF THE NATIONAL ADULT AND INFLUENZA IMMUNIZATION SUMMIT
The National Influenza Vaccine Summit (NIVS), led by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was started in response to problems with influenza vaccine supply, and the first face-to-face meeting of the Summit took place the following year.
In 2012, the National Adult Influenza Summit (NAIS) was formed to build upon the strategies and successes of the NIVS with a focus on actions to increase adult immunization rates. The NAIS was co-led by the AMA, CDC, and the National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO). (NVPO is now the Office of Infectious Diseases Policy in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services [OIDP/DHHS].) The National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO) was built upon the work and effort from many others, including ideas from the 2007 and 2010 National Immunization Congresses.
2013 – current
At the 2013 Summit meeting, the NIVS and the NAIS joined forces to become the National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit (NAIIS). In addition, the NAIIS leadership changed in 2013 with the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) replacing AMA. CDC and OIDP remain NAIIS co-leads, along with IAC.
SUPPORT FOR THE NAIIS
The Summit meetings are organized by the Immunization Action Coalition, CDC, and OIDP/DHHS, with strong support from the Summit Organizing Committee and the Summit Advisory Group.
