    cdc:60431 Based on CDC’s Interim updated planning guidance on allocating and targeting pandemic influenza vaccine during an influenza pandemic, 2018. Roadmap for Vaccination of Critical Workforce Personnel During an Influenza Pandemic A key action of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), outlined in the 2017 HHS Pandemic Influenza Plan, is to support production and distribution of pandemic influenza vaccine matched to the circulating pandemic influenza vaccine strain within 12 weeks from declaration of an influenza pandemic.1 However, early in a response, the vaccine supply may not be sufficient to meet the demand for the entire U.S. population. In this case, decisions about how to target this initial supply of pandemic influenza vaccine will need to be made. These decisions will be based not only on vaccine supply, but also on epidemiology, severity, and assessment of potential for disruption of essential community services in context of publicly articulated pandemic influenza vaccination program objectives and principles. CDC’s Interim Updated Planning Guidance on Allocating and Targeting Pandemic Influenza Vaccine during an Influenza Pandemic (2018) outlines this strategy but includes limited information on how state and local planners should plan for implementing and operationalizing pandemic vaccine targeting decisions.2 In a severe influenza pandemic, disease can spread rapidly in a community and may result in notable losses in work days, particularly among critical workforce groups who provide response functions and essential basic services to communities.Disease and absenteeism among critical workforce may increase the negative impact of an influenza pandemic on a community. Pandemic influenza vaccine may only be available in incremental, limited supplies during the initial stages of an influenza pandemic. Therefore, it may be necessary to target available pandemic vaccine to protect these critical workforce personnel in both public and private sectors. Though some groups at high risk for severe disease associated with influenza may also be part of initial pandemic vaccination targeting, this document does not specifically address approaches for targeting these groups. These groups at high risk for severe disease associated with influenza infection are often part of routine immunization outreach. On the other hand, planning for identification and vaccination of critical workforce, especially in the private sector, has been identified as a major gap in operational readiness in many jurisdictions. To address this gap, this document is intended to be used by state and local planners as a guide, or “roadmap,” of proposed steps to planning for and implementing pandemic influenza vaccination of critical workforce personnel in their communities.
