AGENCY:

Office of Infectious Disease and HIV/AIDS Policy (OIDP), Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, Office of the Secretary, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

ACTION:

Notice.


SUMMARY:

The development of a National Vaccine Plan (NVP) was mandated by Congress as a mechanism for the Director of the National Vaccine Program (as delegated by the Assistant Secretary for Health) to communicate priorities for achieving the Program's responsibilities of ensuring adequate supply of and access to vaccines and ensuring the effective and optimal use of vaccines. The most recent NVP, released in 2010, provided a comprehensive 10-year national strategy for enhancing all aspects of the plan, including vaccine research and development, supply, financing, distribution, and safety; informed decision-making by consumers and health care providers; vaccine-preventable disease surveillance; vaccine effectiveness and use monitoring; and global cooperation (http://www.hhs.gov/ nvpo/ vacc_ plan/ index.html). To help inform the development of the National Vaccine Plan 2020, HHS is issuing a Request for Information (RFI). The RFI will solicit specific information regarding the priorities, goals, and objectives in the next iteration of the NVP, remaining gaps, and stakeholder perspectives for the 2020-2025 timeframe.

DATES:

To be considered, comments must be received electronically at the email address provided below, no later than 5:00 p.m. ET on October 24, 2019.

ADDRESSES:

Responses must be submitted electronically, and should be addressed to NVP.RFI@hhs.gov.Mailed paper submissions and submissions received after the deadline will not be reviewed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

With U.S. vaccination rates above 90% for many childhood vaccines, most individuals have not witnessed firsthand the devastating illnesses against which vaccines offer protection, such as polio or diphtheria. According to a recent study, routine childhood immunizations among U.S. children born in 2009 will prevent 20 million cases of disease and 42,000 premature deaths, with a net savings of $13.5 billion in direct costs

and $68.8 billion in total societal costs.[1] In contrast, adult vaccination coverage rates have remained persistently low, with only modest gains for certain populations in the past few years.[2] As a result, the standards for adult immunization practice were updated in 2014 to promote integration of vaccines into routine clinical care for adults.[3]

Despite the widespread availability of effective vaccines, vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs) remain a significant public health challenge. In particular, rates of non-medical exemptions for childhood vaccines are increasing,[4] and there have been recent measles outbreaks in the U.S.[5] and globally, due to growing vaccine hesitancy and coverage levels below the threshold needed for herd immunity. With an estimated cost of $20,000 per case of measles to the public sector in 2016,[6] the economic consequences of this and other VPDs, as well as the health consequences, are significant. Furthermore, few adults in any age group are fully vaccinated as recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. Large disparities in vaccine coverage by race/ethnicity persist, with African Americans, Hispanics, and Asian Americans lagging behind whites in nearly all vaccination coverage rates.[7] VPDs such as pertussis and hepatitis B continue to take a heavy toll on public health,[8] with 18,975 cases of pertussis and 3,409 (22,000 estimated) cases of hepatitis B infections reported in the United States in 2017.[9 10] In light of these challenges, strengthening the vaccine and immunization enterprise is a priority for HHS.

The 2010 National Vaccine Plan (https://www.hhs.gov/ sites/ default/ files/ nvpo/ vacc_ plan/ 2010-Plan/ nationalvaccineplan.pdf) and the associated implementation plan (https://www.hhs.gov/ sites/ default/ files/ nvpo/ vacc_ plan/ 2010-2015-Plan/ implementationplan.pdf) have played an important role in guiding strategies and allocations of resources with respect to vaccines and vaccination. However, since the publication of the 2010 National Vaccine Plan, there have been many changes in the vaccine landscape.

To respond to the public health challenges of VPDs, OIDP in collaboration with other federal partners is leading the development of the 2020 National Vaccine Plan. This updated plan will recommend vaccine strategies across the lifespan and guide priority actions for the period 2020-2025. To develop this plan, HHS, through OIDP, seeks input from subject matter experts and nonfederal partners and stakeholders such as health care providers, national professional organizations, health departments, school administrators, community-based and faith-based organizations, manufacturers, researchers, advocates, and persons affected by VPDs.

This request for information seeks public input on strengthening and improving the nation's response to VPDs and strategies to address infectious diseases through vaccination. The 2020 National Vaccine Program requests information in five broad areas. Responders may address one or more of the areas below:

1. Priorities for the 2020 National Vaccine Plan during 2020-2025. What do you recommend as the top priorities for vaccines and immunizations in the United States? Why are these priorities most important to you? [Provide up to 2 pages to answer these questions]

2. What changes should be made to the 2010 National Vaccine Plan to make it more current and useful? This could include changes to the goals, objectives, strategies, activities, indicators, and other areas of the plan. Which components of the 2010 National Vaccine Plan worked well and should be maintained? [Provide up to 2 pages to answer these questions]

3. What are the goals, objectives, and strategies for each of your top priority areas? Are there any goals in the current strategy that should be discarded or revised? Which ones and why? [Provide up to 2 pages to answer these questions]

4. What indicators can be used to measure your top priorities and goals? Are there any indicators in the 2010 National Vaccine Plan or the National Adult Immunization Plan (https://www.hhs.gov/ sites/ default/ files/ nvpo/ national-adult-immunization-plan/ naip.pdf) that should continue to be used? If so, which ones, and why? [Provide up to 2 pages to answer these questions]

5. Identify which stakeholders you believe should have responsibility for enacting the objectives and strategies listed in the 2020 National Vaccine Plan, as well as for any new objectives and strategies you suggest. Specifically identify roles that you or your organization might have in the 2020 National Vaccine Plan. [Provide up to 2 pages to answer these questions].

