National Influenza Vaccine Summit Newsletter, November 27, 2006

This year, we expect record amounts of influenza vaccine (up to 110-115 million doses) to be available by the end of December. We are also aware that the phased nature of vaccine distribution has resulted in many providers not receiving their full orders of vaccine as early in the vaccination season as they would have liked, making it difficult for them to vaccinate all of their patients during October and early November. To address this challenge, and to protect as many Americans as possible against this serious disease, we want to urge providers to vaccinate every individual who wants to be protected against influenza – during NIVW, into December, and beyond.
