  • Description:
    In the summer of 2011, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention held four public meetings across the country and engaged 277 local stakeholders and interested members of the public in a pilot project designed to get input regarding the values that could inform ACIP recommendations about whether or how to add new vaccines to the childhood immunization schedule. Participants had a general discussion about vaccines that protect children from rare but severe illnesses and a specific discussion about recently licensed and soon-to-be licensed meningococcal vaccines for infants.

    The four public meetings were part of a process that also engaged national-level stakeholders in the same discussion. There was one national stakeholder meeting in advance of the public meetings (May 25, 2011) and one meeting after the four public meetings (October 5, 2011). The stakeholder meetings involved participants from a number of organizations, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, the Heritage Foundation, the National Meningitis Association, Meningitis Angels, and Women in Government.
