National Immunization Conference (NIC)
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently announced that the National Immunization Conference (NIC) will be held September 29-30, 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Mark your calendars now–this exciting meeting will bring together local, state, federal and private-sector immunization partners to look at a wide range of issues related to immunization and vaccine-preventable disease. The NIC offers the opportunity to meet immunization experts and practitioners from throughout the nation and beyond, and to talk with them about what they are doing, what is working, and what may be in the planning stages.
The conference this year will be smaller in scale than previous NIC meetings, with conference attendance limited to approximately 800 people, so early registration is strongly encouraged. The two-day conference will highlight communications with partners and the general public, issues related to the immunization of adults, current status of vaccine-preventable diseases in the United States, global immunization, HPV vaccine communication, science and safety, advances in information technology, improving vaccine management and accountability, and quality improvement in vaccine programs. This is a great opportunity to spread the word about what we are doing in California!
