CDC requests feedback about this year's National Infant Immunization Week
CDC has requested that immunization coalition leaders and others involved in immunization complete a survey regarding National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) 2013. This survey, which should take no more than 5 minutes, will provide valuable feedback and information as CDC continues to develop resources for future NIIWs.
If you have questions or additional feedback on NIIW, contact Brain Katzowitz.

Test drive IAC's new Adult Vaccination Resources Library
The Immunization Action Coalition, in collaboration with the National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit, has developed a new resource, the Adult Vaccination Resources Library (AVRL). This online library gathers adult immunization resources into one location, allowing healthcare providers and the general public to pinpoint adult immunization resources that can be used in a clinic setting or for individual education. Using simple keywords and other selected criteria, you can search the library to find the resources that meet your needs.
We invite you to try out this new resource and provide feedback before we launch AVRL to a larger audience. To offer comments, report broken links, or submit suggestions for resources that should be included, please send an email to Laurel Wood. Please put “AVRL Suggestion” in the subject line.
