Appendix B
Statement of Task

The federal government issued “Disease Prevention through Vaccine Development and Immunization, The US National Vaccine Plan” in 1994. The Institute of Medicine will convene an ad hoc committee to review the 1994 National Vaccine Plan and then provide guidance on the development of the update to the National Vaccine Plan. This will be delineated in a letter report to the National Vaccine Program Office.


The paragraph above constitutes the statement of task for the first part of the committee’s work. A short description of the second part of the committee’s work is provided below.


The committee will hold five meetings, each of which will involve a significant portion of time in open session with expert stakeholders to explore areas of the developing plan. Verbatim, uncorrected transcripts of the open sessions will be delivered to NVPO within a month after each meeting. Commissioned papers will be presented on less-well explored areas of the Plan. A final consensus report about priorities for the updated National Vaccine Plan will be delivered and publicly released no later than six months after the final meeting.
