Pandemic Vacscine Distribution Policy for the Twenty-First Century – Homeland Security Affairs – 2012

“Introduction

The nation’s response to the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic has been met with scrutiny, candor, and a collaborative effort among federal and state agencies, local public health authorities, associations, and experienced practitioners. The Institutes of Medicine and Center for Biosecurity have held conferences that have paved the way toward improving pandemic response.1 The workshop format used at these conferences resulted in the identification and exploration of issues relating to vaccine supply, administration, and distribution by both attendees and panelists. However, after-action vaccine distribution discussions failed to result in an overarching implementation strategy that could be linked to many elements of a coherent vaccine distribution strategy. This article presents a model that could serve as a conceptual framework for designing a pandemic vaccine distribution policy.”
