WHEREAS, that health burden translates into a substantial direct and indirect cost to the health care delivery system as well as to communities,
Be it resolved that the NVAC recommends that the Assistant Secretary for Health request that the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices consider relevant data on the efficacy and potential benefit for recommending use of Hepatitis A vaccine in endemic areas and coverage provided through the Vaccine for Children program.
