Does anyone have a link to the minutes of the February advisory committee meeting <i>besides</i> the CDC site?<br><br>
I emailed the CDC three times asking when they were going to post it . . . with no response. The June meeting is almost here and they still haven't posted the <i>February</i> minutes! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Do they post the actual minutes or just a compilation?<br><br>
And where do you go to ask for them?<br><br>
And they should be posted here on MDC each months, no?

Yes, it's the actual minutes! Here's the link (the latest minutes is the June 2004 meeting and I think there's supposed to be an October 2004, but I don't see it):<br><br><a href="http://www.cdc.gov/nip/ACIP/minutes.htm" target="_blank">http://www.cdc.gov/nip/ACIP/minutes.htm</a><br><br>
Please everyone take a look . . . very interesting forecast!!!!

<i>Here's a blurb regarding Hepatitis A:</i><br><br>
Hepatitis A Update<br>
Overview: Summary of progress of hepatitis A prevention in the United States:<br><br>
Several options through which to further reduce incidence were outlined. These included improved implementation of current vaccination recommendations for children and high-risk adults (the latter historically difficult to do) and <b>extension of vaccination to<br>
children nationwide</b>.<br><br>
Cost effectiveness is always a consideration, as are the feasibility<br>
and acceptability to the public and whether a licensed hepatitis A vaccine for children aged 1 year will be released in the near future.<br><br>
Merck Presentation: Hepatitis A Vaccine (VAQTA®) for Children Aged ≥1 Year<br>
Presenter: Dr. Barbara Kuter<br><br>
Overview: Data developed by Merck, and filed with the FDA, on the use of the hepatitis A vaccine VAQTA® among children aged 1 year and older. All such hepatitis A vaccines are currently licensed for use from age 2 years.<br><br><b>Earlier vaccination against hepatitis A would provide earlier protection and could prevent more severe disease in adults, since children are a reservoir for infection. Vaccine licensed from age one year could also be incorporated into the routine childhood immunization schedule.</b>

If I remember correctly, I think these were the meeting minutes (June 2004) wherein they recommended the new meningitis vaccine be put on the schedule for all adolecents! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:
