Make your voice heard on a decision facing Americans about the H1N1 vaccine...

In July, the Secretary of Health and Human Services announced that the federal government expects to initiate a voluntary fall vaccination program against the 2009 H1N1 flu virus. The CDC will help state and local health organizations develop the vaccination program and are working to decide the scope of the program for vaccinating Americans against the novel H1N1 pandemic influenza virus.

In these web-based dialogues the public discussed, deliberated, and offered input to the CDC as it considered whether to take a "full-throttle" or a "go-easy" approach to mass vaccination, or a moderate approach somewhere in-between?

The dialogues have concluded. Please visit each site to review discussion summaries. The final report, available from the Keystone Center, is also available.
