U.S. National Vaccine Plan

The National Vaccine Plan is the nation’s roadmap for a 21st century vaccine and immunization enterprise. It includes strategies for advancing vaccine research and development, financing, supply, distribution, safety, global cooperation, and informed decision-making among consumers and health care providers. 

The National Vaccine Plan consists of multiple phases: a strategic plan with overall goals and objectives to achieve over a 10-year period, and implementation plans with measurable outcomes and processes to achieve the goals of the plan.

The Implementation Plan describes activities HHS agencies will undertake for the years 2010-2015 to accomplish the goals and priorities of the 2010 National Vaccine Plan.  Recognizing that success requires coordinated efforts from the public and private sectors, a series of stakeholder meetings were convened in the fall of 2011.  These meetings provided a forum for individual stakeholder input on meeting the goals in the 2010 National Vaccine Plan for specific topics and populations.  In conjunction with the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, a summary of the findings from these stakeholder meetings is available as a companion document to the Implementation Plan.

The Annual Report: The State of the National Vaccine Plan is a comprehensive progress report details the individual and collective efforts of HHS offices and agencies, along with many other federal and non-federal partners, to achieve the vision of the 2010 National Vaccine Plan.

See National Vaccine Plan Development for details on the 2008 draft of the National Vaccine Plan and the 1994 National Vaccine Plan.