The information received will inform the development of the 2020 National Vaccine Plan.

I have heard from a different source that "The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice completes the tri-annual meeting today. They announced they want to end all religious exemptions in the USA. The public has 48 hrs after the hearing to voice their opinions. " I do see that commenting is extended through October 28th.

Gary Ogden,
Just a small point - if you eliminate all vaccine mandates, you don't need any exemptions. We have to be careful what we ask for.

go Trump

We are moving a bit beyond "Vacci-nazi America" at this point.

They will not stop until they can march house to house and inject whatever they want into whoever they want.

There needs to be documented "public vaccinations of the medical & government elite", who of course, do not participate in medicine the way the herd is expected.

Still confused why there is not an "Official FLU shot of the NFL" where they all get vaccinated nationwide on the same day for a few extra bucks.

Why can’t vaccines be safe? Why so much adjuvants like aluminum, and why all the carousel junk science about alleged genetic causes and brain structures when it’s a literal spectrum disorder with all types of symptoms? No real good “autism gene” found or whatever.

Wow no wonder U.S. kids are extremely effed up - no or few vegetables, no or few fruits, vaccine adjuvants (especially with multiple doses throughout childhood), poverty all across mainland U.S., crappy school lunches filled with germs and junk food, germ filled, gun filled public schools, awful autism day programs that prepare adults for kickout and failure, no large scale social mobility, expensive healthcare at insane prices because theocracy and trump, cold hearted, violent U.S. society, gun violence and shootings everywhere, literally everyday in all 48 mainland states, abusive and negligent parents, child molestation everywhere, theocracy, extreme liberalism/left wingism, monolingualism, socially isolated, pollution filled neighborhoods, no intense social skills or daily language education, no real good adult programs, various nutritional deficiencies... ah, late stage capitalism at its prime.

And neurodiversity supporters deny that most cases of autism aren’t simple introverts or socially awkward college students, and ND supporters shamelessly deny all the terrifying and bummer comorbid conditions they have, like epilepsy, chronic GI problems, learning disabilities, and worse. as I had chronic GI problems and learning problems myself and still do to this day, yet try to treat them the best I can despite my senile-like mind instead of denying them with welfare candy.

We should all submit a public comment on this. Te deadline is 5:00 p.m. today, less than six hours from now. Here is my posted comment:
Since there is no evidence that mass vaccination for any disease at any time in the historical record has improved health outcomes for the human populations who have had them forced upon them, I think the top priorities in the future for American health policy should be the following:
Eliminate all existing state vaccine mandates, fully restoring or adding philosophical, religious, and medical exemptions for all citizens to all vaccinations, and affirming the sacrosanct role of parents in making those decisions for their minor children.
Overturn the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, restoring liability to industry for injury and death caused by its products, as is true of virtually every other product produced by virtually every other industry in the United States.
Subpoena Dr. William S. Thompson of the CDC to testify to the Oversight Committee in Congress about the scientific fraud he witnessed and participated in regarding the MMR/autism risk the CDC assessed in Atlanta schoolchildren.
Extradite Dr. Paul Thoreson from Denmark to face the charges of defrauding taxpayers for his own personal pleasures, which has put him on your own most wanted list.
Fully audit both CDC and FDA for scientific misconduct and fraud at the highest levels, misconduct which has made Americans, and especially American children, the sickest in the developed world, and for children the sickest since before the age of antibiotics.
Fully publicize the transcript of the Simpsonwood conference. Yes, there is still mercury in vaccines, such as the majority of those produced for influenza, and many of those exported to developing countries.
Remove mercury from all stages of vaccine production.
Remove all human and animal DNA from all vaccines.
Remove all aluminum adjuvants from all vaccines.
Make mandatory in medical training and practice the recognition and reporting, upon penalty of loss of licensure, of any and all vaccine injuries occurring for at least 90 days post-vaccination. Retrain every physician in the United States to recognize vaccine injury when it occurs (in 2.6% of vaccine recipients according to the Harvard Medical School-conducted study CDC commissioned).
Subject industry executives to mandatory jail time, in addition to fines, for producing and promoting dangerous products, both pharmaceuticals and biologicals.

Headline here says, " . . . including the sitting president."

Yeah, right. Include someone who doesn't read and maybe can't read . . . in discussions that require reading and study.

If DOCTORS won't read and study, what chance is there that someone with no background and no interest is going to be a meaningful participant? Even if you could get him there.

I've ordered a custom engraved bracelet for C, which says I, C.P., do not give my consent to any vaccine. I told her to always wear it for the rest of her life, like her watch. I think all vaccine critics should do the same. I doubt they're actually going to tie people up to force injections on them. Although I might be wrong.
