Notice to Readers: Guidance for Presentation of Economic Studies to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. MMWR 2008. 57 (5): 125-126.
Description:The charter of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) states that committee deliberations on the appropriate use of vaccines should include consideration of population-based studies such as efficacy, cost-benefit, and risk-benefit analyses (1). As the number and cost of vaccines have increased, economic analyses have become an essential aspect of the development of policy recommendations for their use. To ensure that economic data presented to the ACIP and its working groups are of the highest scientific quality, readily understandable, and uniform in presentation, CDC economists have developed Guidance for Health Economics Studies Presented to the ACIP. This guidance, approved by ACIP on June 27, 2007, mandates formal technical review of any economic study before its presentation to the ACIP, effective as of the ACIP meeting, June 25--26, 2008.
