In spring 2010, the Institute of Medicine’s Preparedness Forum organized three workshops to discuss and examine the vaccination campaign. The workshops were held in Raleigh, North Carolina (April 15); Austin, Texas (April 27); and Seattle, Washington (May 11). They were organized by a planning committee that included representatives from relevant federal agencies and state and local public health authorities and associations. The workshops were designed to facilitate a series of conversations focused on the following objectives: Examine innovative efforts used to distribute and administer vaccine and discuss how they may inform future efforts; Examine how jurisdictions and providers interpreted and applied the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (CDC/ACIP) recommendations for use of 2009 H1N1 vaccine; Highlight successful approaches used by jurisdictions to develop and use innovative partnerships with traditional and non-traditional partners, such as community groups and the private sector; and Discuss strategies used to collect, monitor, evaluate, and use data during the 2009 H1N1 vaccination campaigns.

For each area, participants discussed lessons learned and challenges that arose during the vaccination campaigns and identified strategies to address these challenges for future emergency vaccination programs and other medical countermeasures dispensing campaigns.
