Established in 2010, the National Vaccine Plan (NVP) is the nation’s leading roadmap for a 21st century vaccine and immunization enterprise. The NVP articulates a comprehensive strategy to enhance all aspects of vaccination, through the following five overarching goals:

Mid-course Review

Many factors may affect the ability to achieve National Vaccine Plan objectives. Opportunities may emerge that facilitate rapid progress and achievement of objectives sooner than anticipated. On the other hand, existing challenges and barriers may be more difficult to overcome than anticipated and new challenges may emerge. Recognizing these uncertainties, NVPO is coordinating a mid-course review of the Plan after five years, allowing changes to be made which respond to the reality of the environment. Modified indicators, strategies, actions, and milestones will guide subsequent annual evaluation through the overall ten-year horizon of the Plan.
