I'm listening to the summary right now and it's very difficult to understand or hear anything they are saying. Is this going to be available later online or a video? Does anyone know?

I would really like the minutes for my radio show on monday, (and perhaps some commentary?)
curt linderman AO radio show "Linderman Live!"


If you want my meeting minutes from working group #1 "Develop new and improved vaccines", please let me know. They are too long to post, and we are only 1 hour into the meeting!


here's the other groups going on now. #3 looks good- can someone jump on?

working group 3: Support informed decision making by the public, providers...
1-800-779-6844, passcode 19562

working group 4: ensure stable supply of vaccines...
1-888-994-8791, passcode 37886

working group 5: increased global prevention with vaccines
1-888-989-4717, passcode 12377


It would be helpful if some could join other groups and we could compare notes. I am on group #1 on "develop and improved vaccines" and believe I may be the only parent advocate in this group?
Group #1- 1-888-469-1340, passcode 27271


I'm on - are you coming! 9:30 - 11:30am.
