  • Description:
    The Federally supported Influenza Immunization Program was developed through a vigorous scientific and public review process. A scientific briefing was held on December 22, 1977, followed by a Surgeon General's workshop on technical issues on January 12, 1978. On January 30, 1978, the Secretary's Conference on Influenza A/USSR/77 (H1N1), a broad based panel of scientists, consumer representatives, public figures, and academicians recommended: "...the development of suitable vaccines and their administration to those at high risk of severe illness or death. Federal support of influenza immunizations (provided through the States) will be essential if a substantial portion of those in need are to receive vaccine. Federal participation in influenza immunization should not be regarded as a one-time expenditure but as the beginning of a long-term commitment to support annual influenza immunization of those at highest risk."
