HISTORY OF THE SUMMIT
The National Influenza Vaccine Summit (NIVS) 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 American Medical Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO) and was built upon the work and effort from many others, including ideas from the 2007 and 2010 National Immunization Congresses.
At the 2013 Summit meeting, the NIVS and the NAIS joined forces to become the National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit (NAIIS).
